    Can only open in Safe Mode (and DOS).
    Tried to format in dos with format c: but c drive not recognized.
    Cannot access CDRom. Both IDE controllers have a red x through the icon.
    I can get to windows95 in safe mode, but of course, cannot do much from there. Tried /restore. Scanned disk etc. No problems identified.
    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Can you give a little more background on the problem....why can't you start in normal mode? Error messages?

    Thanks for your response.
    In normal mode I get "Windows Protection Error. You need to Restart your computer" After ctrl-alt-del the cycle continues.

    However now doing formattting and will reload everything.
    My fingers are crossed.
