I have a problem with my desktop. I've seen similar threads, but I have yet to find one with a solution that has worked. I'm trying to avoid a complete re-install, to minimize any possibility of data loss, as it is a business computer. The error occurs directly prior to the login screen for windows xp. Selecting "OK" restarts the computer and creates an endless cycle. I cannot do a recovery, or get into any of the safe mode options, as it only does the same thing. Does anyone have any clue how to fix this without 86ing the whole bloody OS?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

~~Andrew

Can you boot into safe mode?

Unfortunately not, or I else I would be able to stop it from looping and diagnose it. Hence the source of my frustration. The only two screens that I seem to be able to access are the boot menu (boot to safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known configuration, etc.), which none of it works, and the set-up menu. I've tried anything everything I know, so I am out of ideas, short of backing everything up and formating, which I'm hesitant to do, due to potential data loss. Any ideas?


Thanks,
~~Andrew
