    I recently turned my computer off, when i went back to turn it on, it will not load up. A black screen appears saying a file is missing, use windows recovery disk and press R to fix. As i never got a windows revoery disk, i was wondering if anyone could help me because im getting worried that my computer will not work again. Please could anyone help.

    Thanks in advance

    Does it tell you what file is missing? You should be able to get it from somewhere is it does.

    What do you have for recovery?

    Do you have a windows disk or know someone with the same version of windows you could borrow?

    You can attempt to repair this files by starting Windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.'
