    No. I have tried F8 F4 neither one workd.

    If only I could get the window to booth up then I can go into restore to an earlier configuration by running msconfig;

    If I new how to booth up from teh windows XP CD then I could reinstal windows and solve the problem.

    We need another solution, but thanks for the advice.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Hp nx6110, stays in a boot-up loop

Hi, If you are sure that it's not overheating, then it could be the hard drive.
A boot up loop is an indication that the boot up sector on the hard drive is corrupt and broken. The hard drive tries to find this boot sector to boot up your computer but it can't. It keeps trying to find it again and again and again and keeps looping. Hank

When I boot up it loops from the first windows screen to setup is being restarted am running win xp cant get it to boot from cd.

Sounds like you may have to reload windows, so Yes, your first step is to get it to boot off the CD. When you first turn on your computer you have to go into the BIOS by rapidly hitting the <Delete> key. There is a chance it is another key which would be F1, F2, or Esc. Once in here you should see a "boot menu" where you can change the first boot option to "CD" Exit with Saving. This will then enable the computer to first boot off the CD.
One thing you can also try is rapidly hit "F8" and you will get a windows menu before you see the windows screen. Try the "Last know good configuration" option to see if that will get you back into windows. Also you can go to the safe mode and once in there go to Start-->Accessories-->System tools--> system restore. Then pick a date when you know the computer was working fine and hopefully it should boot back up fine.
Good luck

The computer will not start up until the reset has been hit many times or it has been turned off nad back on. It gets into a loop and a counter reaches about 180 and it recycles or the loop goes through...


Please try the folowing

1) Remove ALL cables including the power cable from the back of the PC

2) Hold the power button in for approx 20 seconds (yes i know there is no power going to it)

3) Plug everything back in and retry

From what you are saying the above should cure the fault, however if it doesnt then the next option is too book the PC in as it seems there may be a motherboard/PSU fault

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Installaion error

First make sure thats what you want to do since xp is no longer made. If you still want to go ahead you have to make sure you have the complete install and directions. You will have to remove vista first. But check the specs if you bought the computer with vista already installed you will not have the right drivers in your computer to go backwards in versions. Good luck. The reason the error comes up is that the install is trying to remove a component that is needed for your computer to operate. If you had xp and updated to vista, depending on how it was installed it would have removed the xp driver when updating.

Computer won't load past Boot and now doesn't display anything!

the memory stick going in one way into the module. If you can't close the clips try to rotate it 180 degrees.

when windows starts hit F8 key and select disable automatic start on system failure.
This will bring you a blue screen with the specified error

also you can boot from windows xp cd and at first screen select repair, this will put you in recovery console
in recovery console you can scan your hardrive for errors like this:
chkdsk c: /p /r

Motherboard upgrade

The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.
