I loaded the drivers and software for my new camera, and since then I have been unable to fully boot my computer.

The computer boots as far my desktop wallpaper, the task bar appears and then is gone, there are no icons and CTRL, ALT & DEL shows no running programs, all I get is my Desktop wallpaper and the cursor.

I have tried running the computer in safe mode, however the same thing happens. I've put my startup floppy in drive A, but the computer is by-passing this somehow.

I've tried going in to DOS prompt and then connecting to the a drive but it still does not reconise the drive.

Can anyone help.

window 98SE, on a Time computer Athlon 2000XP,

Not much you can do without safe mode working or at the very least a boot from floppy. It sure sounds like Windows was corrupted someway.
Check in the BIOS setup to see if the floppy drive has been disabled or skipped at startup boot sequence.

Either via bios or a jumper setting on the board.

Steven, Your bios is set to boot from the HD first. Here's what you can do... enter the bios, set the boot sequence to Floppy , CDrom , HDD 0 ( or some call it HDD 1 use 0 if available )
Don't change anything else. Now save and exit the bios. You can now boot from a floppy to re-install windows. Good Luck.
