    Will it start in safe mode.
    Tap F8 at startup.

    I can answer that for him - nope, no safe mode. I have been following another thread about this and got some directions. I have the discs for his computer and I'm going to try a repair install when I get home.

    Thank you for answering and when we get back online I'll let you know how it went.
    :)

    Good morning,
    a quick update on the beep.sys issue:

    A repair install didn't work so I had to reformat. I'm still going to try to figure out why and how this happened so I can be more prepared if it happens again. I'm happy to hear suggestions - if not, have a lovely rest of the day. :)
