try going to windows in safe mode. press f8 on the startup screen and then go to boot windows in safe mode or something like that. How long has your computer been doing this has it always been like that since you hooked it up or is it just a problem that happened at some point

I tried that, it does the same thing in Safe mode as it does normally. It just started recently, i did nothing to the computer recently.

I did have a problem with some malware, and adware but i seemed to solve that. Then soon after it would do this.

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

this probably isn't it but try it anyway. Boot to windows to last good configuration. Sorry but I'm not really as much help if you can't even get into windows.

Hi KP07,

I have the same problem as yours. I guess that malware did something to the startup program.

I'm really not sure of what to do, guess the os is now crashed. How to reinstall os, can't even get into safe mode.

Anyone with some ideas, please help!!!

What about if you go into the the bios change the booting sequence to CD first. Reboot and slip your XP cd in the drive? Manual for repair install by Michael Stevens

Hey thanks for the help. I actually deleted my os and reinstalled XP last night. I used the xp disk and booted from the cd as stated earlier.

I reinstalled all the drivers needed, and my computer is faster than ever. I lost a bunch of info, but nothing really that important.


Thanks
Ken
