My laptop uses Windows XP Home Edition, SP2. When I start the computer, it powers up fine, but then on the screen where windows is loading, the little blue bar that scrolls from left to right goes for a while and then just stops. When I restart, I am able to start in Safe Mode. I have no devices connected. I have tried the following, none have worked:
-Last known good configuration
-Using a set-up disc to perform an in-place upgrade to try to repair the installation
I don't know what else to try. Since it starts fine in Safe Mode, it seems like I should be able to identify the problem, but I don't really have any idea how.
