If Windows XP Does Not Start

If Windows does not start, restart Windows by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature:

Start the computer and then press the F8 key when Windows begins to start The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

Use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.

If a boot menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER Windows XP restores the computer to the most recent restore point.
