"File symc8xx.sys caused an unexpected error (4096) ay line 3540 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup.c.

Press any key to continue."

When I press any key the machine tries to boot up normaly and shuts down just like before.

This is as far as the computer goes with the disk.
It took about 20 tries to get it to even try to boot from the disk

I ran the scanner. It had 45 alerts..It renamed 45 files..it gave 27 warnings
I removed the disc and turned the computer on. It ran a diagnostics (Disk Check) from a blue screen and promptly shut down.
Same old thing. will not boot to normal mode. Will only boot to safe mode....when I can get it to boot.

Further testing is required for your computer, that I cannot do online.

Therefore, I will recommend to take your computer to the closest computer repair firm, in which they can do diagnostics.

Thank you for all your help. I have suspected for some time that the computer would need to go to a repair shop. It must be a hardware problem of some sort.

Thank you again..erg
