Hello! I am technologically illiterate, so please bear with me. I have a T2460 eMachines, I can't remember it's exact purchase date, but it is something between three and four years old. For the first year to year and a half it worked beautifully, and then it started getting spyware and other fun crap, and I had to do a system restore a few times. Noteably, this began happening more as my teenaged brother began attending school in this area and would use my computer during his visits. :suspiciou In any event, for the past few months it has evidently been doing weird things, the details of which I do not know b/c I have been using a laptop and leaving the desktop to my boyfriend, who has been vague at best about the stages leading up to this. The end result though, is that a couple nights ago the power cord to the router got bumped, the network connection was lost, and when I plugged the router back in, the computer then did a funky shut-down, and upon reboot kept getting hung up at the loading window. I finally worked around that by rebooting in safe mode, and got everything we needed saved to CD. The computer worked okay in standard mode for a little bit after that, but today it went crazy again (I heard a couple loud beeps, and when I came out to see what was going on, sweetie had rebooted and it was getting hung-up in the loading window again). So I decided to use the reboot CD. I have two reboot CDs, the original that came with the computer and then I lost that, paid $20 for a spare, and later found the original. So both legit copies. With both of them, I am getting a Symantec Ghost 7.0 Error. From what I have Googled, Symantec Ghost 7.0 is not something that comes with the computer. A message has been left for the teenaged brother. So the Error screen pops up "Cannot open R:\T2460.GH0", I click OK, because there isn't anything else to do. Next Error is "Cannot open GHOSTERR.TXT", I click OK again, and then "Invalid dump file. If this problem persists, contact Symantec Technical Support at http://service.symantec.com". I hit OK one last time, the screen flashes "Abort. Invalid Dump File." and now I can't use the computer at all. I reboot the system, and end up at the Windows did not start successfully screen, in an endless cycle of no matter how I choose to Start Windows (safe mode, safe mode w/networking, safe mode w/command prompt, last known good configuration and normally, I have tried them all), I just get sent back to this screen. Gak! Is there anything I can do to fix this, or am I just farked?
