My problem started with the installation of the new xp update from 1/11/06. I Tried to turn on my computer but found that my computer freezes on the start up screen with the xp logo and the blue progress bar. The progress bar continues to go, but my computer stops working and stays with the progress bar forever untill I hit the power off button and restarts manually.
The most intersting part of this problem is I have had this problem before, and it usually takes me 2 or 3 times of restarting, and the problem usually goes away, and I am able to go to the welcome screen. However, this time, I am not able to go anywhere after my 34th time of restarting and telling the computer to either start normally or start with lask know good configuartion.
I also ran a system restore in safe mode to restore back to the way the system was before the service pack, but that didn't help.
I opened up my computer thinking it is dust, but that wasn't the problem. So I am stuck and don't know how to fix this.
Here are the things I have access to:
and basically everything exept my normal windows OS.
