When I start up my pc it is unable to boot and comes to a sreen that shows these:
"We appologise for the inconvenience, but Windows didn't start successfully.
A Hardware or Software change might have caused this
If your pc stopped responding, restarted automatically or was automatically shut down to protect your files & folders, chose 'last known configuration' to revert to most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interupted, due to power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if your not sure what caused the problem, chose 'Start Windows as Normal'.
SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING
LAST KNOWN CONFIGURATION PROMPT
Use up & down keys to highlight your choice.
Seconds to Windows start : 28 "
I think the problem started when, just as i was shutting down my pc,say a minute after, a power blackout occured. then now whenever i boot my pc the above screen shows. i have tried to use the option "START NORMALLY" but it just reboots back to the same options.
I have also tried SAFE MODE but it also doesnt work, i think it opens up to something like a cmd then i just shut it down. But before loading into cmd it displays these, :
(the first 5 that i managed to get, there are more)
multi (0) disk (0) partition (1)\ WINDOWS\system 32\ntoskml.dll
multi (0) disk (0) partition (1)\ WINDOWS\system 32\hal.dll
multi (0) disk (0) partition (1)\ WINDOWS\system 32\KDCOM.DLL
multi (0) disk (0) partition (1)\ WINDOWS\system 32\BOOTVID.dll
multi (0) disk (0) partition (1)\ WINDOWS\system 32\config\system
I was told by a friend that if i use the Windows Xp Recovery Console form the os disk i may be able to solve it.------------(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654
)-----------Unfortunately, he doesnt know how to use it and nor do I. If i use the Windows Xp Recovery Console, will it work?If so how do i use it?? Will i lose any files in the process??Is there any other options apart from Windows Xp Recovery Console??? I hope you can help me solve my problem.
