windows is broken :( help!!! **fixed..im okay
    #2859589 - 07/05/04 08:49 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

a week ago while using EasyCleaner to clear up some of the shit on my PC, i guess i deleted something that shouldn't have been altered. now, when the PC starts up it pretends as if it were going into windows with the XP loading screen, then my screen just totally goes black. nothing can get out of this black screen except turning off the power strip and turing it back on to restart the comp.

it started giving me a prompt screen in 'dos' saying that "we apologize for the inconvenience.......but windows did not end properly" or something like that. (probably because i yanked the power on it to restart it) it gives me about 4 options:
start windows normally
start windows in safe mode with command prompt
start windows in sade mode with networking
start windows with the last working configuration

none of these options help.
i've tried to restart the computer with the XP reinstallation CD in, but it still gives me a blank screen. is there any way to reinstall windows without it having to load up windows to do it? thanks

Change your boot sequence in your BIOS to boot off of the CD instead of the HD. I think that should help you. :laugh:

It depends on who made your motherboard/bios chips. On mine, you hit the delete key while the bios screen appears. They all have a different key. Sorry I couldn't help you more.

thanks.. i'm gonna switch my moniter & things back to the broken PC and give it a try. i assumed that it would recognize the XP install cd and do it automatically, but I guess it doesn't since XP is already on there and it doesn't detect anything wrong.

hopefully next time i'm back i'll be on my old comp wish me luck..
