Question about Computers & Internet
Its a 2004 model
Restoring Windows XP operating system can be performed in DOS mode if XP's system restore tool cannot be accessed because of booting issues or when the XP recovery CDs are unavailable. There are two steps to this procedure: first, the XP system restore tool must be accessed using the DOS menu and second, the actual XP system restore is performed.
Start the computer and press the F8 key when the manufacturer's logo appears but before the Windows XP logo appears. Scroll through the menu options using the down arrow key. Select "Safe mode with a Command prompt" and hit the Enter key. Type in the administrator ID and password. Hit "Enter." Type in this code in the command prompt box to access the XP system restore tool: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe. Hit "Enter." The XP system restore tool will open. b> How to Restore Windows XP b> Click "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time" when the XP system restore tool starts. Click "Next." Choose a restore point before your operating system began to malfunction. Click "Next" and "OK." Click "Next" to begin the XP restoration process. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the system restore tool, as this may damage the hard drive. The system restore tool will automatically restart the computer when it has finished restoring the operating system. Hope this helps.

You need to do a recovery using the recovery console. There is an option during startup, if you are running XP or later, to press F11 for emergency recovery.
Press F11 and choose the option to recover and backup.
This will backup all files and programs currently installed on your computer.
After the recovery process finishes, you will have to go through the process of setting up your computer, like you did when you first bought it.
After you are all setup again, it is a good idea to create recovery disks under the 'Start' menu, 'Recovery' option.

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.

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.

You need to repair your windows xp installation.
Insert the xp install cd and power off - then power on your pc.
If the screen says "press any key to boot from cd" then do that.
It takes a while until you get to choose options.
Choose the repair previous installation option by pressing the R key when prompted.
Follow the instructions on the screen and you should be fine.
