Hello, this is my problem.
I have a Compaq Evo W8000 Running windows 2000 professional windows NT Workstation 4.0
It recently crashed and so I reinstalled windows 2000 and it worked again for a short while and then crashed again I removed the back panel and it was full of dust so I decided to take it apart and clean it up with compressed air and put it back together without any knowledge of what I was doing and it did not go well. First when turned on the PC it went on loading windows 2000 and then just as it was about to enter windows 2000 it went back into setup and started loading again and then told me the file NT5INF.CAT on service pack 4 is needed then copy files from GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROMO\I386 I then I tried to load the Service pack 4 and I discovered that the CD drive was not showing on the boot list so I cannot load up the files needed from the cd disk. All I have to boot from is the floppy disk 3.5 or the hard drive C: or Compaq Ethernet Controller. Any help or information explained in layman’s terms would be much appreciated as I am not a Pc expert by any stretch of the imagination.
NOTE: I only use this PC windows 2000 for running Media composer Video editing.
