So you are not able to get into the BIOS yet? And you've tried pressing F1, F2 and DEL and nothing? If so, try F12 and even try hitting the space bar. Each computer has a BIOS, just some are more a pain to get into then others....

Not really much further I can tell you to do other then to do what I originally told you to do in post #3. Try making the regcopy1.txt file like it says on a working computer, putting it on a floppy drive and then once in the Recovery Console typing batch regcopy1.txt.

I am still shuting down after about 5 minutes. not enough time to type in the dos commands. I also cannot find a cpu temp in bios.

How can I copy the commands using a batch file if I cannot acess anything on the computer except the recovery mode? I need the cd to boot the computer and it is a laptop so I don;t have a floppy.

Thanks

Nothing else you can really do then. Looks like you have a severe hardware problem and on that old of a machine it isn't worth paying the money to fix it. You can try getting a laptop coolor to see if you can cool the machine down, but other then that nothing else can be done with a laptop, hence why I don't like them. Not only can you not upgrade them (memory upgrades are not considered upgrades in my book), but if you have a problem with them you're outta luck if it's not under warranty because the parts for them are extremely expensive and cost even more to have it put it.

I had the same problem when i installed SP2 on my labtop, which had windows XP home addition, which was windows XP. The problem was that whenever the comp tries to log into windows a blue screen comes up saying that windows server is missing, hence i had no option but to reinstall windows.

Attched a usb floppy. To batch the commands I assume I have to do this
Change the drive from c: to a:

then

A:
A:batch regcopy1.txt

When I do that it says some of the files are being copied and some are not found

I type exit and restart the same original error is comming up.


oh please don't let me have to resort to best buy.
