My problem is that my computer wont go to windows when I turn it on. Instead I get a stop error telling me if this is the first time Im seeing this message to restart the computer, and everytime I restart the computer it goes to the same blue error screen again. It goes on to tell me something about a problem with either some hardware that I installed or a software that I installed. To knowledge no new Hardware or software was installed but other were using the computer at the time so its possible someone else installed some kind of software from the net. I ran a Norton emergency virus scan and ofcourse nothing happened. I tryed to restore to the last good confiruration and not even that worker. THe computer has windows 2000 professional installed on it and we dont have a copy of it to reinstall in because someone else put that version on there for us (bacially a family computer). Is there anything I can do to bring my computer back to life other than buying windows and installing that? I cant afford to buy windows again and dont have any friends that I could get a copy from. Any help would be greatly appreiacated, but Im think im Sh%# out of luck.
