Right... here is the info for my PC:
Microsoft Windows Xp
Media Center Edition
Service Pack 2
Manufacted by MDG Computers Canada
Pentium 4 CPU 2.93 GHz, 504 MB of RAM
The problem that seems to occur with the pc has started recently... but it's bugging me every since.
When starting the computer, it hangs at the windows xp logo screen with the moving bar. Restarting makes the computer give me Choices on whether to go to safe mode, networking safe mode, or command prompt safe mode. It also gives me the choices to start with the last known good configuration and to start windows normally.
All the safe modes work but the last two (most useful ones) don't work - it just hangs once more.
I've tried doing a repair install, but it gives me TWO errors:
Errors occured during registration of Windows Media Center (see log for details).
An error installing a part of the .NET framework. (version 2.0)
I"m sorry, but i don't have the exact details of the problem (i've done so many repair installs that i've grown tired of it), but the next time i do i'll repost the accurate description of the errors.
Now, the repair install continues after giving the two errors, and it installs just fine. It works too after. After doing a repair install, it restarts just fine. However, after shutting it down again.. same problem occured. Next time i did a repair install, i uninstalled all the .NET framework i had (v.1.1 to 3.5), and reinstalled .NET Framework 1.1. Two errors appeared when i started up my desktop - all having to do with .Net Framework 2.0, so i thought that might fix it. After that... everytime i shut down the computer, it installed 13 updates, and the next time i started it after shutting it down it worked. It installed the 13 updates each time i shut the computer down. I thought my error was fixed... it worked without having to do a repair install each time.
However, now its back to the same problem - it hangs on the windows xp logo screen, and the windows repair install just temporarily fixes the problem.
Can anyone help?
