A lot of the repair methods that were easy are not usable. This leaves us with 2 common repairs and the real fix of the OS install.
Here's the 2 common repairs you can research Google.com about:
1. XP REPAIR INSTALL
2. XP PARALLEL INSTALL
Item one is well documented. Item two is used when I want to get easy and full acceess to a failed OS's registry and files. There is NO STEP BY STEP to cure your failed OS. Item ONE is the only one with deep docuementation where as item TWO is great stuff you have to be comfortable with troubleshooting the OS, know how to use the tools and have an idea what you want to do with the busted OS.
I'm in a bit of a pickle, I was installing some beta drivers from nvidia on my gaming desktop just for fun, but when I restarted the computer can't run for more then 3 minutes until it crashes, so I need to go back and reverse the drivers i installed or get rid of them. The dilemma here is that I'm not exactly sure what I need to do, nor can I BOOT INTO SAFE MODE, which has been an issue for me for about a year now. Whenever I begin to login in safe mode the computer abruptly restarts before it even reaches the desktop. Here are the desktop's specs:
Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 Motherboard
intel core 2 duo e6550
evga nvidia 9800gtx+
2gb of ddr2 ram
Netgear wireless card
soundblaster audigy SE card
2 cd/dvd drives
2 sata HDDs one 160gb and one 500gb the 500 is logical the 160 prime
I have a blacx HDD dock so I can use my internal HDD as an external, and I have a 250gb external at my disposal. It would really be a Christmas miracle if you could help me solve both these problems.
