Big PC Prob!!

  alexgray104 18:13 23 Nov 04

My mates PC has just been upgraded to XP Pro and everytime it starts up it does a scandisk. The trouble is - everytime it gets to 72% in the scan disk it restarts. Then it just goes on in a cycle. I can't get it to boot from the XP repair disk and it won't boot in the command promt or in safe mode. Please help!!!!!

Why won't it boot from CD? Is it set to do so in the BIOS? Press F8 at startup and see if you can change the relevant startup option.

What sort of CD have you used?

It's usually Del(ete) to get into the Bios.

Yes, it is usually Del - slip of the brain there...

Or F2, depending on the Bios type.
