When Windows XP tries to load, I get the following message: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." My options are:
Start in safe mode.
Safe mode with networking.
Safe mode with command prompt.
Last known good configuration setting (most recent setting that worked).
Start Windows normally.
If I chose and mode I will go to the black windows loading page and it will continue to load with no change ever coming. I'm pretty sure I caused this problem when windows was shutting down and I flipped the power switch off before windows finished. I've tried every mode and none of them seem to work.
I am ready to try anything that might fix this. I do not need any files stored on my computer. I just want to fix this problem and get the computer running again without having to but and new components.
