Can't get my PC To start in normal mode System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3 Computor: AMD Athlon(TM)XP 2200+ 1.35GHz, 1.50 GB of ram It starts after a long time if i choose Safe mode I thought it may be a display setting my Display Adaptor : Nividia Geforce Ti4600 But it all looks ok in the divice manager must be something else?
If an old computer check the air vents are clear of dust and fluff,if so inside will also need cleaning out.especially the fans and CPU. maybe run your security programs in safe mode and see if they find any problems.
Hi tryed the chkdisk in safe mode & full fix on start up already run my AVG scan & DEFRAG in safe mode, it is a old pc i did give it a quick clean when i put a network card in a month ago will check & clean fans tomorrow as it is in my office @ work, Idid go in to set up & boot the windows disc & choose r but nothing happend typed help but diddnt know what commands to type in,so i have tried all the obvious things, maybe a hardware fault
