I have Windows XP Home Edition and one morning I tried to turn my computer on and found that windows will not boot up. It goes into a continuous loop and the Windows XP screen will come up where it is thinking, but will never actually bring up windows. After 5-10 minutes, it goes back to rebooting.
I have pressed F8 to try and change order of boot phases, but am not to knowledgeable of what to do there, but tried various different things to no avail. I have tried to boot in Safe Mode and other options available on that screen, but still not able to bring windows up.
I have not tried to use the CD's yet as I'm afraid to lose any files that I have on my Hard drive!!
I am @ a lost and have tried what I know. If there is any help that people may provide, please help me!!!
My computer is a Compaq Presario 725 Laptop and I had purchased in 2002...I know it's old, but never had major issues until now.
