It may be a corrupt windows indtallation, boot the XP CD and select Install Windows, Choose the "Repair" option in subsequent screen. May take a while, and you need to activate it again, but it usually fixes the problem for me.

Help my hp dv2000 just keeps restarting??


Hi,

As the computer is working in safe mode, it is clear that operating system files are corrupt.

Perform a repair installation, if it is Windows XP.

For Vista or Windows 7, you can perform system restore from recovery console. To launch recovery console, insert the disc- restart the computer and boot into the disc. Choose repair in the options tab, then choose system restore from the list.

Regards,

Nags

You should be able to boot XP from an install CD and perform a repair install (not a complete install) which will not affect your existing files.

You'll need to enter your BIOS and ensure that your PC is set to boot from CD, then restart your PC with the disc in the disc drive. After a period of loading, it will give the option to repair install on the installation screen. Choose that option, then follow the onscreen prompts and allow the install to finish before rebooting (rebooting may be automatic, depending on your version). After repair install, ensure that all updates are current.

My computer willnot restart after signing in


Install winXP on another partion. Transfer your imp files to a different partition. Restart and reinstall the OS on C drive. After successful installation by only deleting the system files, your MS Office will still be there. If u have kept a backup of all files(i.e. complete installation and not typical) then try uninstalling fro the Control Panel and u will get the option to modify, repair or uninstall the software. Click repair & enjoy...sodeep

Won't complete booting


Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.

MY LABTOP KEEPS SHUTING DOWN. I TURN IT ON IT SHUTDOWN AUTOMATICALLY AND THEN RESTARTS.


Does the laptop POST? does it boot up windows? or do the lights go on.... then off.... then on... etc?

if it starts booting windows then restarts itself then there is probably a problem with your windows install, it is crashing and that automatically restarts the pc.

If the lights keep flashing you probably have a hardware failure (motherboard)
