I'm having a real problem with my PC at present. As of yesterday, when I try to start it up, it gets to the black Windows XP screen and will not proceed any further. The small blue bar just keeps scrolling along without anything happening.
Worse still, when I reset the machine and it comes up with that screen that says 'Windows did not shut down properly last time' and gives me options for what to do, none of the options appears to work. Each option leads to a list of white text scrolling up a black screen that all start with things such as 'multi disk rdisk partition WINDOWS System 32 Drivers', and it always then seems to fully freeze on one that says 'agp440.sys' at the end, whether this is of use to anyone or not, I'm not sure.
The PC was working fine just the day before yesterday, and I can't really think of anything I did that might have changed it in anyway. The only out of the ordinary thing I did was to install the Canon software for my new camera, not sure whether that could make a difference?
I'd be hugely grateful for any help or advice that anyone could offer
