When I start my computer it will let me log-on as a user, but as soon as windows opens the whole computer freezes and it won't even turn off. I have to turn it off by holding the power button down. It runs in safe mode, but I have no clue what to do to fix this problem? I don't want to lose that much information either, but I don't think I made a restoration point. Any help is appreciated thanks!

Ok when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safemode. Then go to start menu then run type in run "chkdsk /r" then press "y" then restart computer then it fix error on harddisk.wait until it load windows . Ifyou stillface problem then your computer is virus infected scan your computer in safemode with good antivirus.

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.
reset boot formate to f12 but first lets get that blank screen off keep pushing f2 f2 f2 f2 thre or four times intell first page starts up then push f2 then use arrow keys on key board and at bottom booting log you shoud be set up on f2 change boot log f12 then pressf10 to save restart computer then when computer starts up push f12 then run windows under d: drive the it will ask you start windows run windows from disc or trouble shoot go to run windows after that you shoud be ok.
I had the same problems with windows seven. All I do is just install the disk and do a system repair. Depending on the OS, it is not recommended to reboot without saving or backing up any files. Did you try a system restore? You can find out when this problem happened, go to that date, and create a restore point. Another is at the beginning, try pressing F8 and you'll see something like last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked). Also the UAC (user account) on the OS (operating system) may need a password. It's located in the control panel. Sometimes a program affects the computers administrators settings example: cursor fx, which changes the S I D number, wipes out your administrator settings in the UAC and logs in as a guest. It requires a system repair disk to fix. Also it could be a windows genuine validation expiration and a WGA validation tool will take care of it. So you can check your updates in the tools menu.
Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.
Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
