Those repair installs generally also need the drivers installed from the separate drivers CD as well.
Tell us more about the install process. Did you install the drivers separately?
So here's the deal: I try booting into windows one day, and I can't even get as far as the boot screen. Safe mode only results in a hard reboot, so I decided to run a repair install of windows XP. After doing this, several things started going wrong:
- At startup I receive a message "generic host service for win32 needs to close"
- Explorer's theme reverts to windows classic after a few minutes
- several key services are not running at startup, i.e windows audio, DCHP client
- at one point my audio randomly cut out and my screen began to fade to white, but the computer's been fine since
I just want some input before I decide to try running another repair install to see if there's any other way to remedy this situation.
