I have a problem with Windows ME. The computer (HP Pavilion XE783) was working fine. Was sitting idle and I noticed that the screen saver had frozen up. The computer would do nothing and I cold booted. When I tried to re-start it wanted to start in safe mode and on that same page it also said there was a Registry/Configuration error and use ScanReg. I tried starting in safe mode, and have since tried all 4 options it gives for starting and I get the following.
Goes to a black page with message
tyhen changes to a blue screen with the message Cannot find helper driver. Ensure that IFSHLP.SYS has been installed.
Help, I have no idea where to go next. Can I get the computer to start in dos and run scanreg from there? If so how do I do that and what's the command line to start scanreg?
I would be really grateful to anybody that has any ideas on how to fix this thing. Thanks
