Using XP Prof. with both service packs.Have 2.4 chip and 500Mb mem. Problem is that on approx. every 3rd or 4th startup I get a black page with white writing which starts off saying, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." That is the first pharagraph. I get around this by starting the computer in safe mode from lower down on the page then closing the computer down. Restarting as normal and it's OK for maybe 2 or 3 times. Then up pops this screen again. Can anyone help?
Thanks for your responses. I really don't know when it started so a system restore is not the thing to do (I think). PsiFox, how do I go about a repair if I remove both SP1 and SP2 from the computer? I installed the SP's from a disk. I note in Control Panel that it is possible to remove only the SP2. SP1 was obviously installed with XP. What exactly would I be repairing? Any help is gratfully received. Sammohung
