Windows wx start up failure

I am getting a screen at start up that reads

"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shutdown to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the last settings that worked.

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

Start Windows Normally

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your selection"

This started because I had to power down quickly to leave for a meeting, but I was simply trying to look at a pdf online and my computer froze...so using the menu options to power off wasn't working so I just hit the main power button. Then...when I tried to restart later...the above is all I get. I have tried highlighting each of the options separately, but the same result occurs...it works on starting for about 5 minutes and then reverts back to Toshiba start up screen...then quickly comes back to screen and directions above.

I don't know what else to do! Please help

The shut down caused a system glitch. You will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Rare, but occasionally, the hard drive crashes under these circumstances and will need to be replaced. Usually if this happens, the hard drive was on it's way out anyway, and would have crashed eventually.

Sounds like you have some corrupt files required for starting Windows. If "last known good configuration" will not work, I would suggest using any windows OEM disks that came with your computer to try to repair the startup files. If not, then you may have to either purchase a Windows OS disk, or pay to have it reinstalled.

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.
