running chkdsk /r on tower.
to summarize, no internet access on original laptop so can't download any fixes
trying to get tower to work (was able to start in safe mode but then had no IE access) so I can download to zip drive and portage over to ailing laptop.
Any advice for what else to check on laptop while waiting to see if tower is usable?
edit: running application and driver recovery disk on laptop will see what that provides
edit 2: can't get app and driver disk to run, install shield runs and then get error (-5009 : 0x800706ba)
error details: >Ctor\objectwrapper.cpp (389)
> Kernal\CABfile.cpp (263)
> SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1611)
