Why Last Known Good Configuration is only way?

    Suddenly my tablet will only start up now using Last Known Cood
    Configuration. During every start up, it stops during the Windows XP
    scrolling blue thing window and won't proceed. So I shut down the power
    switch and when it comes to life I get a screen offering to start in Safe
    Mode, Last Known Good Configuration or in Normal Mode. Normal Mode does not
    do it. So when I choose Last Known Good Configuration, it starts up Windows
    and my pc is alive.
    I'm not sure what changes that I may have made the messed it up or when it
    first occured.
    My WinXP cd is old. It is service pack 1 and I am now SP3.
    What can I do?

  2. Just to understand the scenario:
    How are things with "Safe Mode"??

    However, as this is not a special TabletPC related problem, IMO you
    might better off asking in one of the *XP* newsgroups.
    There you'll meet far more specialists than in here.

    I for one have no idea on how to cure your problem.
    Prior to thinking in terms of re-installing the OS, ask as advised.

    Should it turn out that a fresh install from scratch would really be
    necessary the version of your CD dies it matter (as long as it is the
    TabletPC edition. There never were any TabletPC Edition CDs younger than
    You would just reinstall the OS, then install SP2 and SP3, then check
    which newer drivers the manufacturer offers for download, install what's
    needed and finally let Windows Update collect all available updates.

    Hope this might help at least a little bit
