When I start the computer I get a menu with several selections, some are start normaly, safe mode or last know good configuration. I tried them all.
If I do safe mode I see a scroll of information that mentions partitions and files.
If I try normal or last know good, I see the windows XP starting screen, but it stays stuck on that screen.
The senario of events that may have something to do with it are, the computer was acting slow and not responding. I shut it off by turning the power off as the regular way would not work. I also stopped a AVG virus scan in the middle of it scan to try and get the computer to respond faster.
Any help would be appreciated in where to start, thank you.
PS the first time I tried to start it I got a blue scree with a message about something in the boot I believe. Next time I will write the message down, sorry.
