    You should be able to get the recovery options via the way you already did.
    The recovery is on another partition then the boot and windows files.

    No I am not able to get to it as before. After I did the command you said to do it either changed it or that thing you talked about where it locks you out because the screens now are different. Says it has been booted too much and hasn't been able to fix and says you need to use a recovery disc. I try pressing enter for it to go thru the boot process then just ends at an error bad system config info. I then rebooted and tried what it says below "press enter to try and boot" says press f8 for additional options. I press f8 then select f6 to boot into safe mode with command prompt it doesn't get there and instead I am presented with the bad system config info error again. I do not have a recovery disc for windows. I do have linux recovery discs tho. I need to back up my data soon because I have bad sectors according to gparted in linux. I think I might just backup my files and then move to GNU/Linux because I am unable to boot my windows installation disc but ubuntu installation dvd works. I got the windows installation disc from microsoft and the burner software said it burnt it successfully. I don't know. Well I found replacements for the apps I use in windows on linux that and the fact that all my drives in ntfs can be safely accessed and written to now in linux so another reason to move on. But I will try and fix my windows computer because others will benefit from this forum from a solved solution. What should I do now?

    In ubuntu, download MemTest86+

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Cool I know memtest86 I've used it before. We would use it at this volunteer run non profit freegeek to check to see if they ram is okay and if it passes we will reuse it when we refurbish a computer or laptop.

    I fan on my laptop recently broke I think. Could this be why? Kind of paranoid to replace it because it is a complicated repair lot more steps than upgrading hard drive ram or wifi card. I have a replacement fan. Is it okay to not use the one that came with the laptop? I don't think I was able to find one by that manufacture. The bad sectors happened after I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 so not sure what is the cause. Even tho I know how to recycle computers I don't know everything. lol

    A broken fan causes cooling issues, cooling issues causes hardware damage if the fan has not been replaced before using the pc again.
    It is better to use a fan that works and later find out there might be some issues with the fan then keeping a broken fan.

    The issues with the new fan might have more chance to solve then finding out that a lot of hardware needs to be replaced due to the broken fan.

    Since you mentioned the broken fan problem, you might want to test your hardware as far as possible.
