ok im not sure where to post this but it seemed like the correct place. i have a referbuished desktop computer it's got and intel prosscer and runs windows xp. Well we had a power outage the other night and since then the compuer everytime you turn it on it loads to a screen that has a bunch of numbers on it then another screen that say's the computer's last shut down was not sucessful..... then gives me 4 options start in safe mode start in safemode with command box start in last good known configuration start normally i've tried all of these things it will start and go to the screen that says windows xp like the loading screen then the computer beeps and starts over again it won't even go in to the computers log in screen. I'm not sure why it would do this. when the lights went out i was working on a new video in windows movie make and has yahoo messenger and a nother messenger called i.m.v.u running. i don't know if that would help but who knows?
