Re: Help!Me!

While this isn't English 101, the spelling, punctuation and sentence
structure errors in your post make it virtually impossible to read with any
clarity.  If I understand what you are trying to say, I would suggest you
make sure all your data is saved to a CD or other media and perform a format
and clean install of Windows.

Re: Help!Me!

The system needs a complete reinstall from scratch, and you may have a
bad hard drive as well.  Also, it's a very old system (from your post, I
am going to guess it's an "early" 400 series unit .... 400 to 435
(Penitum 75 to 120 MHz)).  Also from your post, this is probably beyond
your capability.  And may not be worth the time it will take on a unit
this old. wrote:

Sounds like some serious problems, as others have suggested.  What OS
is this machine running?  By the time you fix or replace the hard
drive and floppy, add some memory, reload the OS from scratch, you are
still going to be stuck with an old, slow machine with a lot of miles
on it, and other potential hardware failures right around the corner.
it's not un-doable, it just may not be worthwhile...

Re: Help!Me!

Sounds like you have lots of hardware problems, possibly
bad hard drive, components on the motherboard, bad
floppy drive, etc...   You need to fix the hardware first
before trying to solve software issues.
