Hi, can someone help me? I have a MSI Motherboard V-Class desktop running Windows XP, it restarts repeatedly on startup after I switched boot mode to Safe Mode in msconfig. Now it showing floppy disk (40) [sometimes floppy disk (40)one]and give me 2 options:f1 to continue , DEL to enter setup. I chose f1, I also tried to load most recent working settings.

I had tried the load defaults in BIOS but it didn't solve the problem, someone help me please 😭

Boot your computer into BIOS and disable floppy disk if you are not using it.  Also make sure to place the hard disk drive where Windows installed top of all boot devices it need to be first boot device.

Can you give us the full error message please.

If you have floppy disk check its cable connections.

Boot your computer with bootable live operating system like Knoppix operating system and if the computer boots without the error message then we will know error message displayed by Windows XP.
