Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
A message occurs evertime I turn on my computer, stating that Windows did not start successfully. I get a couple of options regarding the problem but none of them do anything. I can choose to set up through: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last known good configuration, and start windows normally. Whenever I select one of the prompts, a Windows XP page briefly loads, then a blue screen flashes, and the Windows errors message appears again. None of the start up solutions render the problem, what should I do? I can either enter
Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.

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
