Hi,
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.

    Hi,



    No Problem.

    I,ll keep my eye on this Post.

    Unfortunately someone rated it before you had a chance to.

    But it has been reported To Fixya, as i do not believe that anything posted by myself is inappropriate.

    I will continue to resolve your problem, and may the perpertraitor of the bogus rating, be hung-drawn and quartered.

Hangs on startup


Try booting in safe mode then run a chkdisk scan to see if it shows errors. To boot in safe mode power the computer completely down...wait a few seconds...when you power it back up keep tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. If done correctly a black advanced boot screen will appear with a choice to boot in safe mode. If you are able to boot in safe mode, it's likely that your hdd isn't the problem. It has to do with something in your startup programs. To disable some unwanted startup items Click Start--> RUN-> in the box type msconfig then click on the tab that says startup and uncheck any unwanted items. Reboot the machine and see if it boots regular.

Laptop won' boot up.


The blue screen means the system is experiencing a fatal error... a error from which it cant recover.... so while booting press f8 and boot using safe mode... then analyse the startup programs of your system using Start->Run and then typing msconfig in the window that appears and then going to the startup tab... one of your latest installed program might be misfunctioning....

Start up problem


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.
