Computer Just Wont Start Up! Please HELP!

  Rickyv 10:22 25 Sep 2005

I installed windows SP2 yesterday and when the computer restarted it keeps coming up with a blue screen. It says that the bios might be out of date, software/hardware may have caused a problem etc. I tried going into safe mode but it comes up with another blue screen that says a file is missing, 'windowssrv'. I also pressed f10 and it goes into a restore and repair menu from Mesh (as my pc is a mesh). But i cant restore it and it would let me repair windows files. Also ive tried using the mesh recovery cd but when its trying to install windows it says it cant find my sata harddrive. PLEASE HELP ME. Thanks in advance.
