My Windows ME computer will not boot up in either Normal or Safe mode. Gets as far as the blue or grey screen and then just stops. Have tried leaving it for several minutes but nothing happens.
Have been having a lot of hanging at StartUp on this machine lately. Usually I fix it by going into Safe mode and renaming the Wininit file to a bogus extension. Now I can't even get into Safe mode to do this. Any ideas?
If you have one put your Win ME (I hope) a (restore CD) disk in the drive boot from it, and ask it to restore your Registry if this option is available.
If Reg option is not available then go for restore the system files.
If it's not a restore disk e.g its a PUCKA MS Setup these option may not be available. I mate had a similar problem we got his going by booting from a floppy and keying either reg restore or restore reg Or it may have been restore/reg or reverse Sorry about being vague but it's been some time back and unfortunately, he's now passed away.
