Alright all. Midway through trying to download something pc crashed, i'd lost norton firewall and virus protection, panicked, couldn't ctrl, alt,delete, it kept coming back to error, an wouldn't end now. So i reset, but here's the problem, it won't boot in any mode (this includes all 5 of the options ), that i've tried. if i boot windows normally when it ask's me, it gets so far through the start up (winxp) i get a flash of the ominous blue screen, an then it re-boots, an thus the cycle starts again. Can anyone help?
Follow the last few posts from the above link. IE: insert the disk and go through the instalation process. DO NOT USE THE "R" OPTION TO REPAIR. Select the install windows XP option (don't worry it will not install at this stage) select the "R" option latter when it is offered.
