Registry/Configuration Error

  s99Raj 18:30 30 Aug 2006

On starting up a Windows ME pc I get only three options : Normal, Logged and Safe.

Normal simply takes me to a blank desktop with no icons. Neither the mouse nor any keys have any effect. In Safe Mode I get to the screen with the words "Safe Mode" in the four corners but again neither the mouse nor any keys have any effect.

The error message at startup is

Windows has detected a registry/configuration error. Use SCANREG to correct this error.

I certainly can't get into DOS mode or any mode to enter Scanreg. Any ideas please?

No worries - I managed to fix it using a Windows 98 startup boot CD and got into DOS that way. Phew!
