Hello, when I turn my computer on, it starts up, it goes to the Window XP screen, then doesn't go any further. Just stays on that screen, with the little blue bar continuely going ?? Any ideas?

Go into your BIOS and check your system time.

I had the same problem.
Checked BIOS and noticed the time was wrong.
I reset it and rebooted.
Same problem.
Checked BIOS again, time was wrong again.
Replaced CMOS battery and haven't had the problem since.
