I have a very weird problem.
I have a dell inspiron 5100 notebook w/ XP pro and I was searching different sites for my research paper when I came to a site that locked my computer up. I tried everything to get it to turn off before pulling the plug. Now for some reason when I try to turn it on it will just cycle and take me to the setup menu telling me that it might have been a power problem or something else. When I try to select to run in safe mode, normal, last know good config, etc. it acts like it is about to boot and shows the windows xp loading screen and then it restarts and does the same thing.
It will boot from the CD but im not sure what I need to do after I boot from the cd drive.
