i have windows xp home edition w/o SP@ cuz it caused some problems, i was going to reinstall it but i never got to it. anyways after a power outage(during which time my PC was on), i turned my computer on and it worked fine. when i next tried to turn it on, it started differently. it started with this "Realtek boot agent" which said "press shift+f10 for options" and then the next screen said "Realtek blah blah fast ethernet controller ydda yadda" which i am asuming is my original network card. i say this because a couple days before this event i installed a new wireless network card. on this screen it said "DNCH...../" and the slash kept progressing across the screen leaving more periods behind it. and eventually it said "network boot failed" and on the next line said "exiting PXE rom" and then after a short time the next screen said " we apologize for this inconvenience. windows di not start successfully. this could ave been caused by recent hard ware change. yadda yadda." then it gave me three options. start in safe mode, safe mode w/network, and safe mode w/command prompt. it started pissing me off obviously at this point. and there were 2 other options starting with last known good configuration and start windows normally. now i tried all the safe modes but tey ended up listing all these files from the windows folder, you know te core files like dll and stuff, and it kept scrolling across my screen eventually it stopped nd then froze. and for the last known good config. it went to the windows xp loading screen and when it finished loading a blue screen with some writing flashed and then the comp restarted. same for the start windows normally. now i didn't have mch on my harddrive cept programs so i popped my restore cd in and restored the system files and wen i tried my comp again it went to the apologizing screen and when i tried the safe modes it did the same thing but when i tried the last known config and start normally it went to the loading screen and freezed when the bar hit the end. plz i ask for advice, does it have to do with my netwrk card? my hardrive really screwed up passed fixin?
btw i used another comp and set my own HD as slave and the other comp's HD as master and all the files seemed fine. so i did the opposite with my own comp setting my own HD as master and ther other as slave and it didnt work giving me the same errors. so i tried using my own HD as slave and the other HD as master. this time when the loading screen finished blue screen said that windows did not succussflly load. i believe tis screen was the one that i saw earlier that just flashed. it said this time that the problem mght have caused by a recent harddrive change not hard ware like it said last time. it said to check the computer not hard drive for viruses, i have no idea how to do that. so now i ask what the hell should i do? i beg and plead what the hell should i do?
