Windows XP Help Please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I went into the regional and language setting of the control panel one day. I fiddled with a few settings and my computer locked so I rebooted.

Now my computer goes like this on start up:
1. Boots up and POSTs, no problem.
2. Window screen loads up and seems normal.
3.When the default blue Windows start up screen comes up my computer automatically resets or something, and goes back to when like I started up the computer.

There is also problems on Safe mode.
I can get onto safe mode on the Administrator account. When I try to log onto my regular account on safe mode, then load up command prompt box would appear, then restart like above.

I've gotten most stuff off my had drive. But there are some specific stuff that I can only get to on my regular account. Can someone help me? Been trying to save my data for a week.

Thanks a lot for any help, and I mean it.

Go into your Administrator account and do a System Restore to before you started messing with things and then reboot. See if that helps.

If you don't have a password on your regular account try using a live linux cd to access your hardrive and copy what you need from your regular account then do a clean install after that
