Try booting into safe mode:

start up your system and tap on the F8 key.

This may allow you to get into windows and see what the problem is.

click Start-> Run -> type MSCONFIG

in the system configuration window you can disable all startup items and services, restart the PC and see if it works normally.

Then you can turn on a few at a time to find out if something is gumming up your system.

My laptop that has window xp just keep on rebooting and it just stuck on safe mode and dosnt want to go anywhere but reboot every time


It sounds like you have automatically reboot on error turned on which is Windows defualt. (dumb idea Microsoft). When you get the black and white screen that gives you several options to start your computer, one will be to turn off automatic restart.

Your computer will boot and you will get an blue error screen. That error will help you determine what is broken.

An alternative is to try last known good configuration, but I've never had much luck with that option.

My computer only boots successfully after a forced shutdown.


Is it possible that you have installed winxp twice? You say that you installed XP Pro sp3 was that an upgrade from xp home? if so then you will need to uninstall one or both versions of XP then install only one.. Make sure you backup any important files first though

The screen turns black and stays like that


Normally it's because the resolution is set too high for the monitor. This has happened to me when I switch a computer from a flat screen to a old "biggy-size" monitor.

try rebooting the computer and BEFORE you see the windows splash screen, start pushing the F8 key...this should bring up a menu...select VGA Mode...it won't be pretty, but once you're in..right click on the desktop and change the solution (try 800x600). restart the machine...that should work.

HELP!! (dell precision 340) im getting 4 screens when i turn on m


Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
