It then gives me the options of starting in, Safe mode,Safe mode with Networking or with Command Prompt Last known good config or start windows normally. Iíve tried all of these but the computer then just loops back to the same screen.
Even if I try F8 and go to the command prompt it loops back to the same screen.
The software and the codes are the ones that came with the computer back when I got it about 4 years ago.
I've got the whole system backed up on an external HD so don't mind formatting and starting from scratch if I have to but I cant even get into command prompt to type format c, Any ideas on what I can do would be appreciated.
NB the Machine is a Dell system 8400
