    perhaps a product key issue.... are you using the product key on the bottom of your laptop ?

    there are other issues it could be but lets start there.

Dell inspiron will not boot in safe mode . goes round in loop . if you put an xp setup disk in it still goes to loop

For your computer to read the Windows CD you need to change your boot mode to CD/DVD drive first. You need to access your BIOS which usually can be done by either pressing F2 or del when you first power on your computer. Once your in the BIOS look for the boot order option and make CDROM as the first boot device, save settings and restart your computer. When the XP cd is read, it will show you Press any key to boot from CD... and you need to press any key right away. It should read the XP disc and doing a repair is another story.

Brought a advent 7113 2nd hand and it was working great but i was updating the windows programs/ however the computer stut down during and now its struck on a loop on the startup. giving options safe...

First try to boot with last know good setting if this doesn't work boot into safe mode and choose a system restore point and then retry you update again. Always be sure your laptop is plugged in when installing or doing updates, since if the battery dies in the middle of an installation or update your stuck like this.

My ASus eee pc is in a constant loop. It starts up with start windows in safe mode safe mode with command prompt or start windows normally... After I select start windows normally it's in a loop and starts...

Ok-Go to Safe Mode-any-click on start menu-run:msconfig-hit enter-click on restore option-choose date-go! If you can't do that, on boot you machine should tell you what other option you have-like"push ESC button to aces setup" or something like that. Hit that button and go to RESTORE function.Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install

I was able to dig this up.

Run Windows in safe mode.
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install

Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!

Laptop goes into loop upon startup...

How did you manually configure it to go into safe mode? Did you edit boot.ini? if so try editing this back to normal. You could try hitting F8 on startup and doing a different Safe Mode startup to break the loop. From there you may be able to get it stable enough.

Another option would be to make a Bart PE boot disk and use that to edit Boot.ini
