Hi hereschrisss! Welcome to G2G!

Do you have your Windows 2000 CD? If you do, I want you to put it in and turn on your computer. When you are given the message press any key to boot from cd..., press a key and Windows Setup will start. At the first screen where you have to enter input, hit R to enter the Recovery Console. Then you will have to hit 1 to log into your windows installation and then just hit Enter for the Administrator password because it is normally blank unless you changed it. Once you are at the command prompt C:\WINDOWS I want you to type each of the following, hitting enter after each line:
  • attrib -r c:\boot.ini
  • attrib -s c:\boot.ini
  • attrib -h c:\boot.ini
  • del c:\boot.ini
  • bootcfg /rebuild
  • fixboot
Now type Exit and take your XP CD out. Your computer will reboot itself. Post back how things are going.

You will need to find your Windows 2000 cd in order to fix this problem. I suggest you look everywhere to find it. If you weren't given one when you got the computer, then I suggest you call the person who you got the computer from and get a cd from them.

Do you have a program, like Nero, that will allow you to burn iso's (CD images)?

Okay then. Download the Recovery Console ISO from HERE. Once it's downloaded, open up Nero Burning Rom, NOT STARTSMART. Once it is open, click on CANCEL in the window that pops up and then click on RECORDER-->BURN IMAGE. Locate the RC.ISO file you just downloaded and select OPEN. In the new window that appear, click on BURN and it will then ask you to insert a blank cd. Do so and the cd will be made. Then go into the recovery console as stated in my previous post, BUT THIS TIME DON'T DO THE BOOT.INI STEPS, instead type chkdsk /p /r and hit ENTER. This will check your hard drive and the files on it for errors and replace/repair any if need be. Once it's done, reboot your computer by typing EXIT and hitting ENTER. Let me know if you can log into windows now normally.
