If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up towindows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way tosolve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cdor dvd to installwindows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windowsalready exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.Whenthe Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

ifnot then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can eitherenter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you powerup the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press inorder to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Oneswindows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, theyare at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acerhttp://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all otherbrands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to theright place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
