Thread Starter 
Hi just finished building my new pc and windows installed fine. But now after all the files had been installed its stuck at the very begining loading screen which says windows xp professional and the blue bar is whizzing past. I reset it and its stil doing the same, been going for about 15 minutes now. Its not froze because the blue bar is still moving.

Reinstall windows and make sure you are at STOCk setings for EVERYTHING, GFX, memory and cpu. my windows installations crash whenever I install them overclocked.

If the above solution does not work, try underclocking your ram by about 25MHZ, it helped me aswell

if the second does not work, try REFORMATING the drive completely (not quick format)

If that does not work, use one of those programs to detect and attempt repair of bad sectors on Hard drives

There are several reasons why this may be happening. A device could be hanging while XP is trying to initialize it, the CD could have a corrupted sys file, etc. Try re-seating everything in the box (RAM, CPU, PCI cards, everything). Also, remember that the first boot always takes longer at that splash screen.
