Please be kind to this lady! I have searched the internet and tried different things for over 8 1/2 hours.
I think I messed my PS up last night messing with a reg clean. Turned it on this morning and all I get is a blue login screen. I have never set a password so nothing works.
Per the internet (currently using daughters laptop) tried F8 to get into safe mode .. it shows I'm in safe mode but goes back to blue log in screen , no desktop icons, no start button. So read some more on internet put in windows XP media center reinstallation cd from Dell. I believe it was repair I picked and it took an 1 hour plus said, repaired a couple files. Also typed in chkdsk /r but not sure which order I did the last two.
I've tried Safe Mode
Safe mode with command prompt
Something about previous good
nothing is working! I'm either going to start crying, have a panic attack or crack out the Vodka.
I know i should take it to the local PC repair place ... but hubby has been off work for 7 months and $$ are extremely tight. I need my PC back for my website and ebay sales.
Can anyone suggest anything else I can try? Sinc Debra
