Try running System Restore to before things went pear shaped.

The original restore disk should have the OS embedded into it. Just do that and you'll get it all back again.

You may need to reinstall AOL though, sadly.

Hve tried system restore I could only go back one week and this didn't work.I have two IBM Product Recovery CD'S 1&2 have put them on closed down restarted the computer again but nothing happens,am I doing something wrong I have tried several times.

Is there a recovery floppy as well that "launches" the CDs.

Please note that running recovery CDs will lose all your documents.

  Bentheika 23:07 25 Feb 2005

Yes I have a floppy disc but I have never tried this together,do you put them all on together close down then start up again,I'm a beginner. Thankyou

Put the floppy in the drive then restart. You should then be prompted to insetrt the CDs as required.

You do realise that you will lose all your documents, e-mails and so on, don't you?

Doing this will give you the equivalent of a factory-fresh PC.

I have no documents on the computer and AOL saves my emails,Thankyou very much I will try this in the morning I will let you know how I get on.

Put CD in the CD rom drive

place floppy in the floppy drive

Restart the computer.

It should now start the restore procedure.
