Hi - check the battery; if the comp works with an adapter then there is your culprit - Amos.
Thanks for the suggestion but that didn't solve the problem.
I tried pulling the battery out of the system and plugging in the AC adapter but got the same results. This system is generally used with the AC adapter.
In that case it may be a hardware problem. Unless someone else here takes up the cudgel, you might have to take it to a repair shop. Sorry - Amos.
The Safe Mode failure is troubling.
It points to issues either with the OS or the hardware.
Were there any warning signs?
Repair can mean using the restore CDs but first consider saving the files...
No warning signs that I know of...
The owner says that she shuts down properly every evening but then this morning when she went to power up this happened. I have since tried several things all with the same results. Is there any way that I might be able to tell if the hard drive has gone belly up?
...also, any recommendations for trying to repair Windows?
As to the hard disk...
I use the hard disk maker's tests to figure that out.
As to repairing the OS, on laptops that come with restore CDs may or may not offer a repair OS feature. I have to boot the restore CD and see what's offered.
