hanniball your registry has got corrupted. power pc and press F8 and see if you can get into safe mode??? also if you can get into bios check boot order that might have got corrupted as well

this link may help you

sorry i said in my post i can NOT get into safe mode (blank screen)
Normal mode..(blank screen)

SHELL32.dll..I renamed SHELL32backup.dll in system folder...pc crashed, then rebooted (so didnt get to put the new SHELL32.dll in the folder.

so no SHELL32.dll exists only the SHELL32backup.dll
does that make it any clearer sorry but i didnt explain properly

boot order is correct..i can get into safe mode with prompts if this might help?

but i am not a expert in pc stuff but i can follow a step by step and have the use of this pc
