    Great advice but my only other laptop is full right now.

    When in trouble I put in the recovery disc (I just made) and then find the program REFLECT on my desktop...
    You need to boot to the USB, meaning either go into your BIOS and change boot option to: boot to UEFI "Whatever the thumb drives name is", or use the one time boot option by: while turning the computer on hitting the ESC key repeatedly until a boot options list comes up and choosing the above. If the ESC key doesn't work try the other "F" keys.
    The recovery disk is a mini OS in it's own right so that you can boot into it when windows refuses to boot(BSOD) then just choose last good image from back up drive and let it do it's magic.

    What Ztruker meant is if you have an old or extra drive laying around somewhere, try imaging that with your created backup image(note it has to be same size or larger than the drive you have now).

    The nice thing with using macrium is, say you have an old 350GB drive installed right now, and want to upgrade to a newer 1TB drive, all you have to do is use macrium to reimage to it, saving the headache of a fresh installation, endless updates, searching for all your software and drivers.
