computer will not complete loading windows xp sp3, it reboots. Safe mode hangs up at giveio sys. I tried to repair with WinXP disk, that didn't work. I wonder What the express recovery in the bios does? I haven't read anything that mentioned using that feature. My heart was in my throat when I tried the repair! What else can I do? I'd really like to fix it, and not reformat.
Well, I'm dumb as a stump! I found the article here about repairing XP, and I guess I did it all wrong. I thought express recovery was in the bios, or setup, wherever, and didn't realize that it was the thing I selected.
what now? Or, rather, what tomorrow? Not now. It's too late.
