I had nearly finished a new instal of xp and allmy programs, I did a second download and instlal of windows update but on restart the machine gets stuck at the first windows xp screen with the black background.

I tried system restore in safe mode but noo luck - same thing.

Can any of you gurus please help?

the start up screen does not disappear - it just keeps going across??

You mean the black background, Windows XP logo, green or blue squares going from side to side? That is the problem described in that link. It sticks there and doesn't get to the next screen with a pale blue background and "welcome".

Blue bars won't stop?

Usually because of a driver problem.

Boot into safe mode (F8) and disable the drivers one by one to find the one causing the problem (graphics driver first).

i am now trying the driver disable. No luck wiht the graphics. the last driver was usb2 so do i have to disable all usb devices?

Also, if I try VoGs idea and it goes wrong can I get back?

none of the driver disables seem to help but i am a bit worried about making a typo with vogs idea
