Ok so heres the thing. I just bought an ipod but it wouldnt connect to my comp so after calling for tech support from futureshop i went to the watchful eye of the internet and following the advice of countless websites I tried to use msconfig and i clicked the load startup items, then went to start up and disabled the ituneshelper, then went to services and clicked hide all microsoft services and disabled everything cept the ipod and then i restarted the comp and bam! it was destined to the scrap heap.

I have tryed pushing f8 to get it into safe mode, inserting the windows cd. Nothing really helps because its frozen before the black bios screen where i can actually use safemode or activate my windows cd.

It seems to be stuck on the intel screen that starts up at the very begining. any help someone can give would be Greatly apreciated. Thank you

oh and im on another comp upstairs trying to fix the one downstairs

Make sure you unplug the iPod when you reboot. Some USB devices are known to cause this problem on some systems.

If you are able to boot you should re-enable all those services. Do you know whether to set them to Automatic or Manual ? Check your working computer for the proper settings. If in doubt, set it to Manual. Messenger should be set to Disabled for safety reasons.

Now you know not to believe everything you see on the web - even if it is repeated.
