Cause:-
The reason why your computer is responding like this is because you have recently installed a driver (that was unapproved or flaky in technical terms it was not signed by Microsoft to be genuine) or it can be a software.
Solutions:-
(1)Restart your PC and start hitting the F8 key again and again you will see a list on a black screen. In that screen you should select "Last known good configuration" Select it and your life will go to normal. But as you said nothing has happened
(2)Try this solution. Restart your PC again and go through the same procedure again Pressing F8 repeatedly and On the black screen list select "Start in SAFE MODE". You will see the computer booting with minimum resources. Goto Start button. On the pop up start menu click "Control Panel"and in the opening window select "Add Remove Programs" and then uninstall any program that you have recently installed before your computer crashed you can check the dates also. Similarly if you have not installed any software or program. Then you might have installed a driver. To uninstall a driver go to "My Computer" (in XP)or "Computer"(in Vista and 7) right click it and in the menu click the "Manage" tab and go to "Device manager" on the opening window. Device manager can also be found in control panel. open the device manager. You will find all the Installed drivers on the PC just remove or uninstall by browsing and right clicking them and in the menu selecting "uninstall" that on which you have installed most recently. Restart your computer and the computer should work fine and you should only use drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft no other.
(3)If the above solutions fail, do one thing go to "Start" on the menu click "Accessories" and then go to "System tools" in the System tools go to "System Restore" and then follow the instruction of the wizard make sure that you have a "System restore point" already created before you continue with the wizard. The Computer will take the Windows image (or as it is technically called restore point) and restores your system without affecting your data and stuff.

Good Luck!

If you added any exta hardware means kindly remove it and boot the computer
Then you try boot by selecting the option of Boot using last known good configuration.
If the boot is successful then you can boot later booting without any problem.

If boot is not successful and this problem is happened after installing any software or driver software means boot in safe mode by pressing f8 key and uninstall it

HELP! Laptop will not boot up!


Try an XP repair:
Boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.
