Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Windows does not start successfully

Lately, almost everytime I turn my computer on, it say:

Sorry for the inconvience but windows did not start successfully. This may be due to a hardware change

then it gives me four options to choose from including "Safe mode" and "start windows normally"

I do not know how to fix this problem.

Please help me!!!

Hello,
Boot to safe mode. Then log in as administrator. Open My Computer, rightclick on C drive. Click properties. Select Tools and then click Error Checking. Select (Automatically fix file system errors) and then click start.

It will ask that you restart the computer. Upon restart it will run a check disk and if there are any file system error that may be affecting your boot up problem, it will fix them. If that was the problem, it should start up after this process. If not then let me know so we can try something else.

Thanks,
Lolita

I would try to boot up in safe mode, then download glary utilities which is a free registry cleaner. Also doing a windows update would also be a good idea.

You must have come in contact with a virus. Does your friend have the capability of slaving your hard drive to his to remove your data. If so, then he or you can reinstale the operating system.

Laptop won't comeback on


Try safe mode.

On safe mode return the computer to an earlier date configuration.

At some point will ask if you want to do that. And say yes.

Make sure that if for some some reasons it asks you to restore the computer to factory settings, you should say no. I hope you can do this.
