Can anyone help me help my girlfriends parents computer!
Im not sure what some one done it has been running fine for the 2 years or so they have had it, but they asked me to look at it, and when you go to boot it up at the moment it says its found new hardware but cannot find the drivers. It doesnt say what the hardware, and says that you can choose to finish anyway, but when you do tey screen goes to the wallpaper but nothing else loads up? no desktop or anything. I booted in safe mode and could get in that way but still cannot find the prob.
I just wondered if anyone had any suggestions before i pop the recovery disks in and wipe it!!

It Win ME by the way.
