We apologise for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change migh have caused this.

If a previous startup attempt was interupted due to power failure or because thepower or reset button was pressed orif you aren't sure what caused theproblem, choose start windows normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with command prompt
Last known Good Configuration ( your most recentsettings that worked)

I have tried all options and all I got was the Windows XP Screen followed by a flash of blue screen before starting the whole thing over again.
There was no bad weather of an electrical kind and the computer was not plugged into the network or mains.
Please help, I can't even get to Safe mode:-|
