Problem booting up

Help!
Can anyone help me with the following technical problem?
Reconnecting my desk-top recently (a ten-year-old Tiny computer with Windows Millenium) I forgot to connect the scart plug from the monitor, so did so when the system had already started to boot up. It stopped in mid-bootup, after the display of megabytes. I started up again pressing F8, hoping to be able to return the system to a recent date, but the only one offered was quite long ago (September 2005), so I didn’t want that.
I can use the computer in error mode, but would obviously like to have it working normally. A friend told me that I was lucky not to have destroyed the image card.
Anyone know what I can do?
Mike

Have you tried switching it off and rebooting? Apr 7, 2006

Hi Puich,

Have you tried switching off the computer, and then switching it on again. Does it have the same problem after trying this?

At this point a September 2005 date sounds a whole lot more useful than a computer in edit mode, so you might try accepting that. After all, it should not affect the data, only the settings.

Yes, I'm afraid so Trevor.
Are you sure I wouldn't lose any data? I would rather try another solution but the one you suggest might be the only one open to me. Thanks for the reply!
Mike
