First thing to try is a System Restore from Safe Mode.

Which is accessable from selecting Start, All Programes, Accessories, and Sytem Tools.

Then it must be a Starup item causing you the problem.

Run MSCONFIG and select the Starup tab. Then uncheck all items except Microsoft items and reboot to see if the PC will boot up normally. Then add back the items you need one at a time and reboot to find which item is causing the problem.

Good hunting.

Hello;

Explain what didnt work... Did you edit the msconfig startup files, or you couldn't load msconfig?

Another couple of questions; Have you recently (before the crashes) installed anything, or removed devices etc from the computer?
Do you connect to the internet through a USB device or an internal Network card?

Ok, the error may have something to with either drivers, or more likely Limewire.....

Disconnect your USB network adapter and try to boot to windows without it.
If windows loads, then your USB device drivers are corrupt, and you will need to reinstall them.

To reinstall them go to add/remove programs and uninstall your USB network adaptor software. Plug in your network adaptor, and windows should detect and re-install it.

You did this in safe mode or regular windows?

Do you have a windows xp cdrom? If you do, try a repair installation.

Oh sorry, that should have been nothing happened (or no change is better)!!!
I have to do everything on safe mode, it wont start on regular!
I have the XP CD that came with the lap-top, yeh...how do I do a repair installation?
I've tryed running the CD but it's pre servise pac 2, and a diolog box comes up saying something like "A Newer Version of Windows Exsists on you computer", or something to that efect!
