    Welcome to TSG!

    Start (or restart) the PC, then start tapping the F8 key about twice a second.
    (Some PCs use F8 for other options, in that case try F5. On some Multimedia keyboards you may have to hold a separate Function key down so the Fx keys will not be seen as media keys)

    The following Menu should appear:
    Windows Advanced Options Menu
    Please select an option:


    • Safe Mode
    • Safe Mode with Networking
    • Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    • Enable Boot Logging
    • Enable VGA Mode
    • Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
    • Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
    • Debugging Mode

    • Disable automatic restart on system failure
    • Start Windows Normally
    • Reboot
    • Return to OS Choices Menu
    Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
    Choose the option in Blue. This will cause it (hopefully) to stop on the error that is causing it to reboot so you can read it. (Not the autochk error)
    Post the Technical Information Section towards the bottom, usually a *** STOP 0x12345678 number, followed by 4 more numbers in parentheses.
    The next line may mention a file name.
    You will have to use the power button to turn the system off.

    Also try these in this order:

    1. Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
    2. Safe Mode
    3. Safe Mode with Networking
    4. Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
    5. Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    See if any of them will let you get to the Desktop.
