Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I may have a corrupted file somewhere and all of a sudden I can't get my PC to boot up all the through the process. I have tried the F8 key selecting either the safe mode or not and still no difference. After the Bars run across the bottom of the screen, as per a regular boot up process, all of a sudden a black screen appears as apposed to the final opening log in page. The only way to get out of that loop scenario, is to hit the little re-boot button or shut the computer down all the way... (Cold Boot I think it is called).
Anyone with any thoughts would be an greatly appreciated gesture. I am using a second backup PC in the network I have st up at home.
Can run BartPE that allows you to boot into XP on CD and fix the problem or replace missing files. This process does not always work right. The best bet is to get another HDD (hard drive) connect it where the original one was. Then install a fresh copy of XP on it. Then migrate the data you want off the older HDD. But making it a slave. The orginal one is called Master but there is also CS cable select more of automatic process.
If you don't want to replace the HDD you can still run the BartPE but the system you have there is unstable as you can't even get into the Safe Mode. If you could get into the safe mode I can tell you all you had to do is backup favorites, desktop, history, cookies and web links, then delete the profile or user name. That would create a new profile for that user under XP.

Unfortunately, you may have downloaded a virus and it has attacked you common startup files for windows. Now the good news.(or bad at the same time). The only solution is to make a startup (A:) floppy disk from the computer you are using now. Then use the start up disk to get to your C: prompt where you will have to format your hard drive(C:) and loose all the info including the virus on the hard drive. You will then be able to restart and install a fresh copy of windows. Yes you will have to install all your other programs and drivers again also. Hope you had a backup of your files! Good LUCK.
