I have an issue with my co-workers PC.
after a restart of his XP system it will not boot properly.
it makes it to the windows loading spash page, but it fails to make it to the login screen. all we get is a black screen.
I have tried the following in this order.
1) booted in safe mode, tried a system restore to last week... no result.
2) booted in safe mode and ran an AVG virus scan with definitions that were updated the very same day.... no result.
3) ran the checkdisk. it booted with the check disk running. took about 10 minutes 100% passed.... no result.
4) inserted the XP CD in order to do a system repair, changed startup boot preferences to boot off the CD. CD spins, but it will not load, blank screen... no result.
I am completly stumped...
any help is much appreciated.
