quick question



Friends box keeps rebooting when it should be about to start windows. It detects the hard drive/cdrom drive and all. He just finished windows update and then it started doing it. Not sure what exactly the problem could be.

boot sequence:

ram check/del for bios
dects drives
after that it just reboots when it should say "loading windows 2000"

Not sure if he should format the drive and/or it could be ram/powersupply gone bad.



nope =(

i reset bio and no luck. i just gonna format his box. He prolly did something stupid and/or his box is a piece of poop anyway (one of the pcusa mobo amd900duron with pc100 ram :p) so he gets what he paid for.. $250 he shouldn't expect the greatest box in the world

If it isn't even comming up to "Loading Windows" then it may be something else altogether. Try booting to something else, even a floppy or CD just to make sure it gets past the POST.


I may actually be insane.
If you need something to boot with (and have the recources available to download and burn it) then grab DamnSmallLinux from here: http://damnsmalllinux.org/
I often use it if my machine wont boot as a test and/or quick backup operating system.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
