Why is Windows not loading.

Question

Windows will not load. The initial loading screen comes up, but the computer keeps cycling thru trying to load the desktop, but it never gets there. Instead I get this: "While initializing VRD" and "Windows protect". That's all. Sometimes it comes up "While initializing VKD" but I've checked and it is not keyboard related. Also, I have the same probs trying to load Windows in Safe Mode.That's it. What can I do?

Try performing a cold boot which is turning on the computer from an off position Or boot from a good system floppy disk If you access the A prompt, type C: to access the hard drive, if you get the C: then you have a Operating System problem.
