My PC froze on Sat when I was getting downloads again and playing a song. I left it for 1.5min when nothing happened I pushed the reset button.
After that I could not boot up XP, It goes through the POST fine then I get the Black screen with the Windows XP logo and a status bar below it flashing back and forth then a black screen.
hangs there for 40sec. LCD monitor tells me that there is no connection. then the pc resets itself.
I can boot up in Safe Mode with networking and that works fine. can even connect to the net.
What I have tryed but get the same fault.
1. Repaired XP by runing the Recovery in XP cd - Tried again same answer
2.Backed up files and then ran KillDisk over the HDD (Writes 00 to every sector to sanitise the hdd) also gets rid of all partitions.. Ran the XP CD with intergraded SP2 set up a partition and installed a fresh copy of xp. still came up with same problem.
3. Looked at my BIOS and everything looked ok but reset to default settings all the same - Nothing
4. After reading some forums I tryed the FIXMBR under Recovery Consol - Still no luck
5. Have used memtest86 and the memory is fine
What would you suggest to try from here??[font=Comic Sans Ms]
