WINDOWS XP Will Not Boot

By KNICKSNL

  1. When I go to boot Windows XP I continually get the following:

    Safe Mode
    Safe Mode with Networking
    Safe Mode with Command Prompt
    Last known good configuration
    Start Windows normally

    When I try any one of the above I get the same thing again! Help Please!

    Put your windows cd in and see if you can do a repair.

    That does not work, still reverts back to original screen mentioned earlier! Still need help!

    In that case, you may need to reformat and reinstall.

    Hi Rik,

    Thanks for your quick replies, another question, I also cant get to CMOS might this have something to do with the boot problems I am having?

    I doubt it, that will only cure a bios issue and you seem to have a windows issue. But by all means try it tho.
