This is one of the weirdest XP issues I have come across to date. Heres what happens. I boot up the PC , and I get that screen that says "were sorry for inconvenience but windows did not start properly, and it gives me options safe mode, blah blah normal mode. So I press normal mode, and windows boots up just fine. Now when I want to restart or shutdown PC, that works as well. Im getting irrated by this screen everytime windows starts cuz I have to hit Enter on normal mode, which it goes into perfectly. If I choose last configuration that boots in ok as well. But once again, When windows wants to boot I get that bogus message, when everything really works just fine.
