Hi,

Hope someone can help with this problem.

The pc boots but doesnt load windows all that it displays are cant find boot file on floppy also cant fidn boot file on CDROM. It then give me the option to go into windows in safe model but when i select that it comes up with the windows xp loading screen and just resests back to square 1. It kinda comes up with a blue screen but resets itself too quick to be able to read anything.

Any suggestions.

Thx in advance for any help offered

Try booting to your XP cd, loading recovery console, and running a check disk on the HD (chkdsk /R). You could also try fixing the boot record by typing fixboot.

Hi,

Thx for the reply ive tried both options and still no joy :( is thier anyway of disabaling the reset function when a serious error happens from the boot menu's ? as it resest because its found a error. Could this be due to bad memory or corrupt HD ?

Well i had the same problem as u. It took me awhile to figure out just one of my memory sticks were bad. So my best guess is your memory is bad.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
