I would highly recommend using Windows 2000 than Windows ME. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to load the Task Manager and see if "explorer.exe" is listed. If so, select it and press the End Task button. Then click File->New Task and type "explorer.exe" into the new window without the quotes. Press OK and see if it will load.

Ok, it is far-reaching to attempt to repair your computer via this text box, but your files are NOT LOST. Simply purchase an external hard drive caddie, mount the hard drive inside it, and plug it into the USB port of another computer.

Now you simply drag n drop your precious data onto another computer.

Then you can go back and re-try your Me installation again, without any fear of losing your files.

Regards,

Erik.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.
