I opend my computer because I did not have graphics; found that the video card was loose and everything else inside the computer was tight and connected. When I restarted it first asked me to check all drives; check came back fine. When trying to start Windows, it first offers me the "Press F11 to start recovery" option, then it goes to the screen starting with "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this". I have tried safe mode, last known configuration, and start Windows normally options, but it keeps coming but to the "We apologize..." screen.

The computer was not connected to the network before of after the cleaning, and it was fine last night when I left. The whole problem started today.

Hardware: E-machines with Athlon 64 (single core), 2 GB RAM.
Software: Windows XP, all updates to date. AVG 7.5, Spy Sweeper, Zone Alarm

Thanks in advance,

Jorge
