Hello,

One of my desktops isn't working at all, a friend used it and I don't know what he did. But there are NO Icons and NO start up menu when you start normally, and when I tried to go in through Safe Mode to do a system restore a blue screen came up that says windows wont let me start up to help save my stuff and to check for viruses or recent added hardware. But I cant even get into the computer. I would love to System restore and get this whole thing fixed. Can you Help Me? I have Window XP on a Dell desktop.

Hi Austan,
Give your patience a go, and see if after a long wait, it starts...!

Further you might like to wait on Kioskea and find a good reply, or then consult it on MS Forum @ http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ under System Repair and Recovery forum title.
If nothing helps, you might have to opt for a boot-able disc of your OS and then going on to Recover your OS.

Wishing your PC a happy and speedy recovery,
