Running a Dell Inspiron 8000 notebook. Win2k pro. The system starts up with no apparent problems. After entering the username and password, the system does not continue beyond the logging in dialog box (you know that small WIN2k screen that appears after you click on OK). The HD light goes on and off, but does not stay on consistently. I am able to boot into safe mode with no trouble (just seems to take a little extra time). The system is not hooked up to a network. Tried running a repair off the Win2k CD, but nothing changed.
