Initailly, it got as far as the black background "Windows XP Pro" loading screen. The "activity" indicator bar stopped moving.
Then tried to reboot in "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" , and the system appeared to stop on-or after - the agp440.sys file loaded.
DEtails of PC:
It's a fairly old 2002 Intel Pentium 4 1.5Ghz processor...not over clocked or anything!
The motherboard has an Intel i845I chipset, and is manufactured by Chaintech.
The Award BIOS is dated june 18th, 2002 and had the ID: i845ITE8712-JA69VC0CC-00
It has 512mb memory
and almost 40GB freespace on a new -ish HDD
MSI brand video card, nVidea GEForce FX5200
Any ideas what to try next?
