    do you think that I could use that link you provided earlier to burn a recovery disk onto a CD or would I still need to access the BIOS to have it boot from CD in order for that to work

    Burning a CD might be a good thing to try. Some computers arent set up from the factory to boot to a USB drive before a CD drive or HDD, but most come set to look at the CD drive first thing, then the HDD. Try making a CD and putting it in the drive, then rebooting the computer to see if it boots from the CD. If that doesnt work, then I would say you have some sort of hardware issue.
