When I start my computer I cant get passed the windows screen. It's tries to load and
I tried booting into safe mode, but it stops again in the same place.
I tried to put my windows cd in to recover the console, but it goes to a black screen has
me press any key, and once i do that it goes to the windows startup screen again. NOT the
setup screen so that I can reinstall my windows.
I tried to change my boot sequence so that the CD rom would be 1st and then restarted to
put in boot disk.This did nothing, I had the same problem. It's as if my cd rom isnt
reading the disk at all. I can hear it , but nothing occurs, it's like the disk just stays
I have not changed or updated any hardware. The last thing I did before I did a normal
restart was update windows to Service pack 2, then restarted like it asked me to.
The bootdisk works, I tried it on my friends computer. butI find it strange that I cant
even get into safe mode.
I also tried to press F8 and went to last known good configuration , but it did
nothing...literally nothing happened.
Is there a way to access the dos prompt from the F2 setup menu?
I am at a loss as to what to do, I 'd appreciate any advice or help!
