Hi micjack,

First, try pressing the F8 key repeatedly when booting up to get the Advanced Boot Options screen. Then choose "Last Known Good..." from the menu.

If no joy, do it again and select the "Safe Mode" option. If you get to a Safe Mode Windows, you can possibly run "System Restore" and revert back to when the system worked properly. If you didn't have System Restore enables, you can try uninstalling any recently installed software that may be causing your problem.

Ouch, just saw what you posted while I was typing my post! That's not good news for sure.

Do you have the full retail XP setup CD that you can use to do a Repair Install? That would allow you to attempt a system repair while preserving your personal files.

If you only have a System RESTORE CD, it will allow restoring but will delete all of your personal files.

If you have neither of those, post back the details of your system, Make, Model service tag # whatever and perhaps something will be available to bail you out.

OK, also try to get the EXACT wording of the error if you want to attempt to troubleshoot it.

I'll check back occasionally.

You can disable the "reboot on system failure" and possibly get a good look at the error message. That option is available in the F8 boot menu.

No help there. You're going to need to find the CD. I would recommend a full delete of the system partition and installing a clean version. You can try a "Repair" install of the existing system when it is offered during the normal install if you want but I have less faith in that. Either way, if you have valued data on the drive, you should back it up using some means like a BartPE or a Linux live boot CD for access.
