I can't logged onto my operating system windows xp. Not even in any of the safe mode formats. This problem occured abrutely when I rebooted my computer recently. I tried removing the hard drive and I tried rebooting my compuiter a couple of time. It would show me a cyclic pattern of taking me to the standard windows xp screen, then transitioning me to a blue screen and back to the IBM thinkpad screen again . The blue screen would not remain up there permanently to give me enough time to find out whats wrong. My Ibm think pad was working perfectly fine and I just bought a brand new harddrive. I had software problems in the past but no hardware problems, not to my knowledge. I did not reboot my computer in the standard mode because sometimes it would take too long to shut dowt and I would unhook my battery and battery outlet. What do you think is wrong with my computer and what do you suggest I do to find a solution. I pressed F1 on my keys and it took me to the IBM BIOS SEtup utility menu and I am not sure what options I should implement in the menu to resolved this issue.
Here is a part of the error message that appears: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully" error, unmountable boot volume" I wouild type all of it but like I said at the beginning , the blue screen appears and disappears in a short amount of time. I am SERIOUSLY freaking out here because My computer was working fine an HOUR ago and I don't know WHY it won't work now. I did boot it up improperly, but thats because my computer was running really slow at the time because I had so many programs opened at once.
