Medion Notebook Help

by Hey Im Tom / November 15, 2008 10:56 PM PST

Hey my Medion Notebook shutdown when the battery died and now when I start it back up it will come to a menu of options which are Start windows normally,safe mode, or best known configuration. But when i click any of them it will go to the windows XP loading screen where it says what edition you have then it restarts and goes back to the options i mentioned in the sentences above..can anyone shed some light on that?

Since all options fail, then the OS is damaged.

Use the method you use to reinstall the OS and your files from backup. That's the easy way to fix this.

When Windows XP is this corrupt and you have nothing but restore CDs the repairs are usually not possible.

Just like your other PCs what did you do when your OS crashed? Now do that again.

Remember that all boot options failed so you must have used the restore CD or "other."
