Well here goes my explainanation it wont start :D no more need be said ok JK here welll it gives me the restart computer message we all heard this before and Ive tried 2 methods ive read about i'll list em here the enable/disable wipe method wont work(wont even let me apply the settings) tells me that one or more of the drives that there was an error to restart and try again... lol no work
second method was

Quoted from another forum
Start/RUN/msconfig/Startup tab and see if *StateManager is checked. Hopefully, Not. If Yes, the smgr.dll version HAS to BE so "messing" with it is not an option. The Download would be necessary, and this is from experience and from the MS moderator I've used who is quite capable. I think the version would be wrong primarily if you Re-Installed Win Me; Not sure if Version would change if original install is in. Hope Nick's idea is all that it is. Good Luck- P.S. Save this/Nick's verbiage as someday Symptoms may force you to refer back to some of the Trouble-Shooting tips that experts have taught me and others. Networking tips is how we non-experts survive and learn!

third method I tried is safe mode well guess how this turned out I CANT BOOT UP IN SAFE MODE(nuts eh?)

Yea this shud be a thinker now for you smart guys GL trying to help me out =/

Try downloading and burning an image of UBCD (The Ultimate Boot CD) and using the Restore Utility. This should be able to use any restore points you have saved.

There doesn't seem to be any restore utility (any more ?) on the UBCD.
