You have corrupt or deleted windows files or possibly a hardware error. The first thing is to try a repair using a Windows XP CD that came with your system.
XP REPAIR INSTALL
1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below. This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer: To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup: do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
7. You will need to apply Windows updates after this procedure.
If you added any exta hardware means kindly remove it and boot the computer Then you try boot by selecting the option of Boot using last known good configuration. If the boot is successful then you can boot later booting without any problem.
If boot is not successful and this problem is happened after installing any software or driver software means boot in safe mode by pressing f8 key and uninstall it
Hi, Prepare to Diagnose the Computer Perform the following actions to prepare the computer for troubleshooting a startup problem.
1. Remove the battery and AC adapter from the notebook. 2.Remove any optical disks (CD or DVD), and disconnect any external devices or peripherals such as USB devices, printers, docking stations etc. 3.Plug the AC adapter directly into a functioning wall socket. 4.Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
NOTE:After the battery, optical media and peripherals are removed, the Notebook PC may startup normally. If this occurs see Windows starts after the battery, optical media and peripherals are removed .
Symptoms and Resolutions When the notebook stops responding or displays an error message, let me know what symptom that most closely resembles what is seen on the Notebook PC screen.
* Screen is blank with no cursor or text *An error message is displayed on a black background *An error message is displayed on a blue background *PC stops responding on a red Compaq or blue HP logo screen *PC Stops responding on the Windows logo screen * The Microsoft Windows 'Advanced Options Menu' is displayed * PC stops responding with a blinking cursor is displayed in the upper left corner of a black screen. *Password is requested but password is forgotten or lost. *Microsoft Windows starts, but a 'serious error' message is displayed that prompts you to send an error report to Microsoft for evaluation. * Microsoft Windows starts , but the PC stops responding or restarts automatically *Display is very dim during and after startup *Microsoft Windows starts, but runs abnormally slow
While you are trying to boot up, before the Windows logo comes up, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Then try to use the option "Last known good configuration". If that one does not work, try to go to the safe mode option
Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.
In fact, your computer is restarting by itself after a problem. On Windows 98/2000 the blue screen was sitting there until you rebooted the computer. Windows Xp reboot the computer sometimes even without showing any error message.
The thing is, if it reboots even if you select Safe mode, something may be wrong in your hardware (i.e. your memory or hard drive).
I would bet on a memory failure but it's hard to be sure unless you boot your computer with a memtest CD, you can find it for free the internet and select your CD as booting device when the computer starts.
If you cant do that yourself, you can bring it to a local computer store or anyone with good computer repairing skills.
If you need more help with this, let me know
