Does the PC boot up and the displaythe desktop with icons? If not try repairing the OS with the bootable original OS CD/DVD and select he repair option or reinstall the OS without formatting on the same drive/partition. If after this you can access the BIOS, keep all settings as default or fail safe option. Also run checkdisc if you can fro m the ROM.....................sodeep

Most often permission problems are the result of a virus.I recommend down loading the free version of avira anti virus then run a scan in safe mode and see whats on your system.
