I am having an issue with my computer, it is old and purchased used for simple tasks.
The issue is with the hard drive on my computer, I know it is the hard drive because I have been using another hard drive installed with windows xp home edition and the motherboard works fine.
So, onto what it does when I install the hard drive with windows xp pro. It will boot into the windows xp screen then a black screen with;
Safe mode with networking
Safe mode with command prompt
Last known working configuration
Start windows normally
Tried safe mode screen fills up with writing about drivers and partitions and restarts.
Every single option I try it just restarts, but will not boot into the operating system/welcome screen.
It was working flawlessly until about a week ago when I dropped my keyboard and it fell on its buttons I heard a beep and now this. Can someone please help me I can’t afford to pay someone and I have family pictures and school tasks on this hard drive. Any advice will be greatly and sincerely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
