Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
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.
(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.
