    Hey,

    I hope this is the right place for this, I need some help with Xp, I had reformated my computer and it was doing fine until I had to restart my computer and then when it was restarting and the windows xp screen shows up with the blue bar runing along the bottom in the middle showing its loading then it freezes and nothing else happens I was wondering what could be wrong.

    Tips:

    Some computer people told me I might have to "flash my bios" no idea on how to do that.

    If it's freezing on the startup try removing external devices like USB cameras, USB drives and such. Try restarting again.

    Hey,

    I went and tried that but I still seem to have the same problem, Would it matter if my keyboard needs to have a cd installed to do some of its options like open microsoft from a key.

    unplus everything but keyboard, mouse and monitor and yurn your system on. If it works, reboot and plug in a different device. Keep doing this till it happens again. The you will know if its a device causing it or a bad config after install. You could also try hitting F8 as your booting before the Windows screen and select "Last known Good Configuration", this may work as well.

    Well I had installed a dvd player and a dvd burner, but they were working fine, I burnt a cd and everything, but when I put this dvd into the dvd burner my comp turned off, and restarted and after that things started to go bad, This is it was a burnt dvd of my aunt and uncles wedding, and I think there good of been a virus on the DVD, But I got some computer guy coming to my house tomorrow hopefully he can fix it.

    It could be the DVD Rom creating problem but that's something we wont' wanna touch immediately.

    So I take it that your system is not booting even in safe mode? If that's the case, you have serious problems. I'd go towards hardware and the first thing to check is RAM.

    If you have more than one chips of RAM, use one at a time.
