Question about Computers & Internet
When turning on my desktop, the screen goes as far as the windows xp logo. It will not continue to the windows desktop. Once it hits the windows logo, it restarts back to that point.
Do you have your original windows software disk?
you can go to safe mode by pressing f8 during the boot sequence.. tap f8 a few times from the second the computer starts to boot.
It is possible you have a virus or something that damaged the master boot record.
Here is a tutorial on recovering the MBR:
To access this, I booted the system from a Windows XP CD, waited for files to be loaded into memory, then selected R for recovery console, selected my Windows XP installation and entered the administrator password.
Once inside the Windows XP recovery console, I tried the fixboot command. This didn’t seem to make any difference on reboot, so I tried again with fixmbr. After another reboot, Windows XP was up and running (some Internet sites suggest fdisk /mbr but that’s not a recovery console command under Windows XP).
