Hello,
I am writing this for my friend in a far away place, who does not speak English quite as well as we think we do, . . so, . . I like to show him how this forum works etc,

He can get into the BIOS to look for the problem, concerning why WXP does not open when he starts up.

Is there anything you might tell us about what to look for there ?

Check msconfig first. If you are not familiar with BIOS, or aren't following a guide to fix an issue, it's best to not mess with it.

Hi Jove,

Does the computer loop and so it can't get into Windows?

Are there any BSODs?

Can they access Safe Mode?

How to Access Safe Mode

While the computer is turning on, tap F8 repeatedly until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode and hit Enter.

Ahhh, . . Yes, . . Shooter,

would you mind if I can get your intended meaning of "loop",

at this time your meaning will be far better than mine, cause, although I have an idea,

actually that would be the only one and would pertain to a loop, concerning motion graphics

and there fore it would be the program is set to, "loop",( as in start over from the beginning while constantly in motion), now about the, "computer loop",

I googled the definition, but actually I think I'm the one who got googled.

I assume it pertains to some events during start up, what should he be looking for ??

By "loop" I meant does the computer boot up, get to a point, then restart?

Were they able to access Safe Mode?
