Question about Compaq (261671-001) Motherboard
Turned it off, system working fine, now it won't boot even in safe mode. I am thinking that there is a way to over ride and be able to do a system recovery. I have tried F8 and the system continues to turn on and off repeatedly and rapidly.
If the system was able to enter the desktop and
restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or
but if it didn't enter the OS desktop...cause might be the boot loader or MBR is damage..
worth a try:
Run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
