Uhh, from the limited information you provided, it sounds like your boot configuration is messed up. You may need a new hard drive. Can you be more explicit. It is difficult to help with such little information.
Actually the battery was down and laptop switch off.
i left it to charge and now when the switch it on, i am getting the "Press the Esc key for startup menu".
Please help. i have to submit my work my end of this month.
Thank you in advance
