Try booting with the F8 key or F12 key and see what your options are.
You should have a repair option or the option to use the "last known good
I've never used Windows Marketplace. You may have the option to
redownload your OS onto a CD or DVD. I really don't know. Personally, I
refuse to buy a computer from a vendor that ships the computer without an
installation disk or recovery disk, because you can always use the disk to
reinstall the original OS.
Have a nice day.
