Hi There,
I am having problems getting XP to load.
I uninstalled a program that that asked me to close down and restart at
the end of the uninstall process
However when my computer restarted it brought up a screen saying that
it had detected changes to my hardware or software and gave me a number of options to start XP
One option was to start Normal, when selected my computer restarted but brought up the same screen.
Another option was to go back to my last know working configeration(I cant remember the exact wording) but the same thing happened.
It also gives me the option of selecting safe mode but I can not get into that either.
Anyone got any ideas what is happening here ?

you may try to boot from XP cd to repair.

if still no luck, maybe its time to backup your hdd, and reinstall a fresh windows.

Yes, put the XP disk in and you should get some options displayed, one of which I think is a check disk (or similar) option. Can`t remember just what as it`s a long time since I tried to edit the registry and had to fix my clever dick cock-ups.
