I need help. I bought this computer in July of '11, and have already killed the dang thing. Give me software and I'll have it doing tricks in no time, but don't ask me nuthin' about the back end - I'm stumped.
I used to download games from some torrent sites (note the USED to!!). When one that I wanted didnt work, I made the horrible mistake of downloading the torrent from a google search site. Youch! Everything closed, computer turned off, and when it turned back on it said something to the effect of that's not a valid boot option. Got a CD to try?
I've tried the Kapersky rescue disk I made the day I bought it, I've tried re-installing with the disks that came with the computer. I've done the F12 and had it test everything, tried to turn it back to stock via the F12 - nothing is working. The testing shows everything is working fine, no errors, but when I try to boot I continually get the not a valid boot option. I don't know what to do. I'm running the F12 tests again, just in case, because it's been about a month since this happened I thought maybe it just needed to sleep. lol
