I have an older Dell Inspiron 1200 running on XP. Today I did a hard boot and it won't restart. It goes to the black and white screen with the options for Safe Mode, Last Known Config, and Start Windows Normally. I tried all of the choices and it goes around and around and returns to the same screen endlessly.
I noticed that there is a BRIEF flash of the blue screen for checking the disc but it then goes back to the endless restarts.
Do I need to go into BIOS and reboot from disc?
