This is all useful since I am having the samwe problem. The question is
though, how do you fix it? especially since I can't even log on or get to the
C: prompt?

Post a new message. Don't hijack another thread. Give a complete and
concise description of the problem, the system and all troubleshooting
you have done.

Rock, why don't you just help the girl, give some valuable advice
instead of whining about a correct procedure...the problem is already
described accurately by many people (see ABOVE messages)
I have the same problem and it is frustrating as it is, especially
working under time pressure to get it fixed.

I refer to the problem described in detail by the many other people
about the Fatal System error-blue screen. Unfortunately, I do not have
Norton installed, nor do I have a Dell that has this option of getting
the system to boot trhough a different way.
I can only press F8 and none of the options get me to either a command
prompt or into Windows.
For some reason, my computer is also not reading my cdrom drive
anymore, thus, a XP cd, boot cd or anything can not help it getting
started. HELP!

I also do not have a floppy drive. Any ideas on reinstalling windows
with these limitations?....it has been driving me crazy for the past
months and am almost ready to go out and by a new harddrive..but that
isn't the problem.

Thank you all, for your feedback and just the thought of willing to
help and advise...

Nic I feel your frustration, but my advice to you is the same. Post a
new message with the specifics of your system, when the problem
occurred, what changes were made to the system between when the system
was running well and when the issue came up, and any troubelshooting
steps you've taken. Nic, in my experience there can be significant
differences in setup between systems. When someone says they have the
exact same problem that may mean they have some of the same symptoms,
but doesn't necessarily mean things are exactly the same. And there can
still be differences in what's causing the problem because the systems
are different.
