Hi I seem to be stuck in some kind of cycle on my laptop.
It's Windows XP Home running on a Toshiba Equium.
I start up and the laptop goes into a screen telling me there's a problem, we apologize for the inconvenience etc and choose an option to start Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Last Known Good Configuration etc.
All options to boot into Safe Mode / Last Configuration etc go to the Windows start up screen for about 30 seconds then straight back to "We apologize for the inconvenience ..... and the list of Safe Mode etc.
Choosing Safe Mode goes through a list of text which hangs at aswRvt.sys then goes back to "We apologize for the inconvenience ...."
To make matters worse, I never made a recovery disk or a back up of XP or anything useful like that ...
Can anyone help or am I looking at consigning old faithful to the cyber graveyard (hopefully not). It's a bit old and slow now, but solid and reliable .... a bit like me.
