Question about Computers & Internet
My Compaq evo n1050v laptop is struggling to boot up. It gets as far as the XP Startup screen but then a blue screen of deatha appears and it restarts automatically.
Can anyone offer some advise on what to check / try?
Thanking you in advance!
Sure problem most likely lies With The operating System Or failing to initialise a device upon Boot-Up.
Start the computer up with your Windows XP Or System recovery Cds In The Drive. If the system will not allow you to do this, the bios settings will be to boot A: floppy C: Hard-Disk D: CD Rom. enter Bios F2 at boot. Change Only boot sequence settings to Top Or First Boot Device D: CDRom. Then C: Hard-Drive. ( Instructions Are Provided Within The Bios screen ) After you have made the changes, Save And Exit ( saving all changes to CMOS ) !!!!! Do Not Change Any Other settings!!!!!
Post back here if you get any on-screen error messages, once you,ve done This, And i,ll assist you further.

it is struggling to find the boot.ini, you can try pressing F8 when it's booting up and then you should get into safe mode, when in select last known good configuration and then press enter for a reboot.
If you still cannot get into windows you will need to perform a system repair, borrow a friends XP disc, but use the key code normally on the underneath of notebooks of your own system if you have one, then set your cdrom as first boot device in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) and then insert the disc, then press enter to boot from cdrom and press R for repair when prompted.
