    Oh, or do you mean that your computer does nothing when you enter the disk?

    No I haven't. This computer doesn't even have a disc drive so I would have to go out and buy an external disc drive.
    Thats not a problem. See, when I boot it up and press "ESC" and then select boot options it wont even load, the booting options. But I'll probly just go out and get an external disc drive today and just put in the windows 8 install disc and see if I can repair it.

    For HP Laptop:
    1. F10 will get you into BIOS
    2. ESC will display the BOOT Menu.


    Since you did not have the Windows 8 Installation disk and you probably don't have the Recovery disk. Let us try:

    1. Use your friend's PC
    2. You need to have a USB stick, 1GB or 2GB is fine and Format the USB stick using Fat32
    3. Download the Recovery Rar file from my Dropbox, it is 204MB in size:
      https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...3/Recovery.rar
    4. Use Winrar or Winzip or 7Zip to unzip the content to the USB stick.
    5. Plug the USB stick into the laptop
    6. Power on the Laptop, Keep tapping on the <ESC> key until you get the BOOT menu.
    7. Select the USB stick to BOOT from
    8. Once booted. Select US Keyboard->TroubleShooting->Advanced Options->Automatic Repair->Windows 8
    9. If Repair is successful, unplug the USB Stick and try to boot normally

    You have to plug in the USB stick first then power on your PC and tapping ESC key right away before Windows get loaded.
