i didnt know where to put this but i have windows 2k on my laptop and as soon as i log in it begins to shut down right away. i have it pluged in so it cant be the battery, because i dont have one that works. any way to get it to stop shuting down without having to re-install it? (it took me all day yesterday to update the thing)

If I understand correctly your battery does not work, so do you have it in the machine? If so try removing it and see if it will boot for you.
