[Failured-To-Boot-Up] BsoDs+Boot-Loop+AutoRestarts (Windows 10)

Q: [Failured-To-Boot-Up] BsoDs+Boot-Loop+AutoRestarts (Windows 10)

This Problem has been happening since the Later Updates of Windows 10. (I remember when Windows 10 was first released, I had Zero problems with the OS, my PC was running fine. So, it confuses me, makes me think that it could be Windows 10, but it could also just be a problem with my PC System. Again, it could also possibly be Drivers. I need help please! Take Note: I am now using a Clean-Install of Windows 10, (Reboot) I no longer have anything on my PC, just the default Windows 10 files. I do have Java installed, a few games, and that's it. Nothing else, so what could be causing this problem? I HAVE NO IDEA!
Hello Windows10Forums Community, I've really been having issues lately, as of Windows 10 installation. I've found that there are several problems occurring at once.
The real problem itself is to do with how Windows 10 & my PC are playing along together. My first thoughts were it must be Windows 10, right? Not so sure now.
After discovering that the BsoD (blue screens of death) are occuring with errors that are related to drivers (no doubt) I'm starting to think that it might be drivers.
But then after a conversation with my father, I've found that it could also be the PCU not living long enough due to my System Specs, it might not be working together.
The PCU could be outdated, not so much compatiable with my Graphics Card. I have no idea, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on solutions, on what it might be that's
causing these Windows 10 conflicts with my system. Here are other problems that occur:

(1) System doesn't load up all the time. So, I turn it off over night, come back to my PC & find that turning it on (or even getting to the actual desktop) is a real
MISSION. It takes forever, and I mean a good while to actually start functioning again. The OS loads up, my computer boots up, and it works! Like it loads the Windows 10
Loading screen, and BOOM! It resets my PC again. Restarting it seveal times by itself in order to fix itself? I don't know. But I do know that my screen goes black,
comes back on- boots up again. And then boots up, goes off again, boots up, goes off again. You see? There is a pattern here. Eventually, I can then load up onto the Desktop
Log-in, and presto, it works again!

(2) Not long after that I find that opening up 'FireFox' or doing anything on the first successful boot-up causes it to once again... turn itself off.
The PC shuts down automatically, rebooting again. Boots up, freezes on the loading Windows 10 screen, goes off, boots up, freezes on the recovery.
Goes off, boots up, and then finally the recovery works, I can use the recovery options. But the problem occurs again when I choose (Start-up Repair)
It says that its doing something, but really it's not. It just keeps spinning round and round, loading several times (not doing anything) SO, I restart my PC
& again, it works. It comes up with the Windows 10 loading screen but goes to another Windows 10 loading (spinning circle thing) u know what I mean.
And this second loading screen is laggy, like you can see it moving in a (laggy kind of way) like the FPS has dropped or something. Then it comes onto Login!
I Login, it works! I finally can use the PC again like before. It doesn't turn itself off when I'm on 'FireFox' it doesn't seem to break at all.

So, what is exactly going on with this PC? I have no idea. I really don't know.
If it helps: I am using Sapphire AMD Radeon HD Series (6600+) Something like that.
So, I have no idea what is actually causing the BsoDs, the computer to not boot up.
The computer to go into a boot-loop, I don't know anymore. I really, really, don't know!

And by the way! ~ What I'm using right now is Windows 10, a clean-install, and everything is wiped.
Like there is hardly anything on this PC, so I know for a fact it's not being caused by Softwares or whatever.
Unless it's the default softwares that run in the background that come with Windows 10.
I wish I knew what was causing my problem. I've read into it, and it could also be because I'm using Wireless Internet.
So, I turned off my Wireless Internet, now using Cable, so lets see if it works now for tomorrow.

I'll let you know the progress...
but in the meantime, please, please!
Please can you help me solve this problem!
I hate this PC because of all these issues.
It makes me think that my PC might be dying...
Which is weird, I've only had it for 3 years.
Oh, and it could also be the end of the PCU's lifetime.

- Thanks again,

- LukeJR

I have a Satellite L645 I put together 4-5 months ago from the wreckage of it and a Satellite P745  Next, will be learning if swapping the CPU from P745 to the MOBO of the L645, but that will be another day

I recently did a number of repairs on several PC's/Laptops that I restore/refurbish/rebuild to provide inexpensive units to those less financially fortunate.  After 30+ years in the IT industry, and now retired, I can return to computers as the hobby it began as.
While doing this latest bunch it appears I picked up a virus either from one of the harddrives in the wreckage, or from the online hunting & scrounging for parts, drivers, apps, etc.
WIN10 began, during booting up, telling me I needed to allow the Automated Repair to run, then changed its' mind and said to use the Recovery Media to repair the system.  I tried to force numerous incomplete boots to cause the options menu to appear, but to no avail.

The errors progressed to the "a required device is missing or not accessible" when trying to boot from proven USB Recovery AND USB Win10 Install media.  The system tries to boot from the WIN10 DVD boot disk, but after a long wait, that too, fails.
These are the various BSOD screens:

hi guys...am new here...
two months ago i ran the msconfig and i guess i messed up with the boot.ini file...now my pc had been in a boot loop since then.i have looked for solutions and found them but due to no support for xp,most methods have not been successfull.
and now i read about editing the boot.ini file and decided to enslave my hard drive on a friend's pc so that i can edit the file...
now my question is how to find the file after i enslave it on the pc,and if i edit the file i will be able to boot the pc successfully once more??

i surely appreciate any replies,for real....peace and thanks in advance

A:How to find and edit the boot.Ini file, and if it will solve boot loop

Rather then edit the boot.ini file, put the drive back into the troubled computer, and boot off an XP CD or USB Flash drive. Get to the Recovery Console then try these commands to fix the boot sector: 103 - Fix or Repair XP if it is not booting (using the XP Recovery Console) - RMPrepUSB

Current situation: When Windows XP boots it displays Windows logo, black screen and then a small error window with title "User Interface Failure" and text "The logon user interface dll msgina.dll failed to load. Contact your system administrator ..." There is a button to restart the system. Booting causes a loop back to the same state; I cannot get the system to boot to safe mode. Other than the lack of a logon and desktop the rest of the boot process seems to continue OK; I can access network shared drives from another system. Using BartPE I can see that msgina.dll is in C:\windows\system32 as it should be. Unfortunately much of the data I need to access for my work is not on shared drives and cannot be accessed by BartPE so I am in big trouble.

Background: The express version of SpyCatcher was installed a few daus ago. All was OK until I restarted the system and arrived at the current situation. I also have BartPE which I have used to look at the SpyCatcher logs and found entries that msgina.dll was quarantined (along with many other safe items). I believe this is the cause of the problem and not anything else.

I know that if I can get to a desktop to run SpyCatcher I can reverse all the items it wrongly quarantined. The question is how to get to the desktop? I have tried the following with no success:

- boot to safe mode
- verified msgina.dll is in the correct location,
has same hash code as original dll, and
doesn't have security set to prev... Read more

Sorry for the long post but I'll try to give as much info as I can...

I've just installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit and Linux Mint 12 on a Compaq Presario CQ60.

I created a 25Gb partition for Windows, a separate partition for data (around 180Gb) and then installed Linux Mint 12 on another 25Gb partition.

Edit: just to clarify I installed Windows first.

Windows was working fine - I installed all the necessary drivers, security software and Windows updates etc before installing Mint 12.

After installing Mint 12 I booted back into Windows to check everything was fine and to format the data partition to NTFS from within Windows. After this I restarted the machine and booted into Mint to check all was fine on that side of things - it was.

I then left the PC for a while but when I came back to it I tried to boot into Windows and it just keeps restarting the PC when it gets to the Windows logo. It happens over and over again.

I tried booting from the Windows disk to do a start up repair but that doesn't work either.

The one thing I did notice though was that the start up repair tool reports that Windows is now residing on drive E instead of C!! This is weird as it had definitely assigned drive letter C to the main Windows partition last time it booted. Perhaps this is the root of the problem?

What I don't get though is that after installing Mint I booted back into Windows and everything was great. So now I don't know if Windows, Linux or perhaps GRUB is to blame fo... Read more

So I recently got some laptop parts to upgrade my laptop with from my friend who had the same model. Everything was working until I switched the harddrive (Big mistake). I thought since the model of laptops was the same, it could just be swapped in, but I was wrong and now I can't completely bootup my laptop with either drives. (I'm currently trying my fixes on my original drive)

On a restart after it downloaded some drivers, the device scanned the harddrive for consistency which deleted a few things. Since then it is mostly unable to boot (there have been a few times that it booted up but they are few and eventually they shut itself back down) and throws me in a bootloop even after I switched the original harddrive back in. I can boot it up successfully into safemode and use my windows recovery disc to boot up my laptop but neither of those are permanent fixes.

I've tried using the built in startup repair multiple times but it says it is unable to fix the problem. Looking at the logs of the scan, it says the root of the problem is a corrupt system volume disk.

I've also tried using system restore to earlier time but no luck. I've tried last known good configuration but didn't work.

I've tried performing a chkdsk function which was not able to fix the problem.

I've tried using bootrec. one of the functions showed that I had 0 windows installed. looking up and following the /rebuildbcd function from the microsoft site I fixed that problem so that it shows ... Read more

Hello and thanks for letting me join this forum!
I recently bought a new pair of RAM sticks as well as an SSD to upgrade my system. But after changing the RAM and adding the pcie SSD the system can't get past the boot process after the bios. It also results in windows trying to do an automatic repair on the system but it always fails to fix anything. I then tried to recover the system to a previous point but sadly I have no build to go back to. I also tried removing the SSD to see if that was the cause of the problem but the result was still the same. I also tried to change back to my previous ram but that didn't work either. Could there be an issues with the bios settings or am I doing something else wrong? Any input would be highly appreciated.
Please tell me if you need any additional info and I will do my best to acquire it for you.

So, I was an idiot for allowing an unknown .exe to access the internet. All of a sudden, command prompts invade my screen. They seemed to be launched from my local files. Each one, the cursor leaped at random places, not sure if there was a particular pattern for each .exe that launched. Around 10 launched and I was able to close all of them.

I performed a System Restore, and this is where I'm stuck in the boot loop. I tried launched Safe Mode and normal. No luck, the trojan(s) re-boot my computer.

Obviously, I can't provide a HijackThis or ANYTHING because I can't excess any programs at all. Although, can anyone provide any help?

So, my boyfriend a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4334 that is running XP Media Center 2002. This morning he woke up and it wouldn't finish booting. It POSTs, it sees the hard drive and the operating system. But as soon as the XP logo appears, the computer reboots. we turned off automatic reboot and got the following error:
STOP: 0x0000007B(0xF78AE524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
We cannot boot into safe mode, last known good configuration, cds, or USB, and we don't have a floppy drive.
we have tried an XP installation cd, a media center installation cd, and hirens bootcd, and it wont boot into any of them.
Last night he was messing around with drivers, because his SD card reader wasnt working and he needed to install a new one. We are assuming he somehow corrupted or accidently removed a necessary driver because that is the only reason we can think of why safe mode won't boot when the hard drive and the operating system are clearly recognized.
We pretty much need to know if anyone has any options that don't include reinstalling, that is our next step, but would like to avoid it if at all possible.
Thanks so much

before i formatted the drive, i tried getting an xp cd to boot, and the computer refused to boot from cd.
it would load xp normally, and stop at the ctrl-alt-del login screen.

does this sound like a hardware problem? i'm stumped.

You need to install XP while the drive is in the PC you intend to use it in.

Sometimes this method you used will work, but this is one of the "Not" times.

Hello Tech Support forum,
I work as a technician at a student run help desk for my college. Yesterday a student came into the help desk with a Windows XP SP3 HP Mini netbook, which will start and begin booting to the system disk. The Windows XP logo screen with loading bar appears, then the screen goes black, blinks on and off twice and the starts the boot process over from the hp POST. This seems like a very fixable issue but after a few hours of trial and error research and testing solutions we have gotten no where. So far the notable solution attempts include using the XP recovery console and the FIXBOOT and CHKDSK. I would really appreciated some input and insight

Hi. I am trying to use Windows after installing Ubuntu and it is not working. When I select Windows 7 from GRUB it comes up with "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" and with two options "Launch startup repair (recommended)" and "Start windows normally".

When I click "Start windows normally" it shows Starting Windows for about a second then comes up with "Loading windows files" and then comes up with the Startup Repair but startup repair doesn't find anything wrong?

So, I'm stuck in this loop and cant figure anything out. I did notice something on the Startup repair though it says my OS is located at drive letter D: which I know for a fact it is at C:. I have tried changing the drive letters back to normal but it just changes them back again after a reboot.

I'm trying to fix my wife's friends computer. She has a Dell XPS 400. When I received it from her she didn't give me very much information about her
problem. Basically all she said was she had a virus. She couldn't even tell me which anti virus she uses. I fired up the pc and was greeted by:

Drive 1 not found: Serial ATA, SATA-1
Floppy Diskette seek failure
Strike F1 to continue, F2 to run setup utility

Selected F1 and got caught up in my first of many loops. Pretty much like this:

Windows XP screen (cd tray pops out) (after the 6th set of blue bars going across screen, it looks like another new screen drops down and keeps loading).
Windows starting up screen appears. (cd tray goes back in).
BSOD flashes very quickly (to quick to read).
A quick Dell screen appears with this in the upper left hand corner:

PNY Verto GEForce 7300 GS PCI Express
Version 5.7.22 (that was all I could get).

Finally, Dell BIOS screen appears (cd tray goes out)

After a few times I selected F8 during BIOS screen and tried every option in Windows advanced options menu to no avail.
Finally after a lot of reading and trying to boot successfully I tried another option in the advanced options menu.
I selected Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure and received this BSOD:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down

Hello, I was trying to remove some Malware and trojans on my Grandmas computer and sort of crashed it. I was using iObit and I remember seeing something about a rootkit something or another and boot.img file and I did not remove the file as it had the boot.img file, and thats kind of an important file. Anyways after trying to restore and completely reformatting the rd drive, I've had no luck getting the computer past the Windows Splash screen without getting restart windows normally or windows repair options. I've seen a couple articles here that could be helpful in getting it to reboot, but their specifically for certain computers, so I was hoping to get some help. Any advice is helpful, thanks in advance.

First off do not use Iobit for malware removal. You should use Malwarebytes Free Anti-Malware, which can be downloaded here.Now, from what I understand you did a restore, but did not re-install the OS. Have you tried using repair tools with a recovery CD that should come with your computer? Or using a Windows 7 CD and using the repair options in that?

Transfering a hard drive that has had Windows installed on it using another PC is prone to cause problems as it will have the wrong drivers installed for all the hardware. You need to do a clean install on the new PC for it to be trouble free.

So, we need to find out what is causing the BSOD during the installation so it can be completed. When the BSOD screen appears can you see what the error code is, we only need to know the first part of the code which will look something like 0x00000050 or 0x000000D1 (there are several hundred different ones) and it may also name a driver, something like Win32k.sys. It may also show a description of the error like BAD POOL CALLER or MEMORY MANAGEMENT.

Did you remove the plastic strip that is wrapped over the CMOS battery on the new motherboard? If you have not done that it is bound to cause a problem.

Have you followed the instructions for using the new Motherboard, there should be some initial instructions to follow to set up the Bios. It should be set to Optimum Defaults. It also needs to be correctly set for the type of hard drive you are using.

Hey all,
My computer had been acting sort of weird lately (slow boot time, somewhat slow operation), but it seemed alright after I defragged about a week ago. I had had to do several forced shutdowns (by holding the power button), and after them all, I seemed to have no problems. Then, after one of the shutdowns, I went to restart my computer. I ran to the bathroom, and when I came back a few minutes later, I saw the little colored bar going for the Windows XP Startup screen. "Oh," I figured, "It must've been running a disk check or something." After the XP screen, however, my monitor went black, and then the boot process started over again, this time with the black screen saying that Windows was shut down abnormally, giving me some options. After picking "Last Known Good Configuration File," it continued the loop. I then chose "Safe Mode" from the menu. It gave me a blue screen saying;

"STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent or not writable.

Beginning dump of physical memory"

It's been sitting on that screen for going on three hours now. It seems to be saying that it's missing some software configuration file that Windows needs, but it can't find it or it's corrupt. I was thinking about popping in my Windows disk, and as I Googled it, I found a few methods I'm willing t... Read more

I had some issues with Xp being deleted from my boot options. I am running a dual boot with Xandros and XP Pro. I have a lilo boot loader that I had to edit to get Xp to boot up again. After I got that issue resolved, Windows booted up, which hadn't been booted in almost three weeks. My Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 had a corrupt data base, so I thought that I would uninstall it then reinstall it. I used the add/remove from control panel and the, later, found out that I had to use the Kaspersky removal tool before I could reinstall it. I downloaded it, used it, romoved Kaspersky, had to reboot for changes to take effect.

Now when I boot my pc, I get a message after hardware detection that says <press F1 to resume>. I had never seen this message before, so I just pressed F1 and it took me to my boot options, and when I tried to boot into XP I got a black screen with a white bar at the bottom of the screen that looks like it is loading something. After the"load" it takes me to the XP splash screen. After about 10 seconds my pc reboots and I am put back to the F1 prompt. I tried booting into safe mode, and it did the same thing. There are no error messages associated with the message and from what I can see everything is detected as normal.

I have read that this can be
a) a BIOS issued
b) the CMOS battery is getting low.

Any suggestions?

My XP system has been functioning normally. I was away for about a week and when I turned it on it will boot as far as the desk top appearing and then imeediatly reboot, continuing this behaviour constantly. This unit is not connected to the internet and has had no new software installed for the past six months or more. At any rate it is protected by current Norton software. I believe it has SP3 installed but I am certain it has SP2. As I recall there was a problem with installing SP3 and I may not have done so.

It does not go to the screen to start in safe mode and no error messages ever appear.

Any ideas??

Hey guys hope someone here can help me before I go mad. I built my new gaming pc and she was running smoothly until windows did a automatic update (without my permission) now nothing works. I keep getting hit with this error 0xc0000034 message which tells me that there is an invalid object in the Boot Configuration Data store". I then get a blue screen stating i should try to reboot using my usb i installed windows from. So I tried to boot from my usb windows 10 stick drive and it only brings me to the boot manager. I get the normal messages to launch it in safe mode but when i try and do that it restarts the computer then blue srceen followed by error code and back to my original error message. And the cycle repeats with no other options. Restart, error code, crash, boot manager, safe mode, crash, blue screen, error code and repeat. Once and awhile it will say windows diagnosis problem but then it just crashes and restarts. I can access my bios but i dont know what I could do from there. I really dont care about losing any files or programs since its brand new and I really have nothing on there anyway. So if I could just wipe it all and start fresh I am all for it but I dont see how. I cant access system restore to do a factor reset or restore to a different time period. My OS is running off my ssd so is there a way to do a clean reinstall of Windows, if so how would I do it since there is no option for it. As I stated before I cant access anything other than my bios an... Read more

15 hours is too long.Are you resetting the PC using a external device or the internal recovery partition.If you are resetting the PC with a external device such as USB or DVD, eject it and restart the PC.Else, boot the PC to F2 system diagnostics and run a system test before resetting the PC.  Chimney

Oh, hi there!

So my latest tale of woe begins. I got married on the 2nd and just now got my computer moved to the new place.

Well, it had been on this whole time but I thought nothing of it since I usually leave it on for extended periods of time anyway. Aparently, it was up to some mischief while its mistress was away because when I went to start it up after lovingly toting it on my lap all the way home in the cab of the moving truck, it told me it had not shut down propperly (because it was frozen when I went to shut it down for packing so I just powered it off) so no biggie, I told it to Start Normally. It seemed ok up to the Windows splash emblem at which point it seemed to be going on and on and on with the little waving windows flag so I powered down and restarted again.

Except now, it will only flash the Acer screen at the beginning, flicker to black, flicker again, sit for several minutes on a black screen and restart itself. If I let it sit, it gleefully plays ring around the rosie all on its lonesome indeffinitely! I've tried to get it to switch to the start in safe mode screen but it wont even cooperate that far.

Any suggestions from you all would be awesome because, well, you guys are awesome! I'm afraid I may be out of my league with this one and have to bring in a pro because I have no boot disks that I know of.

Running a windows vista home premium 64 bit. It was turned on, and working fine about 6 hours ago. ( Well, it was working mostly fine. About a month ago it started making a high pitched whining noise. I took it apart and dusted and put it back together but it the whining noise still continued.) When I went to wake it up there was no signal to the monitor. After waiting a while I restarted. The restart hung/froze the start up screen, "searching for devices". After another hard restart, The PC was able to boot to the desktop but froze after about 30 seconds. There was a strange visual glitch and then the computer restarted again, showing the Hewlett Packard start up screen. I turned the computer off and have not yet messed with it since. This computer was purchased from Best Buy in 2008, and did not come with a recovery or system build disc. I wanted to check here to see what next steps I should take to repair the problem before trying anything on my own. Advice?

I have a notebook running Windows 7 ultimate and recently installed a program called Deep Freeze, which removes any changes every time the machine is rebooted unless an admin bypass is used before restarting.
Unfortunately, I should have, but forgot to reconfigure windows update so that it would not be installing new updates on every restart. So now when I start the laptop it goes to the configuring update 1 of 91 etc. screen, goes through the updates, restarts, at which point deep freeze kicks in and removes the updates, so that they are started all over again. So upon reboot how can I prevent/stop that configuring updates operation so I can get into windows and fix the cause of the problem? Is something like the old windows 98 start in safe-mode option available with windows 7?

A:Windows boot loop with BSOD

Switch back to the original hard drive.

Unless the Win7 drive was previously installed in that computer when Win7 was installed, it's not going to work (as you have found out). You very often cannot take a working drive from one computer and move it to another. None of the hardware drivers for the new machine are present in the current Win7 installation, thus Win7 can't boot. Sometimes, if the hardware was similar, you will get lucky and Windows can boot and update the necessary drivers. But most often, all it does is crash.

Wipe the drive (or get a new drive) and perform a fresh install of Win7 onto the bare drive in that computer.

I will also note, that depending on the original type and source of Win7, it may not be legally possible to move it to another computer.

My Windows XP on my laptop has gone into a continuous boot loop. I cannot get it to stop. I was able to freeze the blue screen and observe the following error message: STOP:0x000000 ED (0x82A91F8 0xc0000006 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I did not notice any virus before this suddenly happened. I had a similar experience about a year and a half ago and a person on this forum named Jsgtrvr was gracious enough to help me fix it. The difference is this time, my second (working) computer is a mac. Will I still be able to download all of the necessary fixes from a mac? Thanks for any help that one can give me.

Hello everyone,
I have another fascinating (scarcastic)   Boot Loop problem I need help with. Basically I took a few desktop computers and switched some parts around. I am trying to make two machines with these parts. I have one up and running but the second has been giving me hell....Im at work right now so I will list what I know off the top of my head.
1st PC Build....(Works great)
HP motherboard w/ LGA 775 socket (microATX)
Intel core 2 duo - want to upgrade to core 2 quad Q9650 later
2 Gigs of DDR2 6400 - I had ram issues, this I had laying around but will get 2x 2GB sticks soon
500 watt ATX power supply
320GB hard drive
2nd PC Build...(Boot Loop issues)
ASUS Motherboard 939 socket
AMD athlon 64 x2
4x1 Gig sticks of Ram
400 watt BFG power supply
300GB hard drive
First, I had a bad power supply. It whistled when I turned it on. I switched it out for a BFG power supply I had laying around. Next was wiring the on/off switch to the Motherboard. Then, choosing a Hard drive. I have 3x 80GB hard drives laying around. This computer I am building for a friend of mine to use while he is doing some school work. Mostly going to be internet, email, microsoft office programs running on it. So I thought Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit is about 20GB of space then he has 60GB left. If he wants to upgrade his Hard Drive he can. Im giving him this computer for free so I did want to give him some awesome Hard drive when I had a few oldies laying around.

You can't do this. The PCs are not identical, therefore you need drivers coded for the components in the 2nd PC. You cannot simply install an OS on a HDD in one system and transfer that HDD to another system. Only in rare cases does this work- but you still need the hardware drivers for the new system.

Hi everyone?recently, I downloaded a device driver update program(Device Doctor) that I used to scan my XP system. After the scan, it gave me a list of updated drivers. I first created a checkpoint and then downloaded and installed maybe 2 or 3 to my system. Upon rebooting, the system booted to the desktop as normal ,and after about 20-30 secs, spontaneously rebooted again. After watching it do this a number of times, I concluded it probably was due to a corrupted or bad driver(s) that I had just installed, so I immediately thought to try and do a system restore and then uninstall the update program.

After unsuccessfully attempting to do a restore (I would click on the applet and get no response), I then tried rebooting in safe mode and again, could not get any response.( It would boot up to the safe mode menu with options, but I couldn?t do nothing after that). My third course of action was to try a repair install off the installation CD, but about 5-6 mins. into the install, I received a BSOD with the following STOP message: ?A Problem Has Been Detected And Windows Has Been Shut Down To Protect Your Computer.? IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL?. STOP: 0x0000000A(0xF2F4C908,0x00000001,0x00000000,0x807F0773), I tried it again, but received the same error message.

Hi I'm not sure if my problem is terminal or not, but I think I may have made matters worse I'm embarrassed to say.

Problems started with no programs responding this morning, so I shut pc down and re-started it, but it wouldn't boot up properly and would get to the windows start up screen then re-boot again continually.

Tried safe mode and last known good configuration but got the same thing.

At this point I couldn't find my XP disc so I went into setup and possibly foolishly loaded fail safe defaults.

Then when I tried to re-boot I got nothing, nothing on the screen whatsoever.

I've since found the XP disc and tried booting with it in, but still get nothing on the screen.

What have I done?? please help
