Hello,
You will have to obtain a Windows Xp home edition cd. Boot to it and then select recovery console. Log into the c drive when it asks. Then enter the administrator password (if no password, just press enter). Then when you get the c:\windows prompt, type: chkdsk c: /r and press enter. This process will take about 15mins to 30 mins. When finished, type exit and then ctrl+alt+del to restart the computer. If the problem was a corrupt filesystem, then this should fix it. If it doesn't fix it, then it might be a faulty onboard device.

In any case, let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Lolita

Hi there ,when i first switch system on it starts booting up past the windows xp screen then starts all over again, this happens repeatedly.


Your hard drive is most likely the problem. You need to run a chkdsk /r on the drive to try to repair it. You need make a windows xp boot cd. If you are unsure how to do the above you should take this to a repair place.

When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.
