I am using a dell inspiron 1150 laptop running genuine windows xp home edition.
Nowdays I am facing a problem that while booting the machine I am getting the blue screen of 'Windows is starting up' for several minutes and it is not proceeding to show the Login icon of Users.
Even seldomly when it proceeds to show Login icons after several minutes of wait then also it cant login to my personal settings (can't load windows properly) and shows a blue blank desktop.
I have recently downgraded from XP SP3 to XP SP2 and there are several $uninstall folders created in my C:/Windows.even after downgrade syatem worked fine for over a month.
Is my Windows corrupt ? I can't use system restore as there are no restore points as well as my CD drive with windows XP disc to recover as my cd drive is not working. also none of the peripherals like pen drive work in 'Safe Mode'.
The only way I can open my laptop is running networking in safe mode where I can access Internet from.
Also whenever I am trying to shutdown from 'Safe mode' it is showing a 'Sample' program running which needs to be closed by'End task immediately' everytime i shut down.
Please let me know if this can be resolved by downloading something from microsoft to repair windows if it is a windows corruption or 'driver' error. the original Windows CD i Have is XP SP1but i kept updatingmy machine through windows updates and it is currently running SP2
Thanks in anticipation...
