I have a Dell Inspiron 2500 laptop computer with Windows 2000 on it. The other day I walked away from it and when I came back it had a blue stop screen saying inaccessable_boot_device.
I've been trying to restart it with my start up disks. On the first disk I get: file \ntkrnlmp.exe cannot be loaded. Error code 7. Setup cannot continue.
I've tried clicking F8 and starting it with a command prompt, but it goes back to the blue screen from there.
Any ideas?

I'm checking these sites. I see you can download a service pack for Win 2000. I wonder if that will help?

that service pack installs it though. I don't want it installed on my desktop computer. Doesn't look like I can save it and burn it to a CD to put on the laptop. I'm totally lost.

Cool! I had closed up the computer and ignored it because I was so frustrated trying to fix it. I decided to give it and me another chance today. Guess what? I got it running again and didn't lose anything! Yeah!
Thanks for helping me out with this.
