the computer thats giving me problems is a bit old. but its still useful its an HP Compaq dc5100 with a Pentium 4 processor. wen i turn it on it tells me sorry for the inconveniance but windows did not start successfully a resent hardware or software might have caused this.
it gave me a 5 choices
safe mode with command prompt
last known configuration(most recent settings that worked)
start windows normally
the first 3 choices show me a page full of different words. the other 2 just restart the computer and bring me back to the same black screen with the choices i stated above.
now i know that if i had the original xp disks i would be able to fix it. but i dont. is there any other way fix this problem? thanks in advance
