Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

200 ARC My faithful machine running XP Pro, recently crashed and will not reboot properly. The windows logo comes on the screen for a couple of minutes and appears as if it will reboot properly, but it does not. It displays an error message "apologizing for the inconvenience stating that a new software upgrade or installation might be causing the problem" and recommends to restart normally with previously known settings. It has a 24 second countdown to restart and when it does the windows logo appears and after a couple of minutes, it reverts back to the error message and repeats the process all over without ever rebooting properly. I have not installed any new software nor have done any recent updates.

Try and use it in 'safe mode' by pressing F8 in advanced startup options.

Then do the system restore.

PC crashes when i switch user


reboot to safe mode using f8 right before the windows logo screen at boot comes on. after on this, run a virus and spyware removal program. i recommend www.superantispyware.com for this.

this problem is mostlikely due to a virus or spyware. If all else fails, put your windows xp cd in and when this loads, select install windows then let it detect installed windows. select "repair" as your option for a repair reinstall, this will fix damaged or mising windows files.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

hi radarguy,

There several possible reasons why your computer reboot after getting to the windows screen. one is a corrupt or incompatible driver that was installed on your system, try to boot on safe mode(press F8 during the POST(power on self test) for newer computer this will come as a flash on your screen, when you are being prompted how to you want to start windows just the safe mode then check if your computer will start up properly if it is then a driver or an application may have cause the boot problem try to perform a system restore and put the state back when it was working properly you can check out this link if your problem will fall on one of the following problem http://www.aumha.org/win4/a/shutdown.htm
.
Now if safe modem will not fix the problem, the boot.ini maybe corrupted, check this link on how to re-install/fix corrupted boot.ini http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330184 this process requires your Windows installation CD.

Hope this will help you solve your start up problem with your computer.
