Had one of the dreaded blue screen failures.
Have tried to take myself through the steps in the tutorial (succeeded in persuading my machine to boot from CD with recovery disc) only to find my system hanging on LICENCE AGREEMENT F8 = I AGREE: it allows me to type PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN, just not F8. When I press ESC it suggests that something is wrong with my windows installation and asks if there a floppy disc in the A drive. Could this be an A drive problem? I haven't used a floppy disc for about 10 years!
So I resorted to the recovery consule... pressed R. Got through to C:\WINDOWS> and selected 1. Opted for chkdsk /r - and it struggled slowly up to 74% completed, only to go back down to 50%. Still running now but I fear a loop...
Am rather at my wits' end!
All support gratefully appreciated. Thanks so much!
