Hope you can help, but I'm not techie so I might not understand anyway!
I scanned my PC's hard drive last night as it was running a bit slow on the internet and that's one of the few things I know how to do
As it finished scanning a message came up saying "Not enough space on the disk for ******* (the asterisks are for something techie which I didn't get). There is loads of space on my hard disk, it's 40 gb and less than 5 gb is used.
Then it froze and when I tried to re-start it, I just got the Windows first screen followed by a black screen which says "Boot.ini invalid". There was also a blue screen with white writing on but it comes and goes so quickly I can't read it.
It won't start in safe mode or Last Known good configuration or anything else on the menu.
I don't have a Windows CD either. I have a recovery type disk but it doesn't work after the mother board was changed two years ago. I'm typing this on my Husband's PC. This doesn't have a Windows CD either, it just has the manufacturers disk, and the OS is XP Media anyway, my PC is Home edition.
Am I a hopeless case?
