Then the only question is, Would this be a fairly new system from 2007 or so? or an older system?
It will need a trip to a computer shop for basic examination as to whether
- A: it is a destroyed system disk, or something can be gotten off it, of your photos and files,
- B: it just needs a trifle of Startup Repair, perhaps. Or a mere adjustment to the Boot Order in the Setup BIOS settings.
- C: it might need the hard disk replaced altogether ? which is possible, in which case, your data on the computer might be lost... I'm sorry to say this, but it is possible.
You can try to boot it up in Safe Mode now, of course, in which case the mere Startup Repair might be able to be done here and now, by you, under my direction. Would you like to try this?
