Hi, I wonder if any one can help me. We recently had a bad thunder storm which evidently 'burnt out' my broadband modem (now replaced) shortly afterwards my PC (windows 2000) gave up the ghost (blue screen etc). Ive since mangaged to get it functioning of sorts in safe mode, but I'm not sure what to do from here. Can anyone help please?
Also can you confirm that if I burn my photographs/documents to disc and everytime I open that disc do they copy back onto my hard drive (I'm rapidly running out of HD space)
Sounds like your MOBO is damaged,did you have a surge protector?? not sure what you mean functioning of sorts!! You could try a full OS reinstall i know thats a pain with W2000 as it is a pig but since SP4 came out it doesn't seem as bad if not slow even on broardband to download and install.
may I also suggest a good practice; of always disconnect your modem cable from the pc during a storm,; my practice now is to even disconnect while the machine is off even if I am at home;now part of the routine of powering up or off; just a thought for you:)
