I try to boot windows and the screen will load, then the system will restart. I had had enough of my problems so i decided to do a recovery re-insall of XP, then when i loaded the XP disc in, it didn't give the option for the recovery install, it just skipped it. What can i do to get this thing working agian? It won't boot at all.
 
also, when i enter the recovery console, the console does not recognize a windows folder or admin password. just goes right to c:\
 
are you overclocking?? try to press F8 before the OS loads, and it will give you a menu. choose safe mode, and see if it will still boot.
 
in safe mode it still restarts. i underclocked and the same thing happened.
 
I had this problem earlier in the year, tried everything under the sun to fix it, and as it turns out, it was some software that caused the problem. I don't know what software it was since i had to re-format. Do you have a backup of your drive in case you have to reformat?
 
ya. a recovery installation (or repair installation) isn't really all that worth it. just reinstalls Windows, leaves all the clutter, and no registry entries to use the software. At least the way i see it a repair install isn't worth it. might be to somebody else though. meh.
 
oh well, spring break from my school is comming up, so i think i will have time to transfer all documents to another computer and reformat. fun fun. thank you all.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
