If you reinstall the OS, you will lose everything - all photos, documents, programs, or updates that have been installed since it was new. If that's OK, start the system & immediately tap the F11 key to launch the recovery software, then follow the instructions. Make sure you're using the AC power adapter & that you have no external devices connected.

It all depends on whether you have a software or hardware fault. If the hard disk has failed, for example, then you won't be able to install the operating system.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
