Hi, Just turned my PC on and it boots up with Run in Safe mode, Run Windows Normally etc.


Just found out that someone just pulled out the plug.

I choose Run Windows Normally, then it comes up with the boot screen for like 2 seconds then it reboots and does the same thing.

What should I do?

Hi Samuelb07,

Sounds like ur O.S. might have a serious crash. If u have the original XP Cd that u used 2 install the system, slot it in, ensure that cdrom boot is first option from BIOS. Boot the pc with the cd inserted and go for repair option.
HOW?
When asked after loading files, select setup xp on system. the next screen will detect ur windows installation and ask for repair. Go ahead by pressing R.

Fear not. Repair will not destroy ur files but put d system in good shape.

Just in case u need to know the exact blue screen error; When u start ur system, press F8 and select disable system an option that looks like Disable automatic restart on system failure.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Hi guys,

Just looking at a friend's Dell XP machine, in the NTFS here the volume is also said to be dirty.
Disc check runs automatically & seemingly successfully on startup, then restarts. On the restart it just hangs and does not boot into XP. Hangs with a blank black screen, though mouse responds. i left it there for 5 mins - and nothing ... The PC won't respond on the black screen - won't even turn off ... have to turn off at the powerpoint. i am currently leaving it longer to see if it actually boots in to XP.
Is this a problem with the harddrive itself do you think, data corrupting or frying itself?? i don't know what was happening on the PC before hand to cause the problem ... just the symptoms afterwards...

Any hints would be most appreciated.

Cheers

Bilbo
