Hi,

I am having a problem in getting this particular PC to boot up normally or in safe-mode with networking option. Booting up in safe-mode only is not a problem though. The OS will boot up ok until it reaches the splash screen then after 5 secs or so, the splash screen will freeze, halting everything, including the keyboard.

The computer is:

PIII 733Mhz
256MB RAM
WINXP SP2 (build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519)

How to Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

If it isn't

Please go here to repair your operating system

If you are unable to run Repair XP

Alternate XP Repair Guide

Use the last one - Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
