Change first boot option in BIOS to run from cd, and Press 'R' when choice screen comes up after installing basic drivers, etc. Type 'chkdsk /r' and wait an hour or two.
I am need of a miracle.
My computer is stuck in what i think of as a restart loop. After powering on, windows xp screen appears (w/moving bar at bottom) sits there for about 7-10 sec then screen goes blank and about 3 sec later it restarts. Windows login does not appear. It will continously loop thru this process.
At first Safe mode only started with out networking options. But now I can't start in safe mode at all it just reboots the computer after the scrolling screen of items being started. I am not sure what this could be, and have no idea how to get at least safe mode working.
Windows xp service pack updates
900 mhz celeron
264 mb ram
nvidia graphics card ge-mx70
Any ideas would be great
