Laptop startup only showing Windows log screen

  torroxtown 18:07 13 Jul 2010

Amilo laptop running XP will not continue to boot up.
I caused this by switching off during system restore!!!!!
Stops at Windows logo screen then shows 3 options eg F2, F12 to enter startup screens.
Use of these keys only starts an endless loop .
Using F8 will bring up other starting methods but nothing works. I have tried Safe Mode, Command mode, last known good settings etc.still nothing.
I have Recovery Disc but of course it will delete all files and data if I use it.
DO I have any alternative?

When PC starting Hold the Shift key Down till Desktop Loaded. If it loads you have a Driver Problem
