Hello,
Every time that I power on my computer, a black screen comes up with text. It says "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this."

After this, there is a list of choices: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration and Start Windows Normally. Now, if I hit enter on any of the Safe Modes, a bunch of code at the bottom of the screen appears. Then, my computer restarts. If I hit enter on either of the other two, the Windows XP loading logo thing appears, then it restarts again. So, I basically can't get into my computer. HELP!

Hi there,

Remove all recently added hardware like printer,scanner,usb drive,usb harddrive and restart the system,if problem persist then only option left is to make a system reair by booting from windows installation cd,you will get the instructions from kioskea Faq on link below:

Hello Shiku

Your issue is strickly a hardware failure, you must take your machine to a repair shop.

Sorry
