In reply to: Thanks have deleted more than just the registry files.
Has your son been playing with the bios as well? If you have USB and/or PS2 keyboard or mouse this will be affected.
You could also try a standard keyboard.

Dumping Memory

If you get a blue screen that says ''Dumping Physical Memory'' you can do any of the following:

1. Shut off until it cools down (sounds funny, but try it). Then ''fix'' from XP disk.


2. If you have two hard drives -- switch the Primary hd to secondary and reformat.


3. Toss cpu in file 13 and start over with a new cpu.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
