When I switch my PC (with XP Home 2nd Edition) on it goes through the boot procedure and then presents me with the option of starting windows in safe mode or start normally. Whichever I choose gets me to the Windows XP Logo screen with the blue moving progress bar, and after 1-2 seconds the PC reboots. I've removed the CD/DVD and floppy drives, tried it with different RAM modules without any luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.
All external peripherals have been disconnected and when my CD/DVD drives are connected it doesn't appear that they are recognised because the CD doesn't activate during the boot procedure. Anything else i can try?
Have you tried going into safe mode,[Just keep tapping F8 as your computer starts]And see if you can get in that way,You could try last good configuration if that works.Or you may have to go into the bios and change start up to Dvd and not Floppy.Something like that.
All of the safe mode, the last known good and normal options present me with the same thing, windows logo page a progress bar for 2 seconds then reboot. What i have only just been able to decipher is the information that appears on a blue screen that flashes up for a mili-second. It gives an error pointing to:
I haven't installed any new hardware the drives that exist are the original IDE hard drive, CDRW, DVD ROM and floppy drives. The PC reboots despite the CDRW, DVD ROM and floppy drives disconnected.
