Would it make sense for me to reinstall Windows completely?
Aside from the day it would take, would I keep my programs? (Stupid question?) If I used the backup that I made earlier today after a successful startup without any problems, would I simply be reintroducing the problem?
I am very frustrated!
Keith et al,
Further to my start up problem where the computer continuously restarts without getting to the logon screen, and having tried the suggestions you made in my post of yesterday, I tried to follow some instructions you gave to someone else who had the restarting problem: reinstall kernel32.dll
I booted from the original Windows XP Home CD. The blue screen announced the loading of a multitude of drivers, etc. It then cleared and the line at the bottom said "Setup is starting Windows." It has been saying that (with no cd-drive or HD activity) for 30 minutes. I was hoping to get an opportunity to start the Recovery Console and do a 'repair.'
Something has gone wrong! (duh!)
What can you suggest?
