My computer is staying on the loading part where it says Windows XP and stays there forever... I have loaded it for about an hour and a half and still nothing. I noticed after awhile my keyboard lights blink and the PC freezes for about a second but that's it. No respond. My computer is a Compaq Presario. Oh, and I tryed doing what you guys told me to do last time but all it did was mess my computer uo more. I used to be able to go on Safe Mode with Networking but now when i load it it stops at multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS\System32\DRIVERS\agp440.sys

Last time you guys told me to go to Run then type in chk/dsk or something like that. I cant remember fully sorry but that didnt make it any better. It just made Safe Mode get damaged also.

I am currently using my downstairs computer to figure this out so help!

Hello,
Do you have an XP disc? If so,
Run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). (Courtesy dsenette)
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors

Do you have the technical ability to remove the hard drive from the effected machine, and put it in the good computer?

You will be.
Read this.
Post back with any questions you may have.
One rule, always have the computer unplugged when working inside of it.
