i cant acces windows

Specs: windows xp 21
lets try again.i would like to mention firslty that i dont know much about computers.now lets get to the matter at hand.this is exactly what happened.i couldnt get into safe mode,this prompted me to look for sollutions on the net.1 guy suggested that i enter 'msconfig' in the 'run' section.a window pops up with a few tabs in it.if you click on one of those tabs it gives you the option to tick on safe mode.i ticked it and rebooted my laptop.now the dillema i am sitting with is that i still cant get in to safe mode and the only way i can untick the box is when i am in safe mode. Because i ticked that box,i cant acces windows through normal mode.whenever i reboot it,it goes to that screen wich says:safe mode,safe mode with networking,last good configuration,start windows normaly etc etc.now wich ever one i choose,it jus reboots and goes back to the mentioned screen again.the only thing i can acces is my bios.i tried setting it to 'restore default' but that didnt help either. Please help

Well, many things cause this rebooting, so here is my list in most probable order: Viruses that have corrupted the windows boot up files, a faulty stick of ram, bad power supply and dying hard drive. Since you can no longer boot into windows to even attempt to fix the problem and you are a novice it might be best to take it to the shop. If it passed a ram test, I could try the Windows #2 Repair option (not recovery console), which is difficult if you are doing it for the first time.

I read what you posted carefully. If things were working great normally, then why did safe mode come into play? As you say you have no way to get back to uncheck it, so I pointed out a possible way in, but I'm just a Network Engineer. Best of luck

Probably a lot less stress for you if you did. But you should not lose any data from this event, just a few shot nerves!!!
