Last Week I got a call from my friend saying “My computer keeps restarting after there was contiunes electricity blackout” When I turn on the computer it always restart every time after displaying Windows Logo. I tried to fix the problem using Safe mode but it dosen’t work, and then I try last known good configuration but I have the same result.
To fix the issue start the computer with bootable Windows XP OS. Select second option Press “R” (To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press “R“)
Type in the administrative password and hit “Enter“. If you don’t have an administrative password, simply press “Enter” to continue. This will bring you to the following command line: C:>
Type C:>dir to check the list of directories & files.
It prompts with “ An Error Occurred During Directory Enumeration” reason for this is that system cannot read the files in the Windows or INF directory.
At the C:> command prompt type “Help” for a list of commands you can use.
To fix the problem use this Command line “C:chkdsk /p /r“
Be patient as this may take a few minutes. (It may even take a few hours on a slower system). Make sure you don’t cause any interruptions once you are done with CHKDSK type in “Exit” to restart your computer, your computer will boot in normal mode.
