hey guys, i have a little problem with my computer :tazz: it wont boot up :) . I moved to college and had to install a couple things, antivirus and a windows service pack 2. I have a bootleg version of XP and i got i nice message when i tried to dowload it basically saying that i couldnt because i didnt have an authentic version. My hallmate said he had the same problem and he dowloaded a Windows service pack 2 with a cd key and gave it to me, and it worked on his computer. Well we started on mine computer, and then we encountered a problem i didnt have a usbehci file, so my friend went on his comp and put it on a flash drive and tried to install it on mine, no such luck. then windows just restarted (it did this by itself) and it goes to the screen where i need to pick in what mode to start it up, the options are -Safe Mode -Regular Mode -Safe mode with networking -Windows in last known good setting None of these options work basically my computer tries to load, gets to the screen with the options and then once i pick an option or wait 30 secs, it will tried to load windows but then restart and back to the screen i go with the options. Anyone know whats goin on? can help? its much greatly appreciated.

Could i make some setting in the bios? if i can awesomw but i dont know the password :) but ive heard that you can clear the password by pressing some sort of button on your motherboard. Is this true? I have a ABIT A7 i think but will check and post a bit later.

Just a note the service pack 2 DIDNT finish loading fully from the cd, about more than half way.

thanks for giving this thread a look and reading the whole thing (if you did :) )
