    Help! - I installed SP2, and now have a computer that won't boot. First problem was a USB powered scanner crashing it..Unable to start it in safe mode, it rebooted constantly during boot up process. Now having tried to re-install Windows XP, it just boots to a black screen.

    I have a dual boot system and can boot to the second system, but that now crashes when I plug the USB modem, despite reinstalling drivers. I 've only managed to get on the net by digging out an old computer.

    I've tried Recovery console getting two choices 1: C:windows or 2:G:windows
    Entering 1 does nothing , neither does any other key! :confused:

    I think I got further once but was asked for a supervisor /administrator password yet have no passwords set on my computer according to info in 'setup'!.

    Ideas, anyone?

    tech spec: athlon xp2600, Asrock m'board, sagem b'band usb modem
