    Power the laptop off completely and turn it back on. As it starts, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you get a choice to boot into Safe Mode. This will load it with minimal drivers. I am a little hesitant to offer this advice as I feel more strongly that your OS has been corrupted and needs to be reinstalled. The Safe Mode try is just to ascertain that it isn't a hardware/driver related problem. I am assuming it was okay up until this point? Let me know the results. I can get back to you quickly.

I am unable to get windows xp to load onto my ASUS A2500H anymore. Everything was working fine for a long time, even with an external HDD attached until today. All of a sudden the laptop died and when...


The best you can try is to remove the external HDD and see if computer boots..

If it does, you know where the problem is..

If it doenst, reboot computer, start tapping F8, if you get advance boot options, try to boot computer with Save Mode, Perform system restore from save mode.

If the above doesnt work, you need to perform repair installtion of Windows XP.

"error loading operating system"


Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

Computer turns on, wont load windows, then goes to a blank screen


When a PC boots first it checks all of the hardware to ensure all is working properly. The stage two of that is turning it over to the operating system. When it is turned over to the operating system the first thing it looks for is the Master Boot Record which is a small program on your hard drive that starts your operating system. If it cannot find the Master Boot Record or if the boot record is corrupt then the operating system will not load. In order to fix put the WIndows operating system disk into your CD ROM and let it boot to the CD ROM. Allow it to load for a few minutes and it will eventually ask you if you want to proceed with the installation or "repair". Choose repair. This is one option to fix your boot record.
Second option is to use Recovery Console. Put the Windows CD in the CD ROM. Click on Start and then Run. In the run box type D:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons (where D is your CD ROM drive). Follow the instructions on the screen. You will be at the command line, type in FIXBOOT. This will also fix your master boot record. Follow these procedures anytime you have an operating system load error use the Recovery CD as your last resort. Hope this helps.
