Hiya

Did you do as suggested here:

http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=327667

I see you said its on a school network, so not sure how much you'll be able to do. As you were using it a few days ago, when the other thread was posted, can you try a restore:

Boot to DOS. If you can get there, pop in a floppy (when turned off) so that it gets to the A prompt. Then, type

cd: c:\

Then, type

scanreg/restore

and pick a date prior to this problem. Don't pick the oldest date.

Regards

eddie
