Over the past month I've upgraded both my Video Card and PSU with out giving my Windows XP install a second thought. So yesterday I tried to boot WinXP and got a lovely kick in the pants when it continued to freeze up upon loading some file named AGPCPQ. I tried everything I could think of aside from pulling the new Video card out (last resort) from loading Optimized BIOS Settings (which hadn't been done since I flashed the BIOS on my last WinXP visit, and the reason I'm trying to get back there) Safe Mode, Last known good configuration, and Start Windows normally. I figure the reason It's freezing and not showing a display on Regular mode is the new Video Card but I should still be able to get into safe mode.
Oh, the whole reason for me reflashing my BIOS? my Ubuntu Studio keep as freezing as well, only it loads and runs for any given amount of time (10minutes to 2 days) be fore doing so and brings up an Error message on Boot (MP BIOS ERROR: 8254 :APCI not connected to I/O) I've been told its nothing and to just disable APCI in the BIOS which didnt help the freezing issue.
