I was online working on an online course i just started to get my insurance liscense, all of a sudden my computer started making noises that are associated with closing windows or programs, i minimized my firefox window, and found that the only things left on my desktop were "my computer" "documents" "control panel" and "microsoft outlook" i maximized the firefox window again to try and log out of my coursework and found that firefox crashed, in the matter of 5 minutes everything shut stopped running, i then got an error message to flash breifly but not long enough to read, then the computer shut down. i rebooted it into safemode with command prompt did some looking in dos, and found that all the directories were empty,including the recovery partition, it had been demolished. although according to checkdisk it still shows that the c drive has something in it, it seems to be hidden from view, so i tried to boot back up into normal mode, and the computer was workingexcept the icons were still gone as were all of my files from my documents. then i got error messages saying my hard drive was at risk of failure and to run a scan and repair, at that point i also got an error saying that my ram had bad clusters and to run a scan and repair, my internet drivers have been removed, is there anything that can be done to fix it? how can i download programs onto it if i cant get online? any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
