My problem started with my laptop Dell Inspiron 1200 when i think because of virus, it kept on restarting, giving me only a minute and then restarts. It doesnt do that however when im on safemode. Unfortunately, when i tried repairing windows using a Dell Xp cd, it didnt completed its repair and restarted. The next time i tried going to the repair option, it's not available anymore. It only gives me an option of either formatting windows (which i dont want to do because of my precious files) or repair windows using a recovery console that i dont know how to use... I dont know what to do anymore. If i dont do anything and just let the computer starts, it doesnt go to the log-in screen. It will only shows windows xp and trying to go to log in screen but instead shows "setup is being started...." but then after 10 seconds or so, it turns black then blue screen shows saying "a problem has been detected and windows has veen shut down to prevent damage to your computer. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advance startup options, and then select safe mode. blah... blah... blah" Everything stop from there... If i restart and use safe mode, it says "Windows XP setup cannot run under safemode. setup will restart now." And that's it... Guys please help!!!!
