Windows XP home edition
I just installed a new Logitech cordless desktop wave. Soon after installation the screen acted "funny".I shut down using the on/off button as nothing else worked. When I rebooted I got file\minint\system32\bios info.inf could not load. The error code was 4128
setup can not continue, press any key to exit. After many tries I left it.
Today all I get isdisk read error occured press ctrl/alt/del to start. However nothing happens when i do that.
Any ideas? how do I try to start in safe mode and try to go back a few days to bypass this mess?
My first post and I'm not a teckey so sorry if the Q isn't correct. :thumbsup:

Have an XP CD?

If so, I suggest going into the Recovery Console and running chkdsk /r first, if you can.

Then I would run the fixboot command (after chkdsk completes).

There are a number of posts with that error message but it doesn't look like there is any consensus solution that I would accept.

If I could not get into RC, then I would remove the battery and try to use the default CMOS settings. If the system then booted, I would then run chkdsk /r.

If all else fails, it appears that a clean install is next logical option.

What kind of system? Is this a system with a recovery partition?
