Question about PC Desktops
Does it have the options for starting in safe mode, but no matter what, it reboots?
If so, use a winxp cd ( asuming you have winxp installed) and boot from cd like your going to install windows. When it loads it should have an option screen thats blue with white text.
Select R for repair. it will close and go to the command prompt. Then type in ( chkdsk C: /P ) exactly.
Let it run the repair and when done, type: Exit or just reboot, remove disk and let it boot normally. when that screen comes up with white text saying to select boot option, just pick, Start windows normally.
It should then work fine and go into windows.
If this fixes it, then some how your boot files got erased and the repair fixed them. This happens alot with Dell computers. Its random and usually happens after installing something. So remember how to do this in case it happens again,
