Question about Seagate 9w2874-500 200 GB Hard Drive
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.
I can get into f10 and f1 but i dont know what to do? i tried all the menu buttons, any help or advice much appretiated.
Tips for a great answer:

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode with command prompt then type in chkdsk/f/r which will scan for and and attempt repair of bad files and bad sectors on hard drive
you should have no input while chkdsk utility is in progress any input might further damage your computer or
Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue and then replace the file.
Type the following command and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
hope this helps
