The start menu is activated by clicking a globe (sphere) at the bottom of the screen on the left side. The globe contains the 4 Windows colors. If for some reason you cannot find it, you can still press the Windows key located between the ALT and the Fn key, on the left of the keyboard.
if you cant afford to get it repaired, then check the processor, hdd, ram slots to ensure that they are all in their fixed possitions,
the problem may be that a module of ram has come loose or your processor has, if they haven't then get yourself a digital multimeter and learn about computer electronics,, although buying a new computer maybe the quickest option.....
If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to
windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to
solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd
or dvd to install
windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows
already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.
how to perform a repair installation
this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.
insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,
press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either
enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power
up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in
order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.
if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)
