As part of a much, much larger problem I'm having - I need to get my computer to start in diagnotic mode. Problem is currently that on normal, safe mode and safe mode with command prompt I get nothing but a black screen and cursor. No task manager, no command prompt, nada. So I'm running the command prompt from the repair program on my windows disk.
I did something wrong (tinkering around in windows, when I managed to coax it into starting up) but I don't know what. Before, I could pull up msconfig and turn diagnostic mode on to restart my computer to make her go. Now it says "You do not have sufficient privileges to run System Configuration. Please run this utility as a user in the administrators group." I'm not savvy on how to do this, and I'm not savvy on how to switch to diagnotic mode without using msconfig. Help!
