We are using Windows XP Pro, no service paks, and it won't boot up past the blue windows welcome screen before you even get to log on as a user. It is almost like it gets caught there and won't go any further. We have tried reseating the RAM chip, checked the mother board for possible problems, and pulled all the USB devices. We tried using the windows boot disk to repair the OS, that only initiated a reboot and back to the above mentioned issue. We tried booting in safe mode...it still wouldn't get past that point. We tried "last known good configuration", still the same result.
She is an older computer, but she has always been our most reliable system and she does things our other computer won't do...we would really hate to lose her. Any help would be very much appreciated!
