Did anyone find a solution to this problem?
I have, or had, a laptop with a dead battery - meaning it could only be on if it was plugged into the wall. Me, being a cheapskate, refused to pay $100+ dollars for a universal laptop charger, so I browse the internet for a cheap one. Because of this, I had many problems keeping my computer on, if the cord somehow disconnected, my laptop would die in a matter of seconds. This happened frequently. After roughly 100 instant shutdowns, I try to fix the cord and what not, then turn my laptop back on - which is what I did everytime this problem would occur. Then I recieved the above error message.
I do beleive it was a shut down problem, and did not have anything to do with the device. Though, I have no idea how to fix this problem, I'm currently looking for another Installation CD, but I have began researching Floppies. Seems impossible without the former CD-Key, which I possess, but you also have to make the CD bootable from a reboot.
Does anyone know how this would be possible, or if the problem is already solved, maybe you could inform me.
