My computer had gotten really super slow.I had ran defrag and it got slower. Tried using system restore to an earlier date. Now the windows xp screen comes up, the bios load and then it stops. It has a line blinking in the upper right corner of the screen and that is all. I can get f2 and f12 to work, but not f8 for starting in safe mode. What can I do?

Which computer do you have?

If it's a Dell or some other branded machine you might be able to do a restore to factory settings, but this will make you lose all your files.

Do you have a backup of your files?

Sorry it took so long to reply. My internet has been out all day. It is a dell dimension 2400. We finally had a friend check it out. He said the hard drive was out. Thank you all very much for your time.
