Got a problem with my PC just now (DELL Dimension 3000, XP home); When ever i turn on my PC, the login screen does not appear, but with only the "hourglass" on that blue background. I left the PC at this stage for at least an hour, but to no avail.
This happened after playing Championship Manager, and trying to open Media Player. After it failed to load, Ctrl + Alt + Del showed it was not responding.
I then, after the Media Player failed to shut down, restarted my PC to find the login situation as described above.
Will I have to re-install Windows?
Can anybody ?
