When I turn on the computer, it starts up fine until its gets to the windows 2000 screen then a blue screen pops up that says that it was not able to load device driver. You can't do anything shutdown or restart. I tried everything but it still won't work.

Re: It starts up fine until a blue screen pops up
i think one of the drivers are the culprit. heres what you should do: open your system unit and remove all the pci cards except the vga card. and turn on the computer.if it starts fine, then turn it off and hook each card one by one.

You will need the Windows 2k disc. However you won't be able to find one unless you check out like ebay. Win 2k has been EOL for years now. I would suggest even buying the lowest end computer for around $250-300 and it would be tremendously faster than what you have currently. You could also check around at pawn shops, mom and pop computer stores for cheaper ~$50-100 dollar comptuters that would be better than this. I wouldn't waste your time trying to fix such an old computer.
Hello my friend,
The blue screen is very popular and it's usually happen when there is a file system deleted or a virus on your computer.
You may try to boot up your system in safe mode and then uninstall any software that you installed recently and restore also your computer to a date when it was working fine.
If this doesn't fix the issue, you can try the recovery system if enabled when you installed your system for the first time.
If it's not the case, the only way to get this computer working again is by formating your computer and installing windows again.
if a blue screen pops up with white writing theres something seriously wrong with your laptop a blue screen on a computer is the worst possible thing that could happen apart from the thing actually exploding and can be caused by a wide range of things, my suggestion would be to reinstall windows as it will basically give you brand new computer with no errors

It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them.
You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers.
Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.
