Posted 31 December 2006 - 11:25 PM
UPDATE: we shut the laptop off and turned it back on and it booted up. It is moving very slow.

Where do we stand when starting the machine now? Does it still halt at the black screen with the blinking cursor? This one sounds a bit like a corrupt file system or even a flaky partition.
Let me know if you are able to boot to Windows so I know how to proceed.

I have sent the error report and am going to begin updating Win XP. My concern is there is more wrong than the SP2. We just want to be able to get this up and running and usable (doesn't everyone I know.) My hubby is leaving Wed. for California and and would like to have functionality restored at least to the point we were at before he downloaded SP2 and all these problems began.
Please let me know if there are things I should check, I am going to begin with Keith's post #43 and run windows updates and the like.

Have you got all the product keys, serial numbers for any programmes you want to install, along with the software CD's or download links

What is the timeframe involved? Is it more time consuming than what I've been doing (ie downloading updates 5 at a time, reboot, repeat)?
