Good day. I suggest for you to reinstall windows and use the repair options. Usually software encounter errors or some files might get corrupted causing your computer not to boot up properly. The repair option in Windows XP will help you to fix those issue. here are the steps to follow:
1. Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software
problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard
drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).
2. Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data
before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these
instructions your data will be perfectly safe.
3. Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your
computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen,
press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
4. A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.
5. When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following
"Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows
XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.
6. Then press F8 to continue
7. Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You
will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh
copy of Windows XP.
8. Then just choose repair option to repair your Windows Xp
9 Then it should work. If iin any case that will not solve the issue, you might try to install fresh copy on Windows Xp
Hope this information will help you resolve your issue. Have a great day.
Just boot from the xp professional cd and run the recovery console. Download
the operating system from this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en or if you have it, install it using the procedure below:Boot From the Windows XP CD
You must boot from your XP . Please make sure it is
the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer
(ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM
and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows
XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)
you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.
Step 3: System repair steps
A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.
simply let the CD load without pressing F6.
Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be
asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console.
Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.
Choose F8 to continue.
Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP
installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation
or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.
If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to
repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too
That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing
itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and
settings. Just follow the prompts
On most computers you will have the option of restoring windows on one of the F key options, when it's booting up. The trick is to get to the Repair Computer option screen (it's different on different computers but does the same thing). If you can get the Restore Option before windows sets up, you'll fix this problem. On my Toshiba F2 and F12 are reserved for options, but I also get other options pressing F4 through F8 as it's booting- not sure which key works, so I hit all of them. Keep working that angle, and I'm sure you'll get it working again. Good luck, and hope this helps.
