Freezing on start up

  onokeck 23:26 29 Dec 2004

My friend has an Evesham 1000AMD Athlon with OS WinMe. She loaded a Scrabble game and now can get no further than the WinMe welcome screen on boot up. I have tried starting in safe mode to uninstall the scarbble game, but again freezes on WinMe screen. Anyone have any ideas what has caused this and/or what I can do to help her get back to normal operation? (The scrabble software is compatible with WinMe according to the box). Thanks for any comments. Casey

Hi, if you can Start-up in Safe Mode you should then be able to sort things for your friend. Either uninstall scrable or perhaps do a Restore to an earlier date? Cheeers.

Sorry, I just read your thread again - apologies.

Do a selective startup, not safe mode make a note of what stops it loading then next time you do the above click N for no when you come to it next time
