Question about Operating Systems

Terry I need to know how to use the cd for repairs; i'm at this point

Ok start the system in safe mode, when you get to the logon screen use "administrator" as the logon and no password, it that gets you in go to control panel , users and select your normal logon and reset the password.
If you cant get in that way there is a solution, its more complicated and requires you to do a repair using the windows cd

Sir my windows xp sp2 is not booting and shows stop 0x0000000e meassage with blue screen


You will need to boot it with the XP CD and perform a repair install if you have important data you need to recover. If boot with CD format it abd do a full reinstall. If you have any problems while doing this i would check the memory in the computer maybe by just checking 1 stick of ram at a time. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

I DID A SYSTEM RESTORE AND NOW STARTING UP IS ALL I GET. EVEN IN SAFE MODE.


You need to repair your Operating System (OS) using your installation CD.
If repair doesnt work, then you need to reinstall your OS.
