Knackered Laptop- windows won't start


Recommended Posts

My laptop is knackered! Can't get windows to start at all and have no idea what the problem is. Its an HP with xp home edition on it. When I turn it o the following screen comes up:


We apologise for the inconveniece, but Windows did not start succesfully. A recent hardware or software may have caused this.


If your computer stopped responding, started unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.


If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.


Then it gives me these 5 choices:


Safe Mode

Safe Mode with Networking

Safe Mode with Command Prompt


Last Known Good Configuration


Start Windows Normally


Then it gives me a counter to when it will start automatically


No matter what option I choose it shows the blue HP Screen, flases another blue screen for a split second, and then returns the first screen.


Can anyone help me?
