"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change 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.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what cased the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

I reformatted HD and took battery out to reset and still come to this screen when I click start windows normally I am left with a gray screen that doesnt go any futher.
I am using windows XP home edition. What is causing this problem? How do I correct it? Could it be a HD issue?

It does not seem that trying again would be much help. Can you install Windows again? Or maybe start the computer with a boot CD?
There's big work to do, and that's why you are here ~ Caroline

I will try safe mode and last known good configuration and see if that will work. I sure hope so, this computer has been down for 2 years and I'm trying to get it back up and running for a friend.
