    got a mates comp to try to fix(presario sr1055cl)
    when it starts up it defaults to a start windows normally black screen with three commands above like start in safe mode etc

    if left it keeps rebooting to this page
    if i press enter it goes to compaq sign and looks like it gonna work but then goes back to same screen

    i can get into the bios and can do a system recovery but it just puts me to a plain light blue screen and nothing happens

    please help
