Re: start up problem

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.
