Recently my old computer messed up, it will not boot at all
When I try after 2 screens it goes to:
"A disk read error occured
Press Cntrl+Alt+Del to restart"
...doing this will do the same thing, causing a loop
I tried running windows in safe mode, but it does not allow me to
I tried putting in the windows disk in both my DVD/CD drives and it just says: "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration..." and I left it for 2 hours and came back and the Windows setup blue screen still didn't come up, I figured it wouldn't work so I didn't bother waiting more :S
I tried making the 6 floppy disks and usign them, the Windows Setup blue screen comes up, then when its time to insert the second disk, I put it in and it says:
"File \ntkrnlmp.exe coult not be loaded.
The error code is 4.
Setup cannot continue. Press and key to exit."
I had tried these methods about 4 times now
Thats about all I figured I should meantion, I there is anything I need to specify, tell me and I will do straight away
But bear in mind that I am a n00b when it comes to computers, sure I'm over all pretty good with them, but not when it comes to things like this... so chances are I will not understand a word your saying, and if you could dumb it down for me that would be great
