  • Question

  • My pc will not boot.  Running windows 7.  I added photoshop elements 11 and premiere elements 11 software from disc 2 days ago.  This premiere version was the last program i ran before shutting down when tried to start pc next dy will not boot.  Get a message that flashes up on blue screen for brief sec. saying "the specified request is not a valid operation for the target device".  Also notice on the edit boot options screen last line says /NO EXECUTE=OPTIN.  Have tried starting in alltypes of safe mode with no luck.  Talked with Gateway they say totally corrupted because they can't access remotely. ???
