Can't boot. When powering up, PC starts to load OS (WinXP) but then stops and starts over again. It just keeps doing this. No trouble indications or messages.

Simpliest solution is to do a system restore. Reload Windows.

Some people think this is lazy tech work so ill give you a few other options.

1.run a check disk from a boot disk
2.reload the windows files and hope the problem is just a missing file

there are probably a few other things you can try, I just cant think of what they are right now.

Hello,
Some of the solutions that you can try are
1 - Boot in Safe Mode....switch on the notebook, press F8 after machine starts.....if you get the options, chose Safe Mode and then once u get into the Desktop panel switch off and switch on again...now let it boot in normal mode.....
2 Else you have to have the option of loading the defaults from the rescue disk in the above process, insert the Resuce disk that you created and start.
3 The final option is to Reformat the Disk and install the WIN XP / Vista OS...the best is install WinXP...to do that insert the WinXP disk and switch on the machine again....follow on screen instructions
Do a partition of your disk, Format and install XP in C: and leave D: or E: to save your critical Data files....

Try to delete the partition of your HDD and then create another one an format it to NTFS. Set the bios to boot from CD, Once the setup disk for XP loads, Try to follow the steps I provided.

For the Best OS, you need to make sure the computer is able to get the requirements for certain OS.
For WinXP atleast 256 MB RAM(recomended 512mb),For Vista 512MB(recommended 1gb)
