Whenever I start Windows I'm welcomed by the following:

"We apologize for the inconvience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware of softwawre chnage might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last KNown Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

Ifa previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Recent button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with COmmand Prompt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

STart Windows Normaly

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the higlight to your choice."

First. I didn't install anything.
Second. I woke up from sleeping and it was at this screen.
Third. When I choice ANY option from that list, it takes me RIGHT back to this screeen.

....Any help?

Btw it's an XP
