Hi, I just downloaded a new driver for a graphics card in order to play an online game, and during installation recieved a warning that it was not certified by Microsoft. Trusting the good folks at Nvidia I proceeded, which now looks to have been a mistake.
When it was installed I restarted my computer as prompted, and when startup had just about finished, I got a prompt to Register this copy of Windows, as I had when I first turned on the computer a little over a year ago.
Okay, I figured, the driver screwed with Windows and I need to re-register. No sweat. However, the computer was unable to find an internet connection on my computer, so I needed to do it over the phone. After the tedious process of telling the machine the code, it was rejected. I tried again in case I had said a wrong number, same result.
So now I am faced with this dilema: My computer, although entirely intact(I conclude this based on the fact that I can see both my username on startup and my own background when it semi-logs in trying to register), thinks it is not registered with Microsoft. The registration code does not work, (I presume because I used it already when I first activated the computer), so I cannot log in. I am unable to run DOS or safemode or anything at all. That computer was the host of my home network so sparing internet access none of my other computers have that benefit anymore. To top it all off, I never backed up any of the files on that computer.
So I pose this question: What do I do?
