    Well I was able to get the computer going again until I restarted it. Now it will not turn on at all. I am thinking it is the power switch? Any suggestions besides buying a new computer?

This is a common problem in our field. For this problem u can do only one thing i.e. repair. For reparing your operating system Be carefull. Because your silly mistake loss your files. First make your system first bootable disk to cd/dvd rom in your BIOS. Or make first bootable device to your cd/dvd rom. Insert your bootable cd to your cd/dvd rom. It will ask press any to boot forn cd. u just press any key. Your system will start setup. After completing your setup your system will automatic restart. After some time some option will come. Like For reparing Press 'R' Escape without complete your setup press 'Esc'. For installation press 'Enter' If this option comes first time U just press enter button. After that before formating Same question will ask by your computer system at this time You just press 'R' Some times it will start to copy system files in your HDD. But some times it will show select os C:\Windows press 1 It will come c:\windows in widows directory type 'chkdsk' and press enter. Like c:\windows\chkdsk press enter It will start to repair your system. Don't worry your data will be safe. after finished u restart your pc and work as usual. good luck Purushotam

Usually when you get a blue screen an error shows up on the page. This error can assist in solving the problem! The error is something like STOP 0x00000000 You might need to try it one more time to get the stop error! Write down any error messages or filenames of the screen! cause sometimes stop errors are caused by faulty programs! Search support.microsoft.com for the meaning of the stop error or post back information to this post so that i can see what could be the problem! Another question, Do you have sp2 installed? regards, babb
