I recently swapped my CD drive for a working one. After putting the computer back together, the computer was working. I shut down the computer and brought it back up, but now I have no access to any icons or the startup task bar. I went to upgrade a program and after the program upgrade all the icons and access to Windows was gone. I would like to know how to fix this problem...

Cool

Try rebooting to DOS. If you can get to a C:\ prompt type scanreg /restore and follow the instructions to restore a known good registry. Hope this works.

bahaynes - thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I can only get to the setup screen, but when i try to restore anything the same thing happens. Is there a way to bypass the setup screen so i can get to the C; prompt?
