I'm seeing this with a damage OS (XP in this case.) There are some successes with what they call a "XP REPAIR INSTALL" but you have folk that have no XP CD which removes that option. Remember that preinstalled versions on some laptops do not have this option. You get to fish your files out of the machine and reinstall the OS.
Hi, Last Oct. I got a blue screen that Windows was shutting down my computer to protect it . ( paraphrasing). I had a problem turning it on and charging the battery; but that seems (hopefully) resolved now. However, when I turn it on, I get the screen that gives you the options of starting. The only one that seems to work is Start Normally. I get the Windows logo, then the blue screen flashes for a second and the whole thing begins again. It is an HP computer about 6 years old with XP. How can I get it to work again. I apologize that I do not know all the terminology and ask for your assistance. I did not do anything different or add any hardward when the blue screen first shut me down. Thank you for your help .
