    As for getting to a disc to download the windows 8 to it might be a little hard. I'll try that too though seeing how I have no other options.

    I would like the directory link to the recovery.exe for windows 8 though I wanna try something else too.
    Not sure what your referring to, there is no recovery.exe as far as im aware of ...if there is anything it will be in system32 ....if you mean the recovery partition then you need to be able to search and list volumes and partitions as it doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it by default ....if I was actually there I could sort it out no probs ...for downloading windows 8 or 8.1 go here My Digital Life Forums , ask for help there too.

    Well like, C:\"Folder"\"Specific folder"\"Program".exe < That kind of directory to an application.
    But like all the pictures and whatnot you see before hand is all you're gonna have access to anyways. I'm currently using a windows 7 right now.

    Do you have a usb stick ? ....I can create a link to the recovery files .... format the usb stick to fat32 ...make sure its at least 1GB, copy the files straight to the usb stick ....don't put them in a folder ....then try and boot your laptop to recovery ...not saying it will work though ...you might need the usb formatted to be bootable ...had a look at mind cant tell. Let me know if you have a usb and ill link the files so you can download them.

    Also note that my pc is 64bit ....most laptops are 32bit ....have no idea if the files are different but heres the link https://www.dropbox.com/s/j0904gn83cp5hd2/RECOVERY.zip ....extract the files ...and add the files in folder to the usb ...don't add the folder ...the files need to be on the root of the usb ....not in any folder

    Have you considered buying recovery disks from the manufacturer ?

    What is the specific make & model of computer that you have ?

    I got recovery disks from Gateway for about $20 US.

    They were well worth the money.

    I'm not gonna buy crap... I only had this laptop for 2 months and the only thing I downloaded was IMVU and Steam. Then it started acting dumb after 2 weeks. I had a windows 7 laptop for 9 years and it died from the motherboard. I refuse to pay for something I didn't do.
    I might get a friend to give me a disc for windows 8 which I'll try that see what happens. But the option to buy anything I'm not gonna do because I just got this laptop and it all of a sudden starts lagging and acting up.

    So I'm going to try and contact the manufacturer for more details and try to get a windows 8 disc. I don't have the money to even send it if they make me pay for that.
    This is the same thing that happened to my first laptop, a week after I got it, it erased all the booting system files. So this isn't the first time this happened luckily I was able to recover it from the system settings startup.

    My windows 8 doesn't have that option which pisses me off.

    This is probably what I'm going to have to do. Is basically get a replacement. Same thing happened to me, I never got any keys for windows 8 and no discs for the recovery portion of the system. I also can not recover it because it wont boot through.
    I called windows about this problem before posting for help on the forums and they wanted the "key" that was suppose to be used when I started up the system. I never got that key and I can't log into my system to see what it is.
    So I'm HOPING to God I don't need the key to send the laptop in to get it fixed.

    Since you did manage to send it in tho I might have a chance with that so that helped out.

    Hi

    Since your laptop is a Dell one, first execute the built in self test and make sure the hardware is fine. To do that, press F12 during power on and choose Diagnostics. If the test came clean, download and burn "Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise Evaluation" from the below link.

    Download Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation

    Then boot from the DVD and execute "Automatic repair" function.
