This is not a matter of typing msconfig (I can't get to that stage) or hitting F8 (?) My windows xp lost all drivers. when I checked the hardware it was blank. As such I couldn't connect to email, copy/ burn folders to CD or DVD or attach any USB to copy folders. Always got "the driver is turned off or not available" I decided to re-install OS. But the computer would not allow that at all! The only way it would was for me to tick the Safe mode buttons in msconfig. I started to re-install the OS but now it's stuck rebooting. It gets as far as the start up (in safe mode) and then pops up this- Windows XP Setup cannot run under Safe Mode. Setup will restart now.
At this point my only option is to click OK! and around we go. I tried hitting F8 and it opens. I then tried clicking normal start up but no good- round I go again!
Can someone please tell me what the hell is going on and what I should do now!
