Restart the computer, and then press the F8 key to display the Windows Advanced Options menu.

Click Safe Mode.

Follow the prompts to start the computer in Windows XP by running in Safe mode as an administrator (for Windows XP Home Edition).

Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

Click the Startup tab, and then click to clear the programs that you added.

Click OK, and then follow the prompts to restart in Normal mode.

In Normal mode, start the System Configuration Utility, and then add one program at a time to determine which program has prevented you from being able to restart your computer normally.

Using this way should help you with your problems in your computer, but if you are running Windows XP, it may not able to work at all
