Hi all

Im posting on behalf of a friend.

He's currently having problems loading his computer up.

Hes on a amd 1800 athlon with 256mb ram with xp home sp2

Computer was working fine up till yesterday, he shut it down and had gone back to it and it will not go past the first screen.

It seems to freeze on the loading screen, just after its checked the computer ram etc.

It says windows xp the underneath is a blue bar that goes across, its just keeps doing that.

(sorry but its hard to explain)

Any suggestions?
Thanks
