When I tried to start it up, it went to a black screen and I can't get anywhere from there. Someone told me to put in a system restore CD and it would help to leave it in and restart it. I did, and it ended up corrupting basically everything. I was able to open AOL, and from there I tried to open several other programs but I got an error message saying that the file was corrupted and I need to reinstall it..
Should I just do a full system restore? Or will that not do anything? I really need help with this because it's a fairly new computer and I can't afford to purchase a new one, or is that my only alternative??
Please help, I'm desperate for some kind of solution since I haven't gotten anything from anyone.
