Its a home based operation if that makes any difference.
Oh...its a non for profit business also.
That's a good enough situation for me. If any of the Mods say it's against the TOS, then they can close this thread. Until then, I'll help.
She gets a screen that gives an error message that reads ' disk error" on it. Sounds like a hard drive issue?
Yes it does sound like a hard drive issue. What was the last thing you (or her) did on it before this happened?
Do you have an XP CD? If so, try this:
Insert the XP Installation CD and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.
When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R
. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password (if you have not set this, press "Enter"). At the system prompt, type chkdsk /r
and press "Enter".
This should check your hard drive for problems, if it even shows up. Let me know how it goes.
