Okay, if I tap F8 at startup, I get:
You need to go into safe mode first.
Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
* Restart the computer.
* As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
* Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
* Press the Enter key.
Try the scanreg options that I mentioned above.

I cannot get it to boot from the disk. I have tried a new disk. I have tried changing the boot order in the BIOS. I cannot get it to boot from the CD. When I do "Force boot from CD-ROM", The screen goes black with a cursor in the corner. Non-responsive.
I am sure after you boot with the boot CD, you can go to your c:\ drive

I've created 3 different boot disks from 3 different places. None work.
Did you try to recreate your boot CD?
How did you obtain your boot image?
This is for later...do you have any data on the laptop that you need?
Do you have a recovery CD?
So your model did not come with a diskette drive? Just a little surprised since it is an older machine. Honestly, I don't use mine for anything...USB memory key eliminated the need for it.
Back to your problem, post back with your responses. I am sure if I don't have an answer...one of the lurkers will jump in with one.

Since it wouldn't load the CD I thought the drive was faulty, and replaced it.
