My Windows BOOTS HALF WAY

My Windows XP professional SP 2 boots half way and reboots by itself. I have installed a new motherboard and have to struggle to get windows installed. Now that the windows is successfully installed, the system begins the booting process but restarts on its on after the windows logo page is displayed. Please what might be the cause and also the solution for this problem? Be informed that, I have not attached any other new hardware to the computer. Waiting for help. Thanks

    Can you get into safe mode at least by pressing F8 when XP starts and you see XP logo screen? Try and let me know if its still reboots or you are able to get into safe mode? Jamil

It seems you have a flawed Windows installation. I know how boring and frustrating it can be, but it appears your only choice is to reinstall the OS again. Did you delete the partition prior to the new install? That's the best way to ensure you have a brand spanking new system. I would suggest you go that route next time you attempt to do it.
Good luck!

Dear Sir,

Please check the RAM put a new RAM in your RAM slot and check it. If you're facing a virus problem go to http://xviruslab.blogspot.com and download Quick Heal Anti Virus as per your requirement and do a normal complete system scan if that doesn't solved your problem then do a native boot scan.

Bye Bye

Pc not boting


you need to run the Windows XP recovery console.. Should be on the XP CD..
Configure your BIOS to boot order your CD ROM drive first.. Have the disk in
the CD drive when you reboot, and choose the Recovery console from the menu..
Once it's loaded, and it asks which Windows Installation you would like to
access, choose the right one (usually # 1), then enter the ADMINISTRATOR
password then you'll be at a command prompt... There, you can view the
directory of the C: and the C:\windows folders, as well as the contents of
the XP disk in your CD drive.. you'll need to copy the "NTLDR.dll" file to
the Root directory, usually C:\ .. Reboot, if no succes you have to reinstall windows again.
Please make a copy of the 25 digit code.

Here you can download all the drivers

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=181558&si=3c37af981ca3324988fee5ce29463212&sp=1

The file needs to be unziped

Good luck

How to convert window 7 to window xp?


Sorry for this answer but you cannot convert back Windows. You only are able to Upgrade but you can't rollback.
You have to backup all of your files on your system drive and then reboot your machine while you are inserted the Windows XP CD into your drive.
Boot with it and Format your system drive and then install Windows XP on that drive. But if you want to keep your 7, you can Install XP on a different drive and then by using Vista BootPro program, repair your boot because Vista and 7 are using a new version of boot manager and XP uses the older one.

Windows xp will not boot


If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Been having this problem for 2 months.. computer is turned off... have been rebooting from CD in drive for 1 year... harddrive tired and cannot boot up by itself... lately cannot get to any Recovery mode,...


If you have a Windows XP CD, follow these steps.

1. Boot from the CD and start the installer
2. Choose to install onto the already formatted partition with the unbootable Windows, but opt to leave the existing filesystem and any other OSes alone. Choosing this will require you to create another folder for Windows to avoid writing over the existing installation. I usually call the new folder "WINXP."
3. Install Windows as you would normally, you'll need a Product Key but you can actually use your personal key on someone else's computer with no danger to you losing it or being accused of piracy, I'll explain this later.
4. Boot the NEW Windows XP install. Do not "Activate" or "register," you're going to be deleting this copy of Windows from the machine if all goes well.
5. Edit the BOOT.INI on the hard drive from the original installation of Windows with the corrupted HAL. This file should be in C:\ (may be hidden)

Sample BOOT.INI for XP Pro
Microsoft wrote:[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT

6. Go to C:\WINXP\system32\hal.dll (where "WINXP" is the folder you installed the second copy of Windows XP) and copy it from the new Windows to C:\WINDOWS\system32\hal.dll (or wherever you installed Windows XP originally, I use "WINDOWS" but some people use strange folder names for their XP) and overwrite any file there. The new hal.dll is uncorrupt and newly regenerated. The file is specific to each machine's hardware configuration and we needed to rebuild it. The installer did that for us with the new installation.
7. Try rebooting your computer to see if you can get into your OLD Windows installation. If you can, congratulations!
8. DELETE the "WINXP" folder (or wherever you put your new Windows install).

Biostar GF 7100-M7 windows xp trouble


Do you see any text at all when booting up? If so, try pressing F8 on reboot to get to the Windows Boot menu. It's not real apparent when you are supposed to do this, so once the system gets past the initial Power on Self Test, start tapping it. Select Safe Mode and see if your display loads. Set your video settings to something safe and simple like 1024 x 768. Reboot to normal Windows and begin bumping your video settings up from there until you get them where you want them.

Leave the other drive in; no the other windows will not cause problems cos its not set as boot 'C' drive, you can deletewindoes off the drive or format it within windows.

I don't think that the drivers you installed are the cause of the boot problem it may be the other drive, remove old drive and try again, but make sure in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) it is correctly recognising the new drive.

delete this path:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
