    If all else fails, get a Linux CD and boot from it. Then if you are lucky you can use it to access files using weird commands

    It's time to try the restore function. If you have a search bar on the bottom of the screen type that word in to bring up the file. Set the restore option to yesterday. Should take about 15 minutes or so to go through its paces.

    I know nothing about Linux, or I would switch.. talk to Lynx, he's good with Linux.

    Oh, I'm sorry! Thought that your computer was able to boot up. By the way, do you have anything in your CD Rom? If you do, then remove it. That would be another reason for getting a reboot message. Eject whatever is in your CD Rom out and then try rebooting again.
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

    "Good solution!"



    It sounds like the partition table or a / the boot sector of the hard drive may have been corrupted.

    It's years and years since I got mine, can't remember where I ordered it. You can download it to a CD using another computer and burn it to a cd.

    How old does a computer have to be before it's considered obsolete?

    Well... the hardware stays more or less the same (unless you need fancy video cards or very much processing power),
    so it depends mostly on the software I think. My computers tend to die after five years
