My computer was shut down unexpectedly. Now, when I try starting it up it comes up with a screen saying:

"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this." etc etc.

Then it has 5 options:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start Windows Normally

I've tried starting it with the last 2 options but it just reboots again.
I don't know what to do about it.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Do you have a MS XP install CD?

System manufacturer and model?

Have you read any options for repair/recovery that might be in your owner's manual?
