    Okay I need a lot of help!!
    My computer froze so I turned it off manually and when I turned it back on it started to load then it went straight to a black screen that said:
    we apologize for the inconvienance, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.......ect.
    Safe mode
    safe mode with networking
    safe mode with command prompt
    last known good configuation
    start windows normally
    -----------------------------
    no matter what option I click it starts to load and the computer makes a weird noise and it returns to the same black screen. I have tried pressing F8 and it lists a few more options including debgging mode. I have tried them all and nothing. I have also tried putting in the windows XP disk and nothing.
    Do I need to reset or reformat it? Is there an easier way for me to fix this??
    PLEASE HELP ME!! I'm desperate

    Bring up the menu that shows a few more items and select "Disable automatic restart on system failure" A blue screen will appear with a Stop Error Message - post back some of the details on there, please. We would need to see the numeric code - 0x0000?? and ANY_WORDS_JOINED_UP by underscores to be able to see what's been going on..
