    I'm trying to tell you totally power off your computer... turn it off..

    1. turn off comptuer

    2. then turn on computer and when you see the windows is loading little circles circling.. shown in the picture above posts.. then force pull the plug or however to turn your computer off.. do this 3 times or until it shows a menu for you to start recovery mode!

    make sense??

    while turning on the computer, have you pressed f8 a million times while loading?

    then try Shift +f8.... while loading..

    also you can type this into that command prompt I told you about earlier..
