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 BOOTS HALF WAY


Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.

My computer only boots successfully after a forced shutdown.


Is it possible that you have installed winxp twice? You say that you installed XP Pro sp3 was that an upgrade from xp home? if so then you will need to uninstall one or both versions of XP then install only one.. Make sure you backup any important files first though

Just installed new mobo (ecs 6100sm-m) and boot up issue


from my experience, you will need to format when changing the hardware you have changed. are there files on the drive that you need? if so id recommend putting your old motherboard back in to backup the drive then rebuild and format. thats if it wasnt faulty to start off with.

hope it helps

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.

Windows XP SP2 will not boot after installing new SATA hard drive


Your system thinks the "second" drive has precedence over the first ( your boot drive ) try switching the SATA cables between the two drives. There also might be a BIOS setting under Boot Order, sometimes you have to drill down to get to it for a particular drive.

PC keeps on restarting


Power supply can be your issue , when windows boots from CD it a mear dos-mode boot , If it was motherbaord problem it wouldn't boot at all . If you move power supply to test the motherboard issue just make sure it enough power to boot the other motherboard ( some pwer supplies can boot all motherboards )
