I'm having a hard time starting my computer. When I start my computer, it goes through the logo of the computer, then the "all rights reserved" stuff, then it goes to a black screen with "press ctrl+alt+del to restart" at the top left corner. I've done this ten times already and still it does not work. I've tried going into safe mode, but for some reason, it won't let me and I can't even get to the login part to get to safe mode, it just stays on the black screen. I've tried seven different system recoveries by interrupting the normal start-up and still nothing happens. I've been told it's my OS and that the bootstrap is corrupt. So what can I do?

Hi DragonFire12 ... :D ..:D

when you can't even boot into safe mode you will have to repair xp...

for the how to repair your operating system guides...
go here...

if you don't have a xp cd you will have to borrow one from a friend or coworker...
it has to be the same flavor of xp you have installed...IE: if you have xp pro...the one you borrow has to be xp pro
