Specs: Windows Vista
When Windows XP tries to load, I get the following message: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." My options are:
Start in safe mode.
Safe mode with networking.
Safe mode with command prompt.
Last known good configuration setting (most recent setting that worked).
Start Windows normally.

Use the up and down arrows to highlight your choice
seconds still windows starts: 30
Whenever i start safe mode, a lot of messages flash up on the screen and then the microsoft windows xp symbol appears as if its ready to start up but my computer enters sleep mode and again i get the same message: "We apologize for the incovenience.......".

and when i press, last known good configuration setiing or start windows normally. The microsoft windows xp symbol appears again as thought its ready to start up but it just goes back in cycles to the same message. i can press delete to enter setup/qflash to get into cmos setup utility a blue screen appears with a lot of different items i can enter into, but i dont know where to go.
My windows xp home edition was installed by a manufactuer called iqon so i dont have any discs what so ever, but i do have the product key.

When you get to the blue screen, copy the stop message info & search it on google.

"My windows xp home edition was installed by a manufactuer called iqon so i dont have any discs what so ever"

To cut costs, manufacturer's generally don't supply the actual Windows discs anymore. Instead, they put the files on a separate partition on the HDD & provide a program which can be used to create the discs. Unfortunately, most people don't bother to read the paperwork that comes with their computer & don't even know the program exists, therefore the discs don't get created.

Since you apparently didn't create the discs, you're going to have to come up with a Windows disc (buy, borrow, or download from the torrents) so that you can run a Repair. Either than or press the appropriate keys at startup & do a factory recovery.

First just a comment, to me it reads as if the blue screen is not a BSOD but BIOS settings.

Can you get into any of the Safe Modes? If so we might be able to do something from there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Press the pause key as soon as you see the blue screen.

Can you get to one of the command prompt options (after tapping F8 when booting)?

If so there is a way to do a system restore from there but you would need to take it back to a date/time before the problem happened.

On the black screen you type this then hit Enter:
c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Make sure it is "exactly" as written. It should then give you the restore choices.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have windows XP & there is certainly an F8 option. As soon as you push the power button, tap F8 a few times.

Then you need a boot disc.

It's one of the discs that you said that you didn't have, in the last line, of your first post.. There are more generic boot discs as well but that might be beyond your scope. If you want to try one for XP, go to:
