when cold booting, screen comes on, and screen stops with the options:
safe mode with networking;
boot in last known configuration that worked
run in normal windows.
I tried each of the above selections, and each one runs their normal course, then screen goes blank and
starts the above process all over again. On the one selection, where I selected "run in normal windows", it actually went into the Windows screen with the horizontal timing bar and then 1/2 the screen would go blue for approximately 1/4 sec, and then it would start the reboot process all over again. I attempted to hit the pause/break button many many times to acquire the error/source code of the problem, but was unable to do so.
Next, I attempted to load my system disk into the dvd drive, and was able to get to the D: drive and it does read the D drive and the directory. So, I need assistance on what to do next with regards to fixing my problem. I think it may have something to do with a possible boot sector problem, or it could be something else. It may be possible that my daughter may have a acquired a virus on it sometime during the day today, because it was running fine as of last night.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
