Default windows wont boot up stuck on start at last know config screen

when i start my computer up it makes me go to the screen where you can select "last known configuration, safe mode, start windows normally, or with command prompt. When i select something it shows the windows xp logo and then after a few seconds it restarts and teh whole process starts over again. I have selected all of them and when i select some of tehm instead of going to the windows logo it has a whole bunch of words.

If anyone can help me i would apreciate it

thanks

looks like the only thing left for you to do is a windows repair. do you have the xp cd?

the 'whole bunch of words' is safe mode isn't it? does that restart too? sometimes it gets stuck on a certain line, but given time it will get over it.

had a similar problem with my old windows installation, i ditched it and installed a new windows. miraculoulsy 6 months later i accidentally selected this one at boot and it worked (strange).

anyway ditch it. install another windows on a different partition and back up your stuff then start fresh.
