Hi Everyone,

Great website.

My problem:

When I start up WinXP I get to desktop and before everything is finished loading system restarts and then goes into disk check, e.g., when system closes abnormally.

When I try to go into safe mode key board arrows do not function to move to safe mode in menu.

When I try to boot from WinXP installation cd and get message press any key to boot from cd system just restarts again.

I've got big time problems!


Thank you so much Help me please!

Ok, so what I'm getting is that you cannot log in at all. The login issue sounds like a virus I had contact with. It was fixed by going into safe mode. When you boot from cd, and hit any key when it prompts, can you access the cd tools or no? It also sounds like you may have a keyboard error in there somewhere. Try the easier thing first,check your keyboard connection. I know it sounds too obvious to be the issue, but sometimes the obvious is at fault.

Thanks E. Fixxer - But prob not keyboard - I am 99.5% sure it is a virus/trojan etc. It is preventing me from going into safe mode, booting from the Win XP cd, etc. My keyboard num lock key is lit however the arrow keys don't function to move to safe mode and when I try to boot from WinXP disk after it says, PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD... nothing happens system just restarts. This is a real humdinger. :thumbsup:
