have you tried the basics, like resetting the CMOS or trying to remove/replace the battery if needed?

They that first then go for more drastic measures!

Is the ipod connected when you try to boot? Cause if so the PC will try and boot off the ipod .. hence "My PC will not boot". I found that out when i was updating some music to my pod and we had a power surge.. i was like wtf.. unpluged the ipod and the pc booted right up.:eek:

I found the disk but the computer froze while trying to do the repair. it froze with the blue screen that says 'setup is starting windows'. im not sure what to do next.
