Default Windows ME failure

Sounds like your Hard Drive may be failing. Try running scandisk in Real
Mode DOS, booting from your WinMe Startup (floppy) Disk.

Select option 4) Minimal and at the A:\ prompt, type:
scandisk c:
Then press return. (Note the space between the k and the c and note the
colon : after the c)

If it will let you, progress with the tests (depends how bad the disk is).
If errors are reported and scandisk offers to repair, decline - and also
decline a surface scan.

Treat the disk with caution and hope that you will able to read and copy
your important files at a later time. Only attempt any further testing
if/when you can afford to lose any data. (Urgent preparation for 'sods' Law
is strongly recommended)

Good luck

Mart
