 Windows XP won't Boot Post a Reply  
From: Angela on 10/28/2003
My Computer gets stuck in a loop at the gray System screen. When the countdown gets to zero the screen goes to black with a bar across the bottom that states "Resuming windows...for troubleshooting and advance options Press F8." The screen then returns to the gray System screen and the loop begins again. If F8 is pressed, the gray systems screen comes up again without the countdown and just stays. Checked all the plusgs, turned the unit off and on again with the power button...no change.

Hi - I am having this same problem and asked a friend for advice, they told me that booting from the recovery CD would wipe out my hard drive...is this true?

Ok, I found something that I'll try. It is found at:

http://forum.soft32.com/win3/hang-resume-hibernate-ftopict4120.html
or
http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=101&threadID=222782&messageID=2236051

It says to basically use the Win XP CD to boot to the command prompt, then delete the hiberfil.sys on the c:\ in the root directory.

1. Put WinXp Boot CD in Drive
2. Press key when it says to "press key to boot from cd"
3. After everything loads press "R" for recovery console
4. Select the drive where you want to access, usually "1"
5. Type admin password for administrator on that drive, Press enter if no password.
6. type "cd .." without the quotes. <Enter>
7. type "rename hiberfil.sys hiberfil.old" without the "" <Enter>
8. type "exit" <enter>
9. Remove CD, let computer boot into windows.

I'm seeing a blue screen of death when I start mine, so this isn't working for me, but it will probably work for you. It looks like mine is having a memory error. I will run memtest86 (google it if you don't know what that is)
