If you want to take a chance on keeping your errors, then install overrepparttar first operating system. It won't fix errors, but it won't in all likelihood destroy all your data, either. The only way to get allrepparttar 107856 errors off is to format your hard drive and reinstall. By formatting, you WILL lose ALL your files on that drive. Neither choice is very appealing, to tellrepparttar 107857 truth.

I opt for a clean slate - back everything up and reinstallrepparttar 107858 full operating system plus all your drivers and software. I have been working on a SICK laptop for 2 weeks - because of a dirty upgrade. I had to format and reinstall everything. Once I did that, we didn't have a driver, so my partner upgradedrepparttar 107859 Windows 98 - but there was NO WAY to get it to work correctly again. So I re-formatted and reinstalled everything again. Now that I won't let him touch it anymore, it works like a charm, and we turn it back to its owner repaired. (Oh yes - and still able to get support fromrepparttar 107860 company because it has its original operating system in it - they will not support it if we upgrade!)
