Hi Ruja. Good News! I am now communicating through my laptop! Before I saw your last post above I decided to try recovery again. This time it worked! It was much faster this time than the last time. I may still create a bootable USB to have for the future since my CD/DVD isn't working. That will actually be my next task, trying to fix the CD/DVD that suddenly just stopped working on me (shortly after I downloaded itunes via my iphone) AND trying to figure out whether I have a bad battery or just need to purchase another adapter so my laptop will charge and not have to stay plugged in all the time. I can't risk having another power outage and this happening to my laptop again. I'm nervous being on it now. Maybe I should create another forum for my other issues because you guys were so helpful.
I do have one other question... how do I put everything that I backed up back on my computer. Recovery actually gave me the option to back up everything on my laptop before recovery started, I figured why not just for the heck of it, and backup was successful. I see a file on the USB that I used for the backup that says BOOTEX... I am assuming I just open this?
I want to thank each and everyone of you again for all your help. I would still be stuck without your help, suggestions, and advice. Thank You!
