I tried putting it in safe mode but it starts the loop again I noticed something whilst i put it in bios through it said to do what to cancel loading vax374b.sys if so press enter either way it doesn't work if you need anymore information just say.

I had a similar problem I got it to a stage where I could type in command prompts and then ran C:\chkdisk or C:\scandisk.

This solved my problem.

I can't find a download for the correct version for XP. If you e-mail me by clicking my yellow envelope I'll send it to you.
