As it's a Dell I don't know what kind of recovery discs you have to try a repair. You could try here for a repair disc; click here

tried that, very good tool but would not let me do a fulls system restore or restore to factory condition. tried the DELL recovery console and it did not find the recovery partition even though i could see it. the daughter is going to take back to pc world where she go it.
will tick as resolved
