    xp reload – recovery

    Locked

    by fdubis ·

    I had to reload xp pro as the recovery file was bad. It reloaded ok but when it went to reboot it just sits the stating that it’s restarting please wait. It never does, the only way I can get it to start it to run msconfig and shut everything off, it will also boot in safe mode with or without network, but if network is picked it will not connect – can’t even find or ping. Any ideas as to best way to try and recover. right now in safe all appication are there and work except network access.

      What cause your system to crash in the first place? Or why did you try recovery?

      You have a defective Network card. Change it and you will be on safe grounds.

      You have a defective Network card. Change it and you will be on safe grounds.

      Or before changing it. Try the same network card with the system only. Eleminating all other PC cards. that way you would know if there’s a conflict.

      Another thing you can try is take out the NIC and place it back into the slot and make sure it is firmly set into the slot. then try your thing again.

      Did you try going into Safe Mode, then run System Restore to restore your XP box to a point in time before it started having this error?
      System Restore is a wonderful feature in XP.

      tried the recovery and it would not work and after trying to do a reload those files are gone.
      Also the nic card is good
