ok yes i know i have a reputation as a "child" on this site but i have a problem with my other comp and i was wondering if theres any techies out there who may have a suggestion.

ok so everytime i boot the comp it brings me to a screen saying its trying to boot and then it runs diagnostics on the comp and restarts it, i left it running one time and it just kept doing that over and over. i think my comp is phucked but im not sure so can you please help me even though i am a "child/kid?"

If you use windows, you can get one of these:

http://www.bootdisk.com/

It's probably just missing a startup file.

If that doesn't work, try bugging Infinite on IRC. If you catch him at work, he'll probably be free to help

I appreciate the props, but that's a big ole negative on the Windows help. I am far from the guy to go to for Windows questions. I'm one of those arrogant *nix guys: nothing I own runs windows. I've forgotten more about that OS since I wiped it off my desktop 2 years ago than you'd beleive.
