This is a laptop I gave to a friend a few years ago. It was my favorite, an IBM Transnote. It's not booting, except in Safemode. It has Windows 2000, SP4, and 327M of RAM. It's hard drive has a capacity of 10G, with half used. I cannot find any antivirus or antispyware programs on it, (
GASP!) and will try putting Avast on it, but don't know if I can do that in Safemode. It looks like it's set on atomatic updates.
What happens on booting is that it godes to the Windows Start Up screen, and in the little box where it shows "starting up," the little blue boxes only fill up about 2/3 of the way, and then it freezes.
What can I do? I've gotten so used to working with XP now . . . .
Thanks for your help, Pat
