Default Windows ME will not start or reinstall

I have Windows Me on a Toshiba Tecra 8100
I left computer powered on and battery went dead causing
computer to crash. This has happened before without a
problem but this time I can not start Windows Me.
When I start computer the Windows startup screen displays
and than it goes to dos and asks if I want to start normal
or safe. Windows will not start in any mode, it just goes
back to startup and than back to dos display asking for
normal or safe startup.
I tried to reinstall ME from original CD. Scandisk runs,
setup initializes, scanning system registry, than I
receive a standard mode: fault outside of ms-dos extender,
Please remove any disks and press any key to restart
system.
This is as far as I can get. It than just restarts and
again asks for choice of safe start or normal which wont
work either.
Any help on forcing a new install or how to remove windows
without loosing other files.
