Tonight I was reformatting my external hard drive when I accidentally chose the wrong drive and reformatted my internal hard drive. My screen went black and now I have a computer with no operating to boot up. What are my chances of recovering? How can I recover my hard drive?

P. S. I tried doing a system restore and my disks hang on 80% completion twice now.

All help is greatly appreciated as this has been very frustrating. Thank you.

What is the make and model of this computer?

Do you have the installation disk for the operating system?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
