Changed mouse - Winxp will not start-

  swapper 15:49 22 Jun 2005

Like a fool I changed my PS2 mouse while winXP was switched on.

The mouse froze on screen, I could do nothing but seitch off.
On restart the windows screen starts to load, I then get a flash of blue screen and the PC switches off and starts again.

It will not start in Safe Mode, or with the DOS curser, but keeps restarting.

Any advice please?

I don't think changing the mouse with the computer switched on should cause this much of a problem. Can you boot to the Windows CD and do a repair from that?

god! that was quick Gongoozler!

I'm not 100% sure how to do this?
