When i turn on my lap top,it starts to boot up on windows xp but then goes to black screen with help menu.It says we apologize for inconvience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped respondin, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you arent sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
And then menu.

Tips for a great answer:
Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows, you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.
To get into the Windows 2000 and XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use yourarrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode- 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

it is struggling to find the boot.ini, you can try pressing F8 when it's booting up and then you should get into safe mode, when in select last known good configuration and then press enter for a reboot.
If you still cannot get into windows you will need to perform a system repair, borrow a friends XP disc, but use the key code normally on the underneath of notebooks of your own system if you have one, then set your cdrom as first boot device in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) and then insert the disc, then press enter to boot from cdrom and press R for repair when prompted.
