My borther's PC isn't working anymore. He has Windows XP, when he boots it up it comes to this screen:
Then a black screen with the mouse pointer appears and we are able to move the mouse, so it goes as far as loading up the mouse driver and then the PC reboots itself.
I tried the Windows XP installation repair via the Windows XP CD but the problem persists.
Now I tried running it in safe mode and when it should open in the safe mode I got a window with this warning:
"Windows XP Setup can not run under Safe Mode. Setup will restart now. <OK>"
I clicked OK and the reboot loop started again...
Seems like it wants to finish the repair thing I started but can not. Is there a way to stop the rapair and just boot up the Safe Mode so I can rescue my files before formatting?
Any idea what could it be and what should we try from there on?
