Loader Error 3 Message
Posted on 2003-10-21
I am having problems loading into w2k. This is my company's laptop and I am very restricted to what I can do to fix it. Here is the latest.. (NO Floppy Drive, Only CD-Rom, No Admin Access)
1.) I manage to log into windows using a w2k CD-Rom (Personal Copy) running the repair feature in the setup (Boot direct from CD)
2.) Once the windows has been log-in I have no problems I have access to everything the way it should be.
3.)When I shut down and restart without the CD. I get a message "Windows can not boot because some software has been changed, Loader Error 3" appears and gets stuck. However when if I repair from the w2k CD and boot again, No Problem. What's up with that??
1.) Master Boot Record corrupted
2.) Registry has been altered
3.) Dell Laptops suck!!!
PLEASE HELP ME. I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO SEND MY COMPUTER AWAY TO GET RE-IMAGED.
