I've got a computer with XP Home. The "windows did not shut down properly" comes up when i boot the computer, any option that I pick whether it be last known good, safe mode, etc..... the same thing happens..... Windows xp loading screen pops up for a second.... followed by a blue screen with some code and other words on it but it is too fast to see what they say.... then computer reboots.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Press F8 when the computer logo comes up and continue to press it every second or so until you get the Boot Selection Screen. See if there is an line that says Disable automatic restart. If yes, chose it, The next boot should stop at the BSOD. Record the data and post it here.

You can also try the Last known good configuration from that same boot menu, see if that helps.

Here is MS's article on general trouble shooting tips for Stop: 0x0000007B errors: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103

Most of it does not apply to you but some at the end does. Read through and see if it helps.
