InlandAZ, I do not get a prompt to start my disc.
It sounds like you need to adjust the settings in your BIOS to boot from the CD drive instead of the hard drive. This is what is described in this part of Inland's description:
2. Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
If you're not prompted to boot from the CD you need to change the boot order in the BIOS, make sure the optical drive is 1st in the list. Most PC's display a message that indicates which keys to press to enter the BIOS setup. They're all different, so I can't help you there.
Once you've booted off the CD, you should be able to run a chkdsk /R or chkdsk /F to repair broken files. I'm guessing the computer was writing something back to the hard drive when you turned off the power, which resulted in corrupt files. A chkdsk /R or chkdsk /F may be adequate. The procedure Inland described will repair worse damage.
Note that if you don't have a true Windows disc, but instead have some "restore-type" disc that has no troubleshooting utilities and can only restore the computer to factor defaults, you won't be able to do the troubleshooting.
