Sorry I am so late in responding to this post, I have been out of town for several days.Not as such. Ran a disk check a few days ago but since then nothing at all. just normal startups and shutdowns.
HOWEVER, the previous week had to swap my HHD onto another Sata controllor as that was playing up, could be a dying M/b although this seems more like an O/S thing to me or a corrupted entry in the system.
I'll try to get into safe mode
I can select SAFE mode but it wont complete. Goes into the same re-boot cycle again.
From what you mentioned, it sounds like the problem is in switching to another SATA controller. The FAT does not recoqnize the configuragion since the switch was made, and cannot figure out what to do.
Getting the boot failure (continuous loop) could be the results of a dying hard drive or corrupted boot files. If the hard drive is not going south, you might be able to reinstall the OS from a CD.
You could also have contracted a virus or trojan horse. Either of these will put you into a continuous boot loop. If that is the case, run the virus/trojan horse scanning software from CD or in safe move (provided you can boot into safe mode).
