Answer to: Why won't my computer boot?Your computer may be unable to boot due to an error with its hard drive. To resolve this issue, you will need to buy a Windows rescue DVD for the version of Windows that you have on your computer. You can find inexpensive Windows DVDs at Walmart or on Amazon or other retail websites. Insert the DVD into your computer, start it, and follow the DVD’s onscreen instructions. If your computer fails to boot after you have run the DVD, or if your computer will not boot after insertion of the DVD, then you may need to replace your hard drive.
