Why my windows wont boot up past the wallpaper no icons nothin

Could be any number of issues, try booting up in safe mode. If it boots up in safe mode, shut it down by selecting the shut-down option, then try rebooting. If it still does the same go back to safe "mode with networking." Update your anti virus and scan. Then update and scan for malware. Reboot again. If still not going go safe mode again, run fixdisk, if that does not fix it, try system restore to an earlier time and see what happens.if that doesn't work download a program called HDD Regenerator and run it from a CD or USB, it may fix it.

Went to misconfig to select safe mode boot safe mode starts but window comes up stating no safe mode and is rebooting and it just does this over and over and i cannot get back to sselect misconfig to...


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

The reason you cant get past the restart is because by selecting safeboot on the boot.ini tab, you have now set your computer to boot straight into safe mode (even though you knew your computer couldnt boot to safe mode) :)

Were you having trouble before? Why were you trying to get into safe mode in the first place? it may help with the solution. Were you getting shutdowns or blue screens? Ram problems can cause all sorts of issues.

Do you have your windows cd? If you do then follow the instructions on the link below to replace your boot.ini. file…

Let me know how you get on with that and we will go from there :) (just edit your original post with added detail)

Restarts computer in loop at 5-8 minutes of boot

Please try install XP SP3 in safe mode. Then check whether you have the latest Graphics Card Driver. It seems like some driver issue as it reboots only in Normal mode. Since safe mode runs on minimalset of hardware drivers.
Secondly, there may be a corrupt file that caused reboot. Spend a night and schedule bad sector check - Right click on system drive, Tools tab, Error Checking -> Check Now, tick both boxes then Start. It will schedule scan on next reboot. Then reboot to confirm it starts checking HD.

Safe mode

You can also force the system into safe mode. You click on startup and type in msconfig. Click the general tab and select diags and the system will reboot to safe mode. Change it back to normal to get your system out of safe mode.
