  1. 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.

    Your hard drive may be failing... Check it with its manufacturers utility. It might be an indication of impending failure

    Both hard drives have been tested thorougly through chkdsk and hard drive apps, it doesnt have any error everything says ok. Soo its not that!

    Maybe OS damage by a virus, spyware or malware attack. Or failing CD ROM or writer
