|Hope someone has some suggestions (with thanks)...|
My sons pc won't boot...it will do the following..displays the winlogo with moving blue bar..then briefly goes black as if it's about to go to desktop, but then goes back to the winlogo with moving blue bar.
Have tried booting in safe mode...get to a black screen with safemode in each corner, then the screen goes (Desktop?) blue with an hourglass & stays like that.
Have tried booting safe mode with command prompt with the thought of stopping some drivers loading but don't seem to get a command prompt...loading items still go wizzing past on the screen.(& then symptoms as basic safe mode)
Have tried booting from windows "recovery" cd (as I didn't build this paricular (3yr old) pc). only option I seem to get is to reinstall over existing windows (or another place etc)..no command prompt option seems available.
There are no UB devices attached.
winxp home 32 bit. sp3
Abit kn9 sli mobo
4 gig ram.
Nothing has been installed of late to cause this cock-up...(Except speedfan was recently installed & not sure if son has been on the pc since installation, but probably has)
Have tried to search for an answer but where others can get into safemode & I can't appear to, the answers I found didn't help..
Tnx for any info..Andy.
