First things first before proceeding with what I want you to do use the following to backup your data before proceeding onto the next step
- Please download Puppy Linux from here
- Please download and install IMGBurn from here
- Burn the Puppy Linux CD ISO using IMGBurn, to do this start IMGBurn and select the option which says Write image file to disc
- Browse for the Puppy Linux CD ISO (Will look like a folder with a magnifying glass
- Then hit the button at the bottom (Image file to CD)
- Wait for it to complete the burning process
- Boot the computer up and boot off the CD (If it doesn't go into the BIOS and look for boot device priority and make CD/DVD number 1, hard drive second)
- To get access to the BIOS press F2 and DEL alternatively
- Hit enter and follow the prompts till ya get to the main desktop - (Please note this is a live CD and will not require any installation)
- When on the desktop you will see hard drive icons at the bottom (example sda1,sda2 etc...)
- If you have one hard drive installed it will probably be sda2, however you will soon know by the folders you will see
- Make sure you have a USB memory pen ready and copy your data onto the memory pen
When your data is backed up please do a repair installation. Details on how to do this can be found here

Its seems that your computer is slightly different. It is usually F8 for Last known good configuration however out of interest try F5 as this was the button for my last computer.

- No operating system installed (been deleted)
How to perform a repair installation]
To do the above fixes you will need a CD/DVD writer which you may need to buy to get the problem fixed.
