hi i have win2k pro and it wont boot up, it gets to login screen and when i type my username it begins to log me in. Sometimes it stays on loading your profile dialogu box and sometimes this disapears and all i get is a blue screen but it thats all it stays at. any suggestions, should i try to reload the operating system system. thanks in advance.

Are there any error messages shown on the blue screen?

Maybe a corrupt profile?

nop nothing just seems to be hanging left if for about an hour on a few occasions, still no luck.

You could try re-installing but have you important data you can't afford to lose on the drive? I ask this because a format and re-install wouild probably be better. I think it's only XP where you can repair or reinstall without having to reload your other programs.
