My laptop that is running XP randomly stopped starting up. It makes it to the Windows XP logo screen and then has the thinking bar at the bottom, in motion, but it stays like that indefinitly.
I've tried starting in safe mode, and restarting, didn't work.
I tried starting in safe mode with system restore to a point in time where I know it was working. didn't work.
I started in safe mode, ran spy bot, and virus scan. Nothing wrong in either scan. It wouldn't allow me to run Ad Aware.
I've had no signs of any virus, malware, adware, etc. Yesterday, I just tryed to flip open the laptop (which was on at the time) from being closed and got a black screen. I held down the power button to shut it off and try to restart it, but it's been like this ever since. I just can't get it to startup Windows.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
