Everytime I boot it up it starts to load it shows the first windows logo screen then it says

"Press any button to continue"

So when press something it seems to reset it self and goes back to the boot up screen and goes through the process again and ends up at the same screen never going into windows.

btw I've also been having recent problems with my MS-DOS programs where once i try to start them the screen gets black and freezes. Can anybody help for any of these?

Hi MrKain,
I have experienced similar problems and it is a matter of trying a number of fixes until you hit the right one.
It may be a software problem so a reinstall of windows could fix. Or, I have had video cards or sound cards cause similar freezes. A faulty memory module is also a possibility as too is cabling. Not a very exact answer I know but computers are like that !!.
Good luck,

Hello Mr. Kain, before the windows Logo appears press F8 select safe mode and see if it boots, than you will no if it is a software/driver problem. If that doesn't work than try step by step confirmation mode and select YES until the machine recycles, remember where that point is then do it again and select NO at that same point to see if BOOT process gets past it. If you find the offending startup item write it down and do a search in files and folders to see which folder the problem file resides in.
