My PC hangs at the Windows logo screen, the blue dots keep moving but thats all. I have tried starting in Safe and the other modes but it hangs in all of them after a few seconds. I tried using my XP disc but that hangs at the "starting windows" line. I have removed all the none essential cards and have only the graphics card is in the slots. Any suggestions would much appreciated.
I looked at and tried some of you're suggestions, but without success it hangs at the black logo screen before it gets to the welcome screen. When I start with the XP disc in the CD drive I do not get a choice. I click any key to start from CD it do's a system check, loads drivers (I think thats what its doing)then hangs at "setup is starting Windows"blue screen.
Thanks everybody for you're help. I tried all the suggestions with no joy, so changed the hard-drive and still no joy, when I changed the drive back i forgot to plug in the ribbon cable for the cd and dvd drives and Hooray much joy it works. But when I plugged in the ribbon in it would not start again, trying each drive in turn I found its the cd drive thats the problem. Thanks again everybody.
