    Hello
    I have an Acer laptop with Windows XP. The problem is that when I turn on the computer logo appears "Windows XP", then the black screen that asks me if I choose
    start automatically,
    Safe Mode
    Safe Mode with Networking
    Safe Mode with Command Prompt
    last working config Definitley
    starts normally

    well, I type any option for a tenth of a second you see a blue screen, which absolutely can not read something written for too short a time that appears, then return the black screen with the options above.
    What to do?

    Hi, what is the model number of your Acer laptop?
    Do you have the install CD?

    Try booting from the Xp install Cd. - when prompted press [R]
    Choose Windows installation [typically by pressing [1]
    When prompted for password.
    Press Enter.
    Type chkdsk /r
    [note space after chkdsk]

    When fininshed.
    Type Exit
    And press Enter.

    The Bios needs to be set to boot [Start] from the Cd - it may already be set to do so.

    Tapping ALT + F10 at start up should get you to eRecovery Management screen.
    This will take it back to factory settings - but all data and files will be lost -overwritten.
