WINDOW's XP Won't boot properly. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME!

by wirelesscop - 3/27/05 1:20 PM

Hello,



I am running Windows XP. I hace had NO problems up until today with the computer. While attempting to power it up today, I get the following screen:



"We Apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.



If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.



If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if your aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.



I think have the options to re-start the computer in:



-Safe Mode

-Safe Mode with Networking

-Safe Mode with Command Prompt

-Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

-Start Windows Normally



NONE of these options will let me start my computer normally. The screen with all these options keeps coming up over and over and over again. My computer won't boot up to its normal state.



Does anyone know what the problem is and how I can get things back to normal?



Thanks for any and all help!
