windows xp getting stuck on boot screen college computer

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi me and my mate are having trouble trying to fix this one problem with the computer i explain why it's a real head scratcher.

We have a computer that wont boot in to xp, it shows the xp screen with the little blue bar that goes accross but it shows it approx 1 second in as its dim and half loaded its all there just faint.

what we have tried:

Diffrent sata cable- no diff
Diffrent sata hdd - no diff
Changed to Ide hdd - no diffrent
but for some unknown reason sometimes it works fine turn it off and on again, some times fine but 85% of the time its stuck.

Mate reccons the board is shot, hope not cus the college take a good month to get a replacement out.

Any idea's would be helpful

thanks

Have you tried booting into safe mode or last known good configuration to see if either are successful? Any hardware or software changes recently?

Have you run any hardware diagnostics yet?

No havent tried safe mode yet, have tired last know config

what kind of hardware dignostics would you recommend becuase we thought about running prime95 but desided againt it because it has stock heatsink, and no fans

prime 95 wont bust up the laptop itll just get hot. lol

errrmmm try taking the battery out and putting it back in again, or runnign the battry dry and doing a FULL charge. sounds to me like a power problemo.

this isnt his laptop. this is on a pc in college we have spent the last week trying to fix. dont think it cpu or anything because it would some times load into windows and would run fine for hours, but as soon as you try to turn it on most of the time it freezes. i thought it was the mobo on the way out, like the southbrige or northbrige is dieing or summin.i will strip it all down nxt week out of the case to make sure it isnt shorting some were. thanks

I'd start with a chkdsk though most of the time I've seen Windows lock up at the splash screen it was time to format.
