descriptionComputer Looping From Blue Screen To Setup

My Dell Pentium 4 is going from a blue screen to Setup. If I select Safe Mode, safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration, or Start Windows Normally, the computer tries to boot up, I can see the Microsoft Windows XP, then a flash of that blue screen with writing on it, then the Dell screen, then back to the setup screen with the setup options.

Hi @GypsyCowgirl

Have you install any device driver lately.

Is there a chance you can post a screenshot of the setup and blue error screens for us to see.

We Need to Diagnose Your BlueScreen
1.When you boot your machine, press F8 to list the startup options, exactly as you would if you were trying to enter Safe Mode
2.Select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure", as shown here:



3.When your system BSODs, write down the STOP error code, as well as any written out error message back here. The STOP error will always appear, but the message may not. You are looking for this:

The first corrective action you should take is to get past the error message and run a CHKDSK /R so that the computer can boot into Windows. From Recovery Console, and then run CHKDSK /R.

Hi @GypsyCowgirl

Recovery Console can be access from Windows XP CD. The recovery console enables users to recover their Windows computer from any serious issues.

The Recovery Console is usually accessed via booting from a Windows installation CD. Recovery Console can also sometimes be accessed from the boot menu, but only if it has been preinstalled on your system.
