My Asus Essentio CM5675 with Windows 7 suddenly displays

I just purchased this desktop 2 months ago. I bought it from bestbuy. It did not come with any Windows 7 discs. I downloaded a recovery disk, but it does not Reformat the computer. HELP PLEASE?!

Answer
I have little experience in the area of boot repair. The usual process goes like this:
1. Set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the primary boot device.
2. Boot with a Windows Repair CD.
3. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …" appears.
4. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.
5. Select an Operating System, then click Next. You are now in Repair Mode.
6. Click Repair your computer.
7. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.
8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.
9. When finished, remove the CD before rebooting the system.
Instead using a Windows Repair CD in Step 2, you can use your Windows 7 Installation DVD. The steps are similar to the ones above.
