    Hi i bought a COMPAQ pc, windows XP desktop in 2003 at a local Best Buy. I was creating a second user account for the system when it froze and shut down. Upon restart, the loading Windows XP black load screen that shows up right after power returns froze and a window came up saying system configuration error. I am currently 20 miles from my house ,and on a different computer obviously, but the i can remember that the error tells me that if problem is not fixed please call the number in my computer manual. I would LOVE to avoid waiting on the phone please help !~~!! :) please..My only solution i could think of was using the system restore disk but i do not even know if the boot up goes far enough for the PC to read the disk. Please help and thank you for your time.

    Hi and welcome. See if you can start in safe mode. For a system this old, I doubt you'll get anywhere calling the number in the computer manual anyway.
