    Exclamation problem on boot up

    when i turn on my system it gets to "this computer stopped unexpectedly section" after a resatrt from a windows update.
    after 30 seconds its on the "continue normaly" as my g15 doesnt up so i cant change to safe mode, or last good settings. it then restarts the computer and does it again!!!!.
    ne ideas?

    personally i would run a windows repair from the cd, that will remove all the patch's and reset the registry to allow you to patch again.

    sounds like somethings a bit screwed up and would benefit from a repair..

    you wont lose any data running a repair, but please remember XP will have its pants round its ankles after a repair and will need patching straight after

    Find yourself a ps/2 keyboard and use that to choose the right setting. And whilst you've got it, go into the BIOS and see if there's an option for using a USB keyboard and set it to Enabled. That way you won't have to dig up an old keyboard again.
    If you can't keep up, stick with reality...

    Just to clarify, does this mean you can't access the system restore function of safe mode?
