I have had this many times when the operating system or one of the drivers has become corrupt. Try loading in Safe Mode (which could well affect the necessary repair) and when this is finished try a normal boot. If the former works and the latter fails, reboot in safe mode and run SFC /Scannow with your OS install CD in the drive.

Windows ME doesn't have SFC.

Boot from a windows me boot floppy disk http:\\click here if you haven't got one)

at the A:\ prompt type

scanreg /restore

and then press ENTER.

try and reboot without the floppy.

do u have any idea how to fit a new fan to a tiny a360?

If your laptop was overheating I expect it would cut out completely.

So I do not think you need the fan.

more likely a driver / harddrive problem if sticking at the ME page.
