I wouldn't bother with Linux, its not worth you learning a whole new system. Its good for some IT server guys, but I find windows better. (maybe less stable)

 

If you don't fancy paying for genuine windows, you can download this and burn it to DVD, then put the DVD in startup and reinstall windows or try to upgrade it.

try this

 

go into the BIOS (F2 on startup)

 

enable d2d

 

restart...press alt + F10

 

it will take you to a recovery screen....just follow the prompts and you'll get your OS back

It could be any number of things. Could be a hard disk problem that is causing windows to dissapear, or some critical files deleted, or a problem with the boot sector ...etc.

 

I think that it will be better if you take the laptop to a shop and pay someone to work on it. If it has vista, then you better restore that instead of installing a pirate version of windows.

 

Many computers have recovery partitions that are installed by the manufacturer for restoration and provide you with shortcuts to start that recovery program to restore system to factory settings. Take the laptop to an authorised repair center.

 

 

With regards to Linux, I like and use linux. However, it is not very easy to configure. I am an IT professional and used Ubuntu from version 5 to the current version 10.04. It is not my main OS and I still use windows most of the time. I would not recommend Linux to a newbie. I do not know your skill level in computers, but i am guessing that you are not an advanced user.

Dont install Linux unless ur up to it.

 

Your computer may be looking to start up from a CD rather than booting up normally??. It may be a case of changing your bios settings. Difficult to say from here i am afraid.

 

May be better to ask someone on the ground. WOuld also ask them to install Windows 7 if your PC is up to it.

 

Good luck.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
