Last week I shutdown my PC as normal, and since then I have not been able to get windows loaded, it gets as far as the black loading screen, but rather than proceed to the login screen, it just restarts, I have tried resetting my Bios, and changing memory config, standard stuff, didnt work.

I then tried to re-install XP, but after selecting the hardrive and drivers in setup, I would get BSOD, with the mesaage irql_driver_not_less_or_equal

Please help, is this a hardware fault, or can I solve it??

I would say it is definetly a hardware issue but computers are magnificent creatures so who knows. On a whim, try going into the BIOS and disabling USB prior to running your install.

Hi donksboy252...Welcome to G2G!

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's
