I have a problem with a laptop running xp. Its my nephews so i cant give a detailed version of what happened. when the laptop started i think there may have been a scandisk going on, but my nephew panicked and switched off the laptop from the power button. Now i
all i am getting is the four options start windows normally safe mode etc etc. i have tried all options, windows gets as far as the windows splash screen, there is a quick flash of a blue screen too quick to read error message then back to the options again I ran chkdsk which reported errors and repaired them, but still same problem. There is no recovery disk for this machine the o/s came pre installed, i have a retail version but am unsure if i can use this to repair windows.
Any ideas much appreciated
