Default Re: My pc wont start up

1st of all, i would when you get a chance. get a copy of Windows XP, it will be alot more stable than WINDOWS ME. second you can try this: when you log-in and it goes to just the backgroung from your desktop.

hit the CTRL + ALT+ DELETE keys on the keyboard, when the task manager window pops up, do this: click on file on the top left and scroll down to NEW TASK. once that you have that click the browse button, and go to the WINDOWS folder, and look for the windows explorer.exe file and click it, then hit the enter key, and it should bring up your desktop & all of the icons too.

Good luck.
