    Please help me out. I was playing Fallout: New Vegas when my computer shut down randomly and attempted to restart. It would flash the Toshiba screen and then display a white blinking underscore. Whenever I tapped a key, I'd hear a beep.

    I could access my BIOS and boot screen, but not my recovery partition.

    I went on my brother's laptop (the one I'm using right now) and burned the windows 7 recovery tools to a disc. I booted from that disc, and soon discovered that I could...

    >Access command prompt, therefore access my c: d: and x: drives.
    >Run memory diagnostics
    >Do a system restore
    >Run startup repair

    I can see my two restore points but I get an error when I attempt to restore from them about 5 minutes in.

    I can see all my files, but I can't access them.

    I'm in command prompt right now, and I have access to all my partitions.

    I don't know a lot about computers other than what can get me through the regular problem, so any help would be appreciated.

    >What do, and what other info do you need to help me?

    Thanks a million!
