Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I keep getting a black screen that has instructions to start in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, safe mode with network, normal. etc.I have tried clicking on all suggestions and still come back to the same screen. I can hear a ticking coming from computer while it attempts to start. Is my hard drive gone?
If the system cannot start on safe mode probably your operating system has gone bad, to check your hard disk you can go use your windows xp disk, to boot from it press f12 choose cd rom keep on tapping enter and dont mind the message that you need to press any key to boot from cd, and then when you are on the welcome to setup page press r for recovery console, once you are there try to type in chkdsk /p and after type in fixboot and press y, and restart your system, if that wont work then your hard drive is bad.
