There's something wrong with my computer, it keeps freezing at the black windows page that has a loading bar at the bottom [ it freezes at the bar ] . it happened many times before, and i inserted the window xp cd and used the recovery console to format C:, then installed a new window. however, while i was installing, the setup keeps restarting and simply worked after it restarted about 5 times. the computer was working fine again, until today when it show that window update and that it needs to restart the computer. when i restart the computer, it wont open up and just freezes at the window page. i tried leaving the computer off for 3 hours and unplugged all wires, hoping that it'll reset, but it didnt help. what should i do now? should i just format the C: and install windows again? whats making this problem anyways? thanks in advance

Try running chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console.

Maybe you should try running a diagnostic on the hard drive. What's the make and model of your computer?

download memtest
copy/burn to cd
start your computer with cd in
let memtest run for several passes
