Issues with boot up

June 16, 2009 at 07:28:29
Specs: Windows XP
Ok, Here goes I have been on the net for the past few hours looking for a fix for my problem. I have seen some good Ideas but do not want to try any till I get the best answer. So this is the issue:

I tried to turn on my computer last night and it wouldn't display anything and my monitor said unsable settings. This has happened before and it would work after I turn off the computer manually. Then when it loaded the desk top display would be way to large for the screen although the setting are the same 1920:1080. So I did a system restore. This fixed the problem for a few days till last night when I tried the same thing but the compter gave me the safe boot screen, safe boot with network , normal mode, last working config, so on and so on. I used last working config and the program went to the windows screen with the moving blue loader at the bottom. then the computer shuts down and the process begins again. So is wrong with my machine could it be the XP SP3 update? Also I have loads of pictures and personal itne s that I would be devistated in losing if I do a repair install via xp disk will I lose these pics and files?


Please any suggestion would be appreciated.

... You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install.

... Service packs will "hosed"...

Perform a Windows XP Repair Install

... love letters and pic's should always be backed up anyway incase something goes wrong!

Thanks for the info. Most of my letter writings and pictures are backed up it is the recent ones form the last month that are not. I also forgot to mention that when i chose safe mode or normal mode the screen filled up with directories before restarting not sure if this is relevant but might be worth mentioning.

... you should be alright with those letters providing nothing goes wrong.

... safe mode is normal "like this" but normal start-up should'nt display like that!

... it would be a good idea to post pc spec's model name number etc!

... you may still have this issue with display driver(?)

... you could try right click empty space on desktop.

... click properties settings (tab) advanced troubleshoot (tab)

... move hardware acceleration slider one or two notches to the left .... see if that helps!
