Restart the PC and tap the F8 key, then select start in safe mode and see if it will boot up that way.

left click my computer/ right click C drive if this is the hard drive with your operating system on it/ right click Properties/ left click Tools Tab/ left click Check Now in Error checking/put a tick on both boxes/click Start

You will get a message saying a CHKDSK has been scheduled for next time you restart your pc.

Close down PC, leave for 10 minutes, turn it back on touch nothing and yoou should get a message saying chkdsk is being ru. Just leave it to run. Should take some time.

If doesnt work, report back

Above was asked, Can you get into SAFE MODE by keep tapping F8 ?????

  jail-bird 18:15 14 Jan 2007

do you mean PC is not happy with going into safe mode (if not what happens when you try to go into safe mode) or you yourself are not happy at attempting to get PC to go into safe mode?

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
