    After restoring to prior date, lost power during restart, and it goes to safe
    mode, from which it will not change. I have a blank screen after any
    configuration changes.
    My software was installed by another individual, who is in Iran. Is there
    any way that I can restore the computer, without the software?

    You have a couple options to try...

    1) Go into SAFE MODE by pressing F8 when you power up the system.
    - from the RUN dialog box type the following to start the SYSTEM RESTORE :

    c:\windows\system\restore\rstrui.exe

    as per KB279736 ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/279736)

    2) You can follow the steps from KB307545 . You don't need to have the
    Windows XP cd, you can use a Windows 2000 or 2003 cd to get to the recovery
    console. If you don't have access to any of those, you can try to create a
    bootable cd from --> http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

    starting]

    I hope this helps.
