  1. I have an Acer Aspire 3000 (don't laugh, I'm cheap and I know it). When I turn my computer on, sometimes it will "apologize for any inconvenience" and give me the different boot options. I've tried them all and here is what happens:

    1. Restart
    2. Boot until the load screen (with the scrolling blue loading bar and the XP logo)
    3. It will not boot after that, but if left on for long enough it will restart and continue in a loop.

    What to do?
