I've had problems with Windows locking up or restarting. It has only worsened with time and with every attempt at fixing it. I did follow the steps leading up to the Hijack this log posting, but it didn't fix anything, so I decided to try and repair Windows.

When it gets to the "Installing Windows" screen when devices are being installed, I get a prompt looking for "usbechi.sys". I don't know where to look for it and the default location in the address bar is "C:\windows\temp" but I can't find it there. What do I do? Thanks.

Wanted to edit my first post, but anyway...used my laptop to find a similar file and found it. I had it point to that in the Win XP repair and it restarts the machine, but nothing boots. I just get a black screen. Now everytime I let Windows boot, it takes me straight to the Win XP set up screen and the problem of the missing usbehci file starts again. Thanks.

Alright...new problem. I got the missing file fixed, but after that the PC restarts and my monitor goes into what seems like hibernation mode and I can't do anything. All I can do is restart again and I'm stuck doing the same thing over and over again (trying to repair XP).
