I'm running an Acer laptop with windows xp and when I start it up it gets stuck at the windows xp startup logo. It was weird because I was just using it and the next day after I start it up the problem started. When I press "Windows + U" which I think is shutdown and this comes up.. http://i29.photobuck....y/SI850131.jpg

Sorry for the low quality image, I just took that with my camera.

If anybody has any idea on how to solve this problem, It would be highly appreciated.

PS: sorry for my bad english I'm still learning.

Hi kachaw welcome to Geeks 2 Go... :)
can you boot into safe mode...if so try system restore...go back about a week..
BTW there is no photo at that link

and its supposed to be Windows + tap the U key TWICE to shutdown
Windows + U gets you a utility manager...was it like my screen capture
