I have been using my Windows XP Media Center for over 2 years as a TV. I was not treating it as a proper computer as it is in my living room. I was just using the Power button to turn off the system. Sorry for all the people reading this! Whenever I turn on my computer, a error message name or also known as the Windows Recovery Boot Up Warning. It shows, the Safe mode, Safe Mode with Command prompt, Safe mode with Networking, Last known good configuration, and start windows normally. Whenever I try to click one of these options, the system boots up, I log in, and the system goes down everytime and if I do this process again, the system will not respond when I click the power button. Whenever I press the power button before, a blue light comes out. But now it just has no light. When I take out the power adapter for 10-20 seconds, it works, but the error message comes out and when I click any one, the system just goes down immediately. Please help me!

Reinstall windows system is very easy to to operate but without having a Bootable Disk or that Windows XP Media Center Edition Disc, i think you have to buy a new one or Genuine Windows XP Media Center Edition. It's in the market. And also if you friends that are using any Compaq Presario which they have the WINDOWS CD. Borrow it to install in your LAPTOP. At least XP Media Center Edition they use. There is another options on how to put operating system on your laptop. To gather any information or to do at least we have any ideas how to get it. No need for any Serial #. Genuine Windows Media Center Edition have it's own LICENSE or CD KEY. Hope this might help you my idea. Good luck!
the following id taken from my own XP media centre laptop.
line 1 [boot loader] line 2 timeout=30 line 3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS line 4 [operating systems] line 5 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
ignore the "line 1,2,3 etc" I added them for clarity the formatting in this answer pane messes up the last line.
also before you get to edit the start up file make sure that the default operating system listed is the sae as line 5 starting from the "
try going into the bios and changeing the boot device to hard drive. More iformation is needed though to help you ie os version, what you done just before this problem had arisen , brand name of your computer. let me know im sure i can assist you and try not to get frustrated these things happen more often than you know.

Your files will remain intact, if you select to leave the hard-drive As it is ( rather Than Format it ) or setup on a different Partition.
