System wont boot

My system wont boot, turn it on and it gets to the Windows XP screen and reboots, its a constant loop. Even in safe mode. I have run chkdisk and repaired any errors, does this mean my hard drive is bad or could their be another explanation?

    I turned the computer on one day and it just started continuously rebooting (it would get as far as starting windows screen) I finally booted fro Windows XP CD and formatted the hard drive, reinstalled windows and checked the disk. Everything worked great until I was almost finished with all the windows upgrades and it started again

    are you getting a bsod (blue screen of death) just before it reboots ?

    and is that a new system build or this just happened out of the blue (pardon the pun).

    also any recent upgrades that you have made to the system ?

I have the same problem and it isn't your hard drive. I used two separate hard drives to test the theory. The first was bsod'ing at windows boot screen. Tried a repair and a clean install. It got so far as loading windows and died (no bsod). Used another brand new hard drive and did a clean install, it gets to the loading of windows and reboots. Both drives work like champs in other setups. If someone solves ur problem please post. Hope I helped narrow your issue some.

Compaq presario wont start up


Several things could cause this. First try eliminating a few potentials sources of the problem --unplug external devices from the computer like external hard drives, usb sticks, printers, external speakers, etc. and see if you can boot the computer normally. If you can boot normally, try rebooting into safe mode and then running chkdsk. You may have to tap F10 repeatedly during rebooting to get to option such as safe mode. Allow chkdsk to complete its run; that takes considerable patience. IF you need to know how to run chkdisk, you can look that up in the F1 help screen while in safe mode. Uninstall whatever software you installed just before the crash. Reboot and allow normal booting. BUT BACKUP your critical information immediately if you get a good boot!

IF that does not fix the problem, you might have to look into using the recovery partition. That will likely allow a return to factory defaults, either with an erasure of your data or not, depending upon which option you decide upon. If all is erased, you may have to reinstall a considerable amount of software and reactivate windows via the internet. How do you get to the recovery partition? That is probably an option popping up when you hit F10. "R" for recovery.

Disable safe mode


Which operating system and do you have Norton antivirus ???
Turn Off Safe Mode

You rebooted your PC at least 10 times now, and still it refuses to start in anything other than Safe Mode.
Your many attempts to perform a system restore have yet to be victorious. It just will not boot up normally.
According to Microsoft, if you have Norton Antivirus 2001 installed on your computer, it is the root of the problem. Microsoft suggests you disable it.

Restart your computer. Let it load completely in Safe Mode.
Press "Run" on your Start menu.
Once you see the Open box, enter into the provided text box: misconfig.
Then press "Enter" or Select "OK."
Select on the new dialog box that has appeared "Selective Startup."
Select "NAVAP.VxD" on the Static VxD tab.
Remove the check in the check box you now see.
Select "OK."
Remove the check in the check box next to Norton Auto Protect.
Select "OK."
Reboot your system and it will be in Normal Mode.
Turn Off Safe Mode in Windows XP
The purpose of booting your computer in safe mode is to resolve issues.
Only your basic, most dire drivers and programs will run to block viruses and surreptitious software from executing on your system.
But once the issue is resolved, you need to get back to the standard Windows mode. In order to turn off safe mode in Windows XP, you must go through the same steps that you took to turn it on.

Reboot your Windows system.
Press the "F8" key several times as soon as you see the first Windows XP logo appear on your screen as the computer is booting.
This will bring up a black screen that displays the "Windows Advanced Options Menu."
Press the down arrow button on your keyboard to scroll down the list.
Select "Start Windows Normally" and then hit "Enter."
Allow the system to boot.
Enter your Windows XP user password (if you set one) and log in as usual.

Unit wont start, gray screen then goes to a screen with options on how to start unit and then goes blank


Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Windows xp starts twice and on second boot wont load user settings


Does it just sit at a blue screen? Is there only one user profile on this system? It could be a bad user profile in which case you can try logging on as administrator (if that isn't the user account issue). Try taking it into safe mode or last good known boot and see how far you get. If you recently installed something software or hardware then it could be related to the installation.

Restarts computer in loop at 5-8 minutes of boot


Please try install XP SP3 in safe mode. Then check whether you have the latest Graphics Card Driver. It seems like some driver issue as it reboots only in Normal mode. Since safe mode runs on minimalset of hardware drivers.
Secondly, there may be a corrupt file that caused reboot. Spend a night and schedule bad sector check - Right click on system drive, Tools tab, Error Checking -> Check Now, tick both boxes then Start. It will schedule scan on next reboot. Then reboot to confirm it starts checking HD.

Windows XP will not boot


Hi there, my name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem.

It could be a number of problems.

1: Have you installed any new hardware or software? This can cause some conflictions. If there is any new hardware you have installed and your PC is constantly rebooting, then remove that hardware and try booting. If you have recently installed new software and getting the loop, then start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots windows. If you can access windows in safe mode, then uninstall any new software you may have added.

2: It could be you need a new power supply. They are very cheap to buy and I would recommend a qualified technician to install it for you

3: Your pc may be infected with a virus and has affected the boot file. Try to repair windows by using the windows xp disk. Insert the disk and run using the CD. You will then go through a few blue screens and press R to repair your windows xp installations

I hope this information has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or further problems
