So I got a laptop a year ago for my birthday with Windows 8 installed on it. [you might recognize this post. I'm ExecutedNebula. I made a new account because I forgot my password.] It was a beautiful HP Pavillion and very good price. I had the "usual" files: Google Chrome, Steam games, and various demos for programs like Fruity Loops and Vegas Pro. And Malwarebytes declared no viruses so it wasn't a virus that caused this problem. I THINK (remember, I think, I'm not completely 100% sure. This happened a while ago.) that I left it on all night by accident and it overheated. I turned it on the next morning and it had indeed crashed sometime while I was sleeping, and it sent me to some "Options" menu. I couldn't get back to my desktop by trying to start up normally because something was wrong with it. I tried to reset my account, and everything was going well, until it glitched out and and I had a black screen with an error message saying "Please take out and re-insert your install disk." I didn't have an install disk, and after that everytime I started the laptop, it just sent me to a black screen. So, I had no computer. I would just take it back to the Best Buy I bought it at and have them fix it, but the laptop is WAY past warranty now, and I don't have the money to get it fixed. So yeah, I need help. I'm at my friend's house on his PC typing this, so answer soon because I'm leaving in a few hours. Also, I would get a new laptop, but like I said, I don't have the money. So, because this is becoming a wall of text, please help! I just want a working laptop at this point!
