    My PC wont start, Help

    Someone in my household unplugged the computer from the electrical outlet because it was frozen, and now it will not start when it is turned on. it loads the screen of safe mode, safe mode with... last know config., and start windows normally. All 5 of these options do not work and it continues after pressing one to restart and go back to the same screen. Can anyone help please?

    take a hammer to it and kick the living day light outta it and then follow on to the person . . . haha

    What operating system is it? Do you have the operating system CD? As it sounds like part of the operating system has been corrupted, I'd recommending booting from your OS CD and trying a repair install first.

    Yeah, buying a installation CD

    Sounds like a knackered HDD to me.

    download hirens boot cd use the mini xp mode open a command prompt and type chkdsk *: /F
    replace * with the letter of you windows installation and see if that helps

    Quite a few things it could be...

    But first thing to try would be the recovery console (but you need an XP disk).

    format local disk c

    This^^. Same problem occured to me with the PC being in a constant loop and not booting windows so used chkdsk, takes a long time but sorts the problem out.
