Hi and thanks for writing us here at JustAnswer.com. Please know that to resolve your question may take some back and forth questions and answers.
Note that if at all possible to make sure your data is backed up first before starting troubleshooting. We cannot assure that settings, data, pictures, etc., will remain intact during our troubleshooting. We do our best to retain your data, but in the end this is not always possible.
We are here to help and will do our best to resolve your issue; we are not here to just make money. Also note that we do NOT work for any company and in no way represent them on their products and/or services.
Finally, at any point during the troubleshooting when we ask for info, be sure to give any and all details about lights, sounds, noises, messages, and errors you may see or have seen. What may not mean much to a standard user may mean a vital clue to us experts. Also, note that example pics included in responses are just that, EXAMPLES, and may not reflect exactly what you will see, but are for general reference and to help the client understand what in general they are looking for at any given point.
I saw your posting and would like to try and help.
Let me first ask, if this is a install form CD or a recovery partition?
