    All I know is that everytime I reboot it goes to a screen that says I have an internal disk problem then it starts checking all the files and there are so many unreadable files that it takes a long time to go through before it gets into windows.

Have you tried tis

  1. Start the computer, and then press the F8 key when Windows begins to start. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.
  2. Use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then click OK.
  3. If a start menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then click OK

Rebooting problem


If you are running Windows, and you are booting/crashing constantly, There could be many causes to this, but most likely your hard drive is failing. It is hard to say without seeing it in person, but to me it sounds like a new hard drive is in order. If you think it is a software issue, you can do a fresh install of Windows before purchasing a new hard drive to see if that clears up your problems.

Windows xp desktop boot problem


Hi utility,

Try this, it may work for you. What I’m going to suggest is entering the DOS environment and making necessary changes to get your pc up and running.

- Reboot> At reboot watch for DOS screen option “enter setup” via a F button option. You have to watch closely because on some pc’s this option goes by quick, so be ready to act. Once in the DOS environment navigate to “boot options” choose safe mode . Save changes and exit. When your os is up go immediately to system restore: Click Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date before your issue arose.>click next/continue and wait for system to restore. Reboot, and enter DOS environment once more and go to boot options and choose “Normal boot”>save changes and exit and you should be done. I hope this helped or at least gave you some ideas for further investigation.

Blue screen of death


Choose last known good configuration first. If that does not work try to go in safe mode. Once in safe mode try to do a system restore n if successful, it will work in the normal mode too. If does not go info safe mode then PC restore is the only option. If the partition which contains pc restore utility also is corrupted then reinstall windows.
