I have a PC which has this problem:-
On boot up comes up "windows XP dod not start up peoprely" meessage and the normlal soptions like select safe mode, aslt known confirg etc etc.
But. which ever method you select it goes through the boot up process displays blue stop screen, and then beeps and reboots. The blue screen is displayed so quickly that cannot read it!
I thought I would try installing XP on the PC in a different folder - but when I do Windows XP install tells me that the drive is not properly formatted for an install - and I of course do not want to reformat the drive as I will loose the data.
Any ideas as to how I can get this machine to work again?
