"After installing my Belkin network adapter I was asked to restart my computer. After doing so the COMPAQ screen took much longer than usual before moving onto the XP loading screen, where the loading bar froze."
Is the Belkin network adapter a "add-in" or something built in ?
If XP worked alright before you installed the Belkin Adapter apparently the adapter is causing an issue.
Try going to the manufacturers website & DL the newest drivers for your Belkin Wireless Adapter.
If you want to confirm that the adapter is the problem uninstall it in Safe Mode, remove it, & restart the computer normally.
If it starts to the desktop with no problem I would get a different network adapter.
No one will trust me with a spare harddrive since I killed two this month . What I might do is try and install in in another PC instead and see if it boots O.K.
I suppose it could be a lot of things, but I would start first with your hard drive. Do you have a spare hard drive you can use to test (use for a temporary install)?
Could you also post some information on your pc? (i.e. hard drive model numbers, motherboard info, etc) Thanks! Good luck!
