Question about HP Computers & Internet
Formatting and reinstalling your operating system would be easier than finding the registry error or other problem causing this. One solution might be to run ccleaner

SOURCE: PC won't Start windows normally
You can attempt to undo this through the use of System Restore.
I am going to assume you are on Windows XP, So start your computer in safe mode without networking.
Once you are in the desktop you are going to use System Restore. Choose a date in time on your computer before the incident happened.
For more information on the system restore utility go here:
Note : If you have Windows Vista ,read about this utility here:

In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions

alright, i can help you.
First, do you have you XP CD?
You will need one, any one, or the instaltion disk that came with it that has the recovery files.
1. put xp disk in cd drive, reboot and boot from CD. You may have to hit F12 to get to the select boot device screen.
2. once the cd boots it should go into the blue winxp install screen and start loading.
3. once its done, press " R" it should be an option for repair.
4. allow system to do its thing and it will go to a command prompt. If it asks for admin password, do so and hit enter.
5. You should now be at the C:\ command prompt. Typ exactly: chkdsk C: /p and hit enter.
It should run a system disk check and repair missing files.
6. once done, type EXIT and hit enter, then when it restarts, remove the disk and when it gets to the black and white asking to choose startup. just hit Enter and it should work fine.
Let me know if it doesnt work and we can try something else.
