If it brings you to this screen it should also have an option to start up with the last known configuration that worked. Have you tried this? The only other thing I can think of is to boot up into Safe Mode with Networking, which will allow you to still go online, and run Windows Update. Install everything it tells you to, except language packs, and see if that helps. What Operating System do you have?

Good Luck,

Log into the Administrator account(password may be rquired)

Once you're in Safe mode with networking download:

rkill.exe save to your desktop and double click.A command prompt window will flash and its done.

Then download Malwarbytes:

Once Malwarebytes has been installed run a full scan

How to run a Full scan with Malwarebytes:

If your PC does not shut down in safe mode it sounds like Malware.

Good luck!

How do I get into safe mode on HP mini 1000? XP OS

To get into safe mode on any computer running Windows you press F8 before or right after the Windows splash screen comes up. You will have three options for safe mode:

Safe Mode: Only the absolutely necessary drivers load.

Safe Mode with Networking: Same as above plus the ability to use the internet/network access

Safe Mode with Command Prompt: Boots into safe mode with a Command Prompt for command line work.

Hope this helps.

Loops on the "Windows did not start successfully" screen. No mater wich option I pick. Running Xp Home. Also is there a backup on the Aspire?

Sounds like it could be a corrupt hard disk. Try the following. as soon as the computer boots tap F8 continually until it brings you to the safe mode menu, which will allow you to boot to a recovery version of windows. Try booting in to all three safe mode, safe mode with networking or safe mode (alternate shell). If one of them load then open up a command prompt by going start>run and typing CMD (the "alternate shell" option will bring this up to begin with). Once this window is loaded type the following "chkdsk c: /r". It will say it cannot lock the drive, do you want to schedule a disk check for the next boot, press y to answer yes, then reboot the computer and let it scan. If you cannot get to any of the safe mode options then you'll need either a windows CD or ubuntu netbook edition on a USB pen to fix it, let me know how you get along.

p.s. I dont think the aspire has a recovery partition, did it come with any media to reinstall it?
