WinXP sp3 will not boot. Black screen where Win logo should go after post. In safe mode boot, stops after 3rd item loaded.
Found on the net may be due to MS update or virus, but cannot find confirmed fix. User confirmed MS update occurred on shut down last night and that she got a virus notice before calling me. Another forum suggested chkdsk /p/r, but did not fix. Tried reseating ram and hdd data cable.
This is the 4th workstation I have had to do grave emergency work to this week. Any suggestions to get this back online would be GREATLY appreciated!
