running home xp, decided to try pro xp, loaded to sep dir, decided no advantage and removed pro through the console. now on boot it asks which version i want to run and the start up screen changed it load up color from green to blue...anyway, now the system began to boot with a font which appears to be ding-a-ling, nothing one can read just symbols, any ideas?

Hi arthur04...

First, open "My Computer" and double click on "Local Disk C:". Is there more than one Windows folder present?

Then open Control Panel and double click on the "System" icon. Under the "Advanced" tab, click the "Settings" button in the "Startup and Recovery" section. Click on the "Edit" button...a notepad window will open. Copy and paste the contents of that window here for me.
