Can you not try backing up your 'important' data on it first then do a clean install?.

Personally that's what i would do.

i can,t back up because the computer will only work in safe mode and have no cd or usb drivers installed in safe mode thanks for your thoughts anyway andy.

If you're feeling adventurous you could take the hard disk out of the problem PC and set it as a slave drive in a working system. This will allow you to read the contents of the drive where you can copy any important information. Once the data is backed up you can feel free to fit it back to the original machine and format and clean install Windows on it.

If this is an option you would like to follow, post back formore information if you need it.

Regards

Taran
