My 4 year old Dell w/ Windows XP Service Pack 3 won't boot up. DOS message screen shows:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Any ideas? I have tried rebooting using each option multiple times with no success. Thanks.

When you mention "no success", what actually happens? For example, when you try to load the OS in Safe Mode, does it load or does it simply reboot the PC and present you with the same options?

Do you have the original XP installation disk handy?

Please be specific with your problem. Give us more details. What happened if you choose Safe Mode? Does it go to windows or it will reboot once again?
