Ok, all hell broke loose last night, my friend came to install my new dvd drive because I was weary to try it myself. He pull the old one, it did not open, and installed the new one. When he turned the computer on it kept on restarting and finally he could not even reboot on safe mode. He told me to reformat because something went bad with the installation. Last night I did what I have done several times, I pulled my trusted Windows 2000 cd and proceded with the reformatting of my C drive, everything went smooth until the cd starting copying files, all the sudden I got a warning saying this Shell 32.dll filing was missing, then the smlogfc.dll was missing FINALLY I got the blue scrren of death that I have never gotten in my 4 years with this computer. Something about a kmode_exeption not handle it, maybe disable bios or memory options such as caching or shadowing etc. etc. I don't have a clue since this box has been solid. I use the new dvd to boot from there, should I try tonight my old cd rom? Any suggestios is appreciated.
