For some reason, whenever the computer is booted up, it gets past the POST screen and when it tries to load Windows XP, the loading bar freezes after awhile and does not load. I can get access to Windows by means of Safe Mode only.

It worked perfectly fine before until the video card died out so I bought a new one. After installing the new one, it wouldn't boot properly anymore.

I know it is not a power supply because I disconnected two CD/DVD drives from the system and it still would not get past the Windows loading screen.

Any help is appreciated.

Go into Safe Mode and remove your video drivers. See if it starts then. If it does you may have bad or corrupted drivers. Download new drivers for the chip maker's site not the maker of the card. If it is an nVidia, got the Nvidia site. If ATI go to the ATI site. If it is a Bob' video with an nVidia chipset stay away from Bob's drivers. No telling what good old Bob has added to the driver pack.
