Sorry about the dramatic title, but this damn thing is getting annoying.
I took your advice, and I got my XP disk.
I took my boot thingy too, just to see if it would work (If you don't know what i'm talking about here
is my first thread) and I went to my neigbor's house.
It won't start up.
It is a Dell Optiplex GX60, and the loading screen (before the OS starts, with the crappy graphics, dell logo, and white status bar) gets to the end, and then stops.
I tinkered with it, and now it says something like (BEEP) "This PC got stuck the last time it booted up at checkpoint [HDsk]".
Now, it won't do ANYTHING.
I looked on Dell.com, and i will keep looking, but help is always appreiciated!
