In that case it should have an OEM recovery partition.
This should work: system recovery options.

In the System Recovery Options menu, does the "Command Prompt" option work?

If it does, at the prompt type rstrui.exe then hit enter.

Hopefully that will launch System Restore and you will be able to select a Restore Point that was created before this problem started.

I had that, and then i tried doing a system Restore, the first few times i tried it said completeld and when i restarted, it just went back to the System Recovery Options again.
But this time when i choose the earliest point to recover it gave me this
System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.
Details:
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x800700b7)

You can try system Restore again and choose a different restore point. If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method. for more information, see What is Recovery?
So im going to run system restore again and see what pops up this time!

EDIT: it showed the same exact thing. this time when i pressed recovery, i pressed the latest date, (which was 5/27) and it gave me a different "error code"

Details:
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80000ffff)

Edit2:
I used system restore again, using the first restore point, giving the information:

Details:
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x800700b7)

Which was the exact one as the first one

I used that just now and it told me that it was completed, and when i restarted the computer once again, it shows the System Recovery Options again!

Fai, your computer should have a recovery partition that will allow you to restore the computer to the factory default. If you tell me the model of the computer, I can find how to do that (it is usually done by pressing F10 while the computer reboots).

Before doing that you can use these instructions to backup any important files.

SystemRescueCd
For the System Rescue CD, i dont really get what is that and what it does, how to use it.
Im guessing saying that it is a USB or a Disc that when you download a certain file, you activate it on the computer that is having trouble, and it creates a backup for all the files on that computer, used before you completely reboot your computer?.
Sorry i am really new at everything, im trying to learn but its still hard :P.

I think you have the basic concept. The System Rescue CD is a disk that you can use to boot your computer without using the Windows Operating System that is installed. Once booted, you can access all of the files on the hard drive and copy them to DVDs, USB flash drives, etc.

I know this sounds daunting, but the documentation will walk you through the process of creating the Rescue disk and backing up your files.

After you have done that, remove the Rescue Disk, reboot your computer and press F10 repeatedly until you see " Loading recovery tools please wait". From there you should be able to restore your hard drive to the factory image.

After you restore the drive, install an AV, create System Recovery Disks, and update Windows.

I am currently still trying to find out more information on how to use it while downloading the systemrescuecd. during that time, ive been just constantly trying to use system restore, this time it was completed saying:

System Restore completed successfully. The system has been restored to 5/202011 4:33:34AM. Your documents have not been affected. Click Restart button to restart the computer.

This wasnt the first time that popped that up, i pressed restart and it went back to the same Startup Repair menus. and it says startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. its just basically i could not start up window.
