Every time I start my Windows XP desktop, the Windows Advanced Options Menu keeps appearing and no matter which option I choose (Start Windows Normally, Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration etc) it keeps returning to this menu. I reseated the RAM, but it still gives this problem. Can anyone suggest a list of troubleshooting steps I should take to fix this? Thanks in advance

Try this:

  • Boot the computer from your Windows XP CD.
  • When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, press [Enter] to start the Windows Setup.

    Note: Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).
  • Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  • Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and then press [R] to start the repair. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
  • Do not press any key to boot from CD if and when such a message appears. Setup will then continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
