have a Emachines T6412 model. I recently got a web cam and installed the wecam, worked fine, loaded the disc that came w it everything... Few days later i unpluged it from usb and later plugged it back in.... I noticed the webcam didnt register on startup menu altho i tried it and it did work... Later that night while on a web page my pc shut of almost like the power plug was unpluged... Then i pushed on button wouldnt boot.. Goes to f11 menu w o me pushing f11 the menu that says --- safe mode safe mode w networking last know configuration ( that worked before) ect... All it does is try n boot and go right back to same menu...This sucks any sugggestions.... Also the safe mode wont work everytime i try and go in safe mode it goes back to the same f11 menu

I would try to run chkdsk /r on the C: partition, if I had a Genuine XP CD.

If not, I would download the XP Recovery Console, http://www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/repair_xp.htm .

I would then burn the .iso file to CD, using one of the programs listed at How to successfully burn or write an ISO-image to cd or dvd - http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm . Insert the CD in the optical drive.

Then I would change the BIOS boot options...save changes by hitting F10...and let it reboot.

Once the Recovery Console came up, I would follow How to use CHKDSK in the XP Recovery Console - http://pirules3.14.googlepages.com/recovery_console_chkdsk.
