Specs: Windows XP
hi
this is a usual restarting problem. my computer restarts automatically right after i turn it on. the problem started when i've done a system restore.Now, when i start the machine, i get a message that my computer was not turned off properly and i have to choose the way to start, so i chose "run windows xp normally", but it restarted instead of running windows xp!
and no matter what i do it will only restarts before loading windows xp!
what should i do?
can any one please tell me how i can fix it!?

Select "last known settings that worked" option at boot.

Best of luck

If you cannot get into Windows Safe-Mode, even through the logon Administrator account, then the only resolve is a Repair ----

Something is wrong somewhere. the boot.ini file is not inside any folder, not even
c:/windows/
The file is at C:\boot.ini
