hi, i have just recieved this after a forced restart, i have a couple of threads in this forum relating to freezups, and this is the latest. forced a restart and go this following black screen message befreo boot up. the title thread appears at the top of the message:
murray, it has completely gone to **** now, i can't even bootup, tried a repair 3 times. first time it didnt recongnise the windows instalation, just came up with the drive size etc. apparently i have a pci.sys file missing and it is stopping it form booting up. can i install somehow?
I suggest a format and reinstall. Its the easiest thing to do. If you can move the disk into another computer and backup any important files. If you cant do thisyou could boot with a DOS flopppy and just delete windows then reinstall.
let us know (maybe spikeychris might be more helpful in future?)
