Hi again,this time i have problums with another pc-an old old spare (wait 4 it,dont laugh-A compak deskpro!)i just brought it round my m8s house to activate the windows as i currently dont have the internet at home at the mo.conected it fired it up and after the black xp screen it went to a blue screen saying file system nfst and that it wanted to check the H Disk for consistency so i let it run the check and it scrolled loads things like deleting various ophen files and indexs? then it restarted now it gets to just before the welcome screen then restarts and the HDD takes a few seconds to spin up again when restarted.so if any one has a clue whats going on with it feel free to post! Thanks.
P.S. feel free to veiw my other topic "Home Built PC Problums" Thanks.

Sounds like a possible goosed HDD

Assuming H drive is your system drive?!?!

Also - check if you have a USB Flashdrive in - seen a few machines that do CHKDSK on Flashdrives

Can you get it going in Safe Mode by tapping F8 when you switch it on?

  muscic lover 17:42 01 May 2008

Try F8 key when booting up. Allows you to go to 'safe mode' and jopefully fault find from there.
Also if the whole thing seems dead in the water - try a reinstall of XP as you have nothing to lose yet??!!
