ok for this dell alien: i'm sorry, i just restarted it and read the black screen again and it flashes by pretty fast but what comes up is the black and white alien head just for a second then the black screen has 3 options
something about the recovery console is the first line
the second line says : "do not choose this [something about debugger]
third line is windows xp and it's highlighted.
there is a paragraph above the choices and another paragraph below but it flashes too fast to read and goes on into xp.
oh and i forgot but on the other machine i did a backup right before it crashed if that makes a difference and have it saved on a data card.

Then plug in the USB with FRST on it
At the command prompt type the following :
notepad and press Enter.
The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
In the command window type e:\frst64.exe and press Enter
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
The tool will start to run.
When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

black screen with words at the top saying that this is the recovery console and is for system repair and recovery and then
WHICH WINDOWS INSTALLATION WOULD YOU LIKE TO LOG ONTO?
at this point there is a cursor there but it will only allow 1 letter or digit to be entered
I entered "1" and hit enter and it showed another
I entered NOTEPAD
and it came back with
THIS COMMAND IS NOT RECOGNIZED.....TYPE HELP FOR A LIST OF SUPPORTED COMMANDS
I looked at the list and notepad wasn't on it so i typed exit and that was it.

Select Recovery console
At the C windows prompt type:
This should give you the drive letter for the USB
Then type e:\frst64.exe and press Enter (where the drive letter is the one displayed by the map command)
