I am facing issues with my desktop of not booting up. It remains stuck at Windows XP boot up screen. The day before I had shut down the PC normally. What I have tried;
1) Have tried booting up in the Safe Mode & Last Known Good Configuration as well but no luck. On selecting Safe Mode, it loads some of the files up till WINDOWS/System32/Drivers/aswRvrt.sys & then again shows up the same message again giving options of Safe Mode/ Last Known Good Configuration & Start Windows Normally.
2) Removed both the RAM modules one by one & boot up, but still the same error.
3) Checked the cables to HDD & Optical Drive.
4) Rebooted with least the hardware & no network.
Pls assist resolving the issue.
Desktop Confirguration:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 635
MB: Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H
