I'm having computer problems, can anyone help please?
Question: Somehow, as I was deleting unused programs off my computer under the Add/Remove Programs, I started to delete this ATI Technology Programs and as it was removing, my computer just shut off. When I went to turn the computer back on, I have a computer password that when you turn the computer on, it ask you for a password and a windows password. When I get to the windows password and wait about 10 seconds, the computer automatically restarts itself. And I have to enter the passwords again. I tried typing my windows password in real fast to get to the desktop of the computer, and I did, but it still restarted itself. I'm pretty knowledgeable with computers but this is something I can't figure out. Does anyone have any clue on what might be the problem before I have someone come fix it or before I restore the whole computer? Also, I'm having a rough time getting the computer in safe mode. Right when I turn on the computer, you know how you can hit F2 to enter setup mode or F12 for boot mode, but there is not an option for safe mode. Can anyone please help with this also? My computer has Windows XP! It is a Dell Computer that I got in 2005!

This problem can be solved, but the fix is very long and a lot of hassle. Does your computer have a 3.5" floppy drive? If it doesn't, you can temporarily install a 3.5" drive and boot your computer with it using a Windows 98 or Windows ME boot disk. Then, copy your driver files to the C: drive and reboot. MAYBE your video card will pick up the old driver and default to the old configuration. If not, take out the 3.5" drive and try to do a repair with the XP repair console on your XP CD, booting from the CD first in the BIOS setup. Run the repair routine and reboot. If it still doesn't work, you MAY have to wipe the drive and rebuild it from scratch. I would try installing your hard drive to another computer first, copying all your data as a backup, and then wiping the drive. While you have your hard drive slaved to the other computer, try installing your video drivers on it.......can't hurt.
Yes, replace it or buy a hard drive with an OS preinstalled. You should try and find on that has Windows 1998 or 95, as your hardware would probably not cope well with XP (definetly not Vista). I don't think the monitor would be affected by you fooling around with the power supply but you may have touched the motherboard or processor and discharged static electricity - ruining the components.
Hi! Use F8 to get to the full menu. Safe mode is there, along with safe mode with command prompt. Good luck!
Ouch, What you did was delete your driver for you video card, and the setting was set to high so your computer can not display it now. What OS are you using?
Sound like you may have changed your screen settings. Step 1) - 2 Ways to do this.. Right click anywhere on your background and click on Adjust Screen Resolution or Click on Start (the little circle or big circle on your pc in the bottom left) On the right side of the menu Click on Control Panel Again on the right side of that menu you will see Appearance and Personalization - just under that click on Adjust Screen Resolution Step 2) In the middle of the Adjust Screen Resolution screen you will see a drop down bar that says Resolution click that and adjust your screen to the recommended settings or to the one that best fits your likes use the slide bar on the left. After you selected the one you want on the bottom right click on Apply Your screen will go black as it changes. if you like the change pick Keep Changes if not pick Revert, and try another setting till you find the one you want. When your done click OK and your all set.
