wow, this is the wierdest one I have run into, since, well, yesterday...
Do you have a windows 2000 CD?
When rebooting and trying safe mode, was command line an option?
How are you wirelessly connecting? A pcmia slot device? internal wireless?
Can you remove/disable this device?
I don't get it either. From all the research I have done something should have worked. I did try safe mode, all of them and a command line never came up. If it would have there were a few things that I had been told to do but I can't get the command line or anything no matter what I do. I have, at this moment, disconnected the wireless device, a belkin 802 connected through usb. I tried everything with it connected and have tried everything with the belkin wireless not connected, nothing. Sadly, my aunt, who hates having things laying around threw the cd away the first week her nephew got her the computer. I even went to a computer help website called computer hope and tried something they had suggested, make a cd and have the computer first go to the cdrom drive, which it will not do. I have a feeling this is a hopeless case. Angie
