    Question Reboot

    Is there a way to reboot a comp without using a reboot floppy because my comp isn't starting in win ME, It says "INVALID SYSTEM DISC" when there is no disc in the floppy drive and my reboot floppy(form norton antivirous) is screwed up.
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    INVALID SYSTEM DISC means your hard drive is not being detected properly.

    (this should be in general really)

    Open the case and check if the ide or scsi cable is connected correctly

    Check the power cable is in correctly

    Check there is an operating system on the hard disk and it is bootable

    Check the bios and check if it is set to boot from the hard drive

    Check the hard drive and check the hard drive configuration

    1. Find anyone else who has WinME, and ask them to create a boot floppy for you.

    2. You have an extremely unforgiving warranty if you can't open the case. I'd be mortified if I couldn't open the case to add new disks / cards / memory etc.
    Send it back to the seller if its under warranty then.
