I run Windows XP Pro on a Pentium 4 3.00 GHz PC. I suffered a few power outages yesterday. XP was able to boot after the first outage. Right after the boot-up, the second outage hit. Upon rebooting, XP takes me to the screen that provides a few safe mode choices. Everyone of those choices take me right back to the same screen. The scrolling stops for quite a while when the screen shows it is reading MUP.SYS, and then the PC reboots and takes me right back to the screen with the safe mode choices. If I choose to start normally, I can see a flash of the blue screen--too fast for me to be able to read it. I am currently running BART XPE on CD-ROM to do a CHKDSK /f /r on the system drive. If that fails to fix the problem, what's the next best step? I am looking for a solution that saves me from having to reinstall all my applications, which can take days.
