Windows XP in a loop

Hi, I have re-installed windows XP service pack 2 on my PC and registered it again. Now everytime I try to boot up, it says register windows, and when I click on Yes, it says it is registered. It does the same thing over and over. Please help as I am totally lost here.

I can boot up in safe mode with no problem.

Thanks

How to setup a new xp windows


Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart


note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system


note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded


your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd


if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk

if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3

How can i install Xp spk2 into dell latitude e6400


Are you talking about Windows XP Service Pack 2? If so just go to microsoft's site to download and install it.

Service Pack 3 is the latest for Windows XP so you might as well download and install it.

Try the link below.

I rebooted my operating system windows xp-sp2.now in my leptop the com port is not showing.instead of this only bluetooth port is detecting .how i will solve this problem??


I would suggest that you run diagnostics on your pc to isolate the issue and identify if it is caused by a hardware failure or caused by a software glitch on the system.

You can also try to repair the OS if the problem lies within the platform itself.

Please follow instructions indicated herein....

XP REPAIR INSTALL

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the
boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation
for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the
options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the
Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery
Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP
installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing
Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and
press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options,
read Warning #2 below!!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.
Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your
applications and settings will remain intact.

Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet
when asked, enable the XP firewall
[ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the
firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click
the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the
Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.

7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP
installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original
pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove
SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates isssued after the
service packs will need to be reapplied.

Service Pack 2 link. Copy and paste link into your browser.

2. When the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Removal Wizard starts, click Next.

Method 3: Use the System Restore and select a restore point prior to SP3

Start up problem


It appears that Service Pack 2 did not completely install. Try to boot into safe mode (F8 at startup). If you can, go to control panel, then add/remove programs. Scroll all the way down, select Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click "remove".

After it's removed, you will need to reboot, but the system should come up normally after that.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)

Screen goes off


Try booting into safe mode.. press F8 before the windows screen, and select Safe Mode as the boot option. If that is a temporary fix, then reinstall the driver, and make sure your Hertz settings are correct!

Continuous loop and cannot charge battery


Windows service pack 2 is a huge update and takes a long time to complete, I will suggest walking away from your computer and having lunch, go to sleep, watch a movie, etc... while the update finishes. If you have already done this with the same result? I would look for a Windows XP SP2 disk (XP with service pack 2 integrated) and try that. Otherwise Microsoft sent out many disks containing the SP2 update itself on a disk, and you could try the SP2 update from one of those (if you can find one) after your clean install.
Good luck.
