I tried this site's solution under Windwos Me that suggested booting into Dos and entering scanreg /restore. That was when the message about audio drivers cane up coupled with a BSOD.
Nothing has been added to this computer. No changes have been made. The situation occured after the computer was unplugged due to a storm in the area. The next boot after being plugged in was into safe mode. It has stayed there ever since.
Does anyone have any ideas?
