Boy this keeps gettting more and more complicated...it must be frustrating
The keyboard error....is this a laptop or desktop. Keyboard errors often result of something stuck in the keys....does it say anythign about press f1 to continue (or something like that)
the file you downloaded is an ISO image...You don't actually copy them to a cd, because they are not meant to be used as files--instead, they are DISK IMAGES.
You have to copy them a special way
I;'m going to hope you are presently using an XP machine
If you do not know how to burn an ISO image (don't feel bad, most people do not), then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it. It is the easiest way to burn an ISO image to a CD
make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows.
Open MY COMPUTER, choose HELP > ABOUT. Note the service pack and get the appropriate version of the iso burner power toy http://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm
After installation, reboot, then right click the dban-1.0.6...iso file you downloaded and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.
Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.
The program should start automatically
I am very curious about the keyboard error though--is that new?
