|"...It will not start in safe mode"...?|
... have you tried tapping F8 key @ boot-up?
... safe mode or "last good configuration"??
... there should be a factory restore in the progams list on the T1090
... if you can'nt access s/mode or last good *
... try safe mode command prompt then type:
RSTRUI.EXE [press ENTER]
... this should bring up the xp system restore, from there select a nice early date when the pc was OK.
... then look for the factory restore listed
it wo'nt be called that though, maybe * restore *=wild (anything)
wat do I know?
... got brain freeze
