I stopped using this computer several years ago because it would keep rebooting through Windows Xp. It would ask what mode to start in and would keep on recycling no matter what mode you chose. Does anybody have a solution so I can bring this laptop back to life?

Hello -


Are you able to access Safe Mode (tapping F8 as the computer starts) ?

Use the Arrow keys if you can get to anything (Safe Mode is best) when the computer boots.


Thanks -

yes, but from there it dies the same thing. I can't seem to break the cycle.
