Hi, I restarted my computer to start it in safe mode, but while hitting the F8 key, it beeped and stopped booting up. Now it does the same thing over and over without fully starting up or me hitting any keys. It keeps stopping at the first line of code with the Del for options at the bottom. But it won't let me do anything.

Have you plugged in any new hardware? Like a USB printer or drive?

If you have your XP cd boot with it and run the repair option when the installer starts.
