A friend bought a new system case/motherboard cpu/fan/memory build kit as his pc was getting old
Posted on 2009-05-05
I had him copy the drivers for the new motherboard to the root of his HD, and then he put the old HD into his new kit.
At first the system keep cycling between the Safe boot menu (Never allowed a normal boot) and rebooting, so I used his original xp Home CD and did a repair on his installation... Then I could boot into Safe mode and safe mode with networking but not normal mode... Then I reapplied SP3 and installed all the drivers for the new motherboard, but when he boots it still comes up in a modified safe boot mode screen with safe boot, safe boot with networkinng, Last known good configuration, and boot normally... Last know good configuration and normal boot both force a reboot of the machine... I can still get to the desktop in safe or safe with networking mode... I checked the Boot.ini and it looks normal.
I am also scanning the system now for trojans/virus, with Malwarebytes antimalware, but I have never heard of a trojan forcing a PC to boot into the safe mode list... Aside from rebuilding his OS from Scratch, which is something he does not want to do, any suggestions on how to get this pc booting in normal mode would be appreciated... I cannot create a boot log as that option is not showing on the selection screen, but I know from looking at the device manage /hardware profile that all the drivers are loaded and appear to be working normally in safe mode boot... The system board is a
G31-M& TE with an intel processor... Any Ideas on how to fix this problem?
