I recently upgraded an HP Pavilion from its own version of ME to Windows 2K. Now every time I log in it loads settings, saves settings & returns to the login screen. Even in safe mode.
Any help greatly appreciated. I need to have this done asap!
Thanks in advance.

do a parallel installation of Windows 2000, that will fix your problem.. boot the PC with your windows 2000CD(make sure CD rom is selected as the boot device in your BIOS) and in the selection,  select a new install from the menu then select the same dirrectory as the original. That should retain your settings as well... here is a link that explains it in detail:

look at this link as well.. the user was able to solve the problem similar to yours on win 98.. and win me is very much alike win98.
