I just messed everything up so badly on my computer after I downloaded Ubuntu and deleted windows off the hard drive. Now I can only turn the computer on and come to the log on screen, then when I log on BAM I get a message that it has failed to do so.

I have a feeling that some files are corrupt and since I have not been ever to use Ubuntu on the computer, I decided it would be best to simply reinstall Ubuntu. But how?

The computer is an old one and I have found tutorials for reinstalling Ubuntu while the computer is working, but what if its not?

  • Use a computer that is working to prepare a disc to install on the machine that is now not working. – Elliott Frisch Aug 12 '14 at 2:26
  • Do what Elliott said and don't delete Windows so soon ever. – Abhimanyu Aug 12 '14 at 2:42
