  • boot loop problem

    Hi,
    My computer is in a "loop boot|" (it reaches the initaial window screen, not the desk top and reboots).
    It wont boot through safe mode, wont let me use the sfc in the repair mode (says that another program is accessing the h.d).
    The only way i succeded entering the computer is with ERD commander, but couldnt repair.
    What else can i do apart from format?
    o.s win xp pro pentium 3 700 256 ram memory.
    Thanks,
    Bendi

    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

              Looks like your install could be screwed up m8.

              You could try a non-destructive repair.

                Boot to your CD and on the first prompt for repair type R. then goto the console and type "chkdsk" also "fixboot" that sometimes works.

                  I had a similir problem with a machine recently and I had to to clear the cmos on the motherboard, by setting the jumper to "clear cmos" and this fixed everything, but the motherboard for that machine was mean't for this.

                  One thing that should work is "last known good" while hitting F8 when trying to boot. Im guessing though that this isn't possible. but this is a symptom where you would normally use "last known good configuration".
