Ok here's what happened. I had turned off the computer to do something and I turned it back on and it said that it was going to do a scheduled disk check. I let it do the disk check. While the computer was doing the disk check I was doing other numerous things and saw that the computer was still on and I had completely forgotten that it was doing the disk check. So I do a 5 second hold on the power button and just before it turns off I look at the monitor realizing that it was still in the process of doing the disk check.(I know, a lot of you guys are probably like "What Were You Thinking!") Now whenever I turn it on it starts to start up and brings up a message saying that a hardware or software that I have recently downloaded may not be installed properly or something along those lines (I haven't installed anything for about a week) and it gives three me three options: Safe Mode Last Known Configuration Normal Start Up I have tried all three and neither of them work. When I go into Safe Mode it brings up all those driver files in white and instead of going to the log on screen it goes black and then returns to the HP screen and does the whole thing over again. If I choose the other two options it goes on showing the Microsoft windows logo screen with the little blue loader under it. The three little blue loader buttons do one cycle and by the time its about to do another cycle I hear a click, see a black screen and then see the HP screen once more and it does this fun little cycle all over again. Fun. Just a quick question which I think I already know the answer to, was it a bad thing that I turned off my computer by accident while it was doing the disk check?(I'm guessing a yes...) My computer is a Windows XP Home Edition. And if you need anything more specific about my computer please do tell. Thank you!
