Error window when starting windows xp

When the laptop starts, when windows is opening, an error message reads "sorry for the inconvenience , windows did not start sucessfully" I tried all options, "starting windows normally, safe mode, last known configuration" and at the end of the countdown, the screen continues quickly to another blue screen too fast to read, then the laptop restarts all over again....so the laptop, in a continous loop, keeps rebooting on its own. whats causing this and how do I fix it????

If CHKDSK /P doesn't resolve the issue, there is a very good chance the HDD is failing.

Your options are essentially to try a Windows Reinstall like mentioned above. If it resolves the issue great. If the Windows Install crashes or the install trys to recover lost allocation units, then the Hard Drive will need to be replaced.

    Insert your XP installation disk into an optical drive and boot up your computer.
    2. When you see a welcome screen, hit the R key on your keyboard. This will enter you into recovery mode with a DOS prompt.
    3. Now type chkdsk /p and hit Enter. This will launch a utility which will check for errors on your hard drive.
    4. After the process is done, type fixboot and hit Enter to repair any damaged boot files which may have become corrupted. When asked to say yes or no, type the Y key on your keyboard.
    5. Type exit and press the Enter key to reboot your computer.

    If all went well, you should now be able to boot back into Windows without a problem!
    PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPED



    GOOD LUCK

Why does my computer keep saying "(insert program name here).exe has encourtered a program and needed to close, we are sorry for any inconvenience" it's been doing that with a few games, including...


I suspect that one or more of the game programs you have loaded have not been tested for compatibility with Windows XP and may have corrupted the hard drive.

Run chkdsk /f (/f is for "fix") and XP will check and try to fix your hard drive the next time you start windows.

If the error messages persist, you will have to use add-remove peograms ro remove all your games and then (after running chkdsk /f again) see if the error messages stop.

If they do not, you are faced with a reload of XP and then only load programs that have been certified by MIcrosoft to run under XP.

Try going into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, click on the Media Center software, if listed, and see if it gives a choice to Change and/or Repair. You'll probably need your Windows CD if/when it prompts for it.

Windows start up failure


Sounds like you could have faulty RAM or your HD has bad read/write sectors on it. Difficult to say without swaping out parts. Take it to a shop so they can figure out what needs to be replaced.
