as above says-
previous start up was interupted due to a power failure
options shown are-


safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
start windows normaly

It will only let me choose last option, wont allow me to scroll to other options,
Then when I choose last option it just wont load and goes back to same page.

Do you have a windows disc, If you do you can boot from the disc and choose the repair option,

sounds like you may have to do repair install, place your XP in the CD drive and select to boot from it. Select a repair install, sounds like you have corrupted files due to file outage

sounds like some install files have been damaged, you could put the winxp disk in and run a repair that will replace any missing files, you sure this pc is virus free, have you turned the pc off (at the wall)then start up and not just a restart (using the restart button).if that does not claer it then try the repair, hope this helps

ubcd4win.com or something....u got access to a working pc with a cd burner... u need that to make the ultimate boot cd for windows...
#14
oh ya chkdsk defo... first thing to do.

chkdsk /f /r... but they need to get to the comand prompt with a bootable cd first... ubcd4win is really good as it has loads of excellent recovery software too... if chkdsk does not resolve the issue.
