f8 should give you advanced boot options!
Advanced Boot Options

what options did you select??? Tel me more details.
are you telling me you performed a recovery to factory default settings?

What kind of recovery are you donig now? Please be more specific. The black screen issue isn't there anymore because you are recovering now. Hopefully it doesn't come back

When i pressed F8 that screen never came up, all it did was boot up and launch startup repair. Yeah i did a recovery to factory settings, well the state i bought it in. Even though i inserted my recovery disc i'm pretty sure it used the recovery partition but the first time i tried that nothing happened, the command window was blank. Well its up and running now so thankyou for helping me out Kaktussoft.
