I was doing a system restore because of some problems that had recently developed that I couldn't fix otherwise and my computer shut down before it was completed. Now when I turn it on, the screen is black and it doesn't read any boot-able disks/USB's. I was running vista prior to this, and I don't care a whole lot about any of the data I've lost. I just need a working laptop for school and I have no money. I was on another forum dedicated to computer hacking and the like, and they all told me to just make a linux livecd and then save my stuff and re-install windows after. But as I said, I can't get the cd/USB to work (on that computer). It works fine on my parents' desktop. Does anyone here have any ideas?
