Can someone help?

My computer got turned off at the wall by mistake and when I turned it on again the usual message came up:

'We apologize for the inconvence etc...

choose an option...

Safe Mode
Safe mode iwth networking
Safe mode with command prompt
LAst known good configiration
start windows normally'

Yet when I highlight an option and hit enter all it does is start up again and go to the same boot menu?

What can I do to stop the loop and see the wndows sign etc. and then login to my account?

If you have an XP installation disk, or can borrow one, then start the Recovery Console [via Repair an existing installation option] and run...
chkdsk /p


thanks so I did that- tried to repair it using a windows XP cd but to no avail. All it did was give me the option to restart by typing in 'exit'. So I did but the restart just brought me back to the same boot menu.

Should I try setting up windows XP ie installing it?


P.S. sorry I took so long to reply I was searching for the CD...hope ur still there gerbil:)


Hans.... yes, the RC does show you that command, exit. Go back to there, and type in the command I gave you...
chkdsk /p

Edited by gerbil: n/a


great i'll try that in the morning nd let u kno how it goes so i guess just keep checking up on this thread:)

thanks for the code etc.!
