Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then
choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe
mode options. If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery. If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.
Several things you can try. Roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8
during boot and choose Safe Mode).
Win 7 -
Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a
date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
In Safe Mode try
disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type
MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to
load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources
while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load,
but when only you initiate.

To boot in Safe Mode, as soon as the computer begins booting tap the F8 key repeatedly.
You should get a menu to choose from.
If there select Safe Mode with networking.
If you can get that far, try System Restore for an earlier date.
If you can't get into safe mode watch as the comp boots and see if it says something like "For Recovery Press <One of the F keys>. Somesystems allow a partial recovery that keeps your documents intact. If you end up doing a full recovery, you lose everything.
Somehow you have activated the startup sequence request in the msconfig utility. Start up your laptop, press F8 till you come to the boot sequence options menu, select Safe Mode, hit ENTER wait, then when in safe mode, a warning wndow appears just informing you that you have started in Safe Mode ... bla bla bla... Click OK. Then press start button, go to Run.. and in the dialogue box type msconfig and hit ENTER. In the msconfig utility window check on the dot next to Normal Startup - Loda all device drivers & services. Click apply & Ok then Restart your unit. I think this should solve your problem.
try using a WINDOWS ME edition startup floppy disc. I had good results with this version. I can send if you want. This will allow disc access to investigate the problem. You will still have XP on disc.
