Ok here it goes I will try my best to recall exactly what  happened.
1. yesterday was having problems opening .pst file spoke to someone at easy recovery and they explained it sounded like a hard disk read error.
2. Today ran disk frag and printed report . it said it had fragmented files it did not move.
3. Deleted some old temp files, cookies.
4. installed sypbot and ran program- nothing unusual there..
5. Tried to run scan disk or chkdisk by clicking on c drive properties, tools, check disk - it would not run. I then closed out of it and  tried rebooting thought maybe it had to be restared after defrag and spybot.
6. that's when it started doing things quickly that I could not keep up with but from what I could read it said chk disk  found errors and started deleting files. ran few a  few other things that I could not read it was movingto quick, it tried to boot up and stopped on where it said fixed disk 0  then it said to F1 to resume. I did it looked like it was going to start it wento the windows 2000 pro screen and said it was starting. then it just goes back to the hit f1 to resume.
7. I tried F8 and restarting in safe mode, it would not start
8. I tried to go back to last known configuration and that did not work either.

HELP!!   I do not have a clue what to do from here. can anything be saved?
I appreciate all your help in advance!
Thanks.

howdy,

boot from the oem cd and get to the repair console, you can run chkdsk /r fromn there, after it runs depending on any errors, you can reboot and do a repair.

hope that this helps

mount as slave drive in another box....run disk tools from there.

then replace back into original PC and try reboot sequence.

if you have to do a repair, you won't lose any data or programs, however you will have to go to the update site you reload updates since the repair will restore to what ever version of the sp the cd has.

hope that this helps

I really want to thank youf for answering my question I am not sure how to go about  closing or points.
I have been out of the office since the day after I posted the question. My father became suddenly ill and passed away.
I was not here to resolve the issue, they just bought a new one. So what are your suggestions, on the points, what is fair? and how do you go about it?

thanks again!
