Windows Xp will not boot up + i cant boot up in safe mode
Posted on 2006-03-20
I was using my pc and then it restarted, came up with an error warning, after about 1 hour it did the same again, but now i can get into windows. Windows Xp will not boot up + i cant boot up in safe mode, safe mode hangs on gagp30kx.sys and then restarts. i have tried building a boot disc by selecting Tools,Folder Options ,show Hidden files and and folders,then View Tab. unchecked "Hide Protected Operating System Files (recommended) and copied the files ntldr,ntdetect.com and boot.ini onto the disk. i used the disk when Windows XP won't boot,place the disk in the drive,and then re-boot,the computer, but Windows did not bypass the basic boot files on the hard drive, instead it did'nt read the disc stating that it is not a system disc. i tried using recovery console but it gets stuck on examing the disc (i say stuck it's been examing the disc for 10 minutes now), i have a retail windows xp disc, i could install windows with out fornmating the hard drive, thus keeping all my files. Any advice would be helpful.
