I have a custom made PC...my other computer No brand name.

Customer Question

I have a custom made PC...my other computer No brand name. Windows XP. When I had to shut off the computer yesterday, it restarted and showed a message page that said, "Sorry for the inconvenience, etc." Then gave me 5 options only . Each time I press one, the computer just keeps looping back to the same message page. The automatic restart needs to be disabled and I can't get into START to be able to do this. I CAN get into BIOS... that's the only thing I can access. So, in short, Windows is looping on start and I can't break the cycle. The only Windows XP disc I have is for DELL.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
