when i bought my dell dimension 8100, it came with windows me and the first thing i got when i turned it on was (this program was illegally run and will be shut down). :no: when i restarted everything was fine.. except for the floppy drive. Dell sent me a free upgrade for XP to try to fix the problem. The drive never worked, so i bought a new one. this one worked for about a week, but then quit.:angry2: any ideas on whats wrong?:confused: i need to make a boot disk for my laptop because it gives me this error (STOP: c000026c: {Unable to load device driver} \systemroot\system32\drivers\cdrom.sys) my cousin said to reinstall, but first i want to try to boot up w\ a boot disk, then do a fresh install.:dead:

the only time the computer was ever opened was when i was trying to see if another cd burner worked (as said in another thread), but the floppy and the burner are far apart, and the floppy stopped working at least 2 years before i had burner problems, so i don't think i messed anything up 2 years ago:no:
