Howdy. I've got the same problem as described in this thread. I'd already run across the MS support doc they say to read. The problem is, I can't get beyond the blank screen in order to do any of the things they say to fix the problem. I (stupidly) don't have a boot/start up disk, and no matter what I try to do, everytime I start up my computer I get the error messages and then the blank screen. Someone please please tell me what to do.
