    did you reinstall over the top totally or did you do the Windows 2000 repair? (Not the first repair option - but when setup scans for previous Windows installations - it comes up with the existing installation as an option and gives you some more options to continue, repair or exit??)

    I changed a motherboard and cpu in a pc with Win2k, it wouldnt boot - just BSODed on boot - I did the repair thing and it worked fine then

    have you changed any hardware or installed anything at all since the last time it worked?

    Does using "last known good configuration" work ok?

    ugh :/

    aye, we got POS systems in my work too... cept these run Win98 for compatibility with the Epson POS printers - Win2k/XP drivers cause it to print inconsistantly (might work one time, next time it may not etc)

    I'm kinda out on ideas now then :/

    Might it be possible to get the info onto another computer which needs keeping and then do a reinstall?
