    I've split this into its own thread. Please do not hijack another thread with your problem.

    See if Advanced troubleshooting for general startup problems in Windows XP or Troubleshooting the startup process or XP Startup Troubleshooting offer any help.

    I work on computers and had this exact problem a couple of weeks ago. I repaired Windows XP, tried a different hard drive, disconnected the CD and DVD ROM players. All no help. I put the PC back to its original configuration and removed the video and NIC cards. Windows XP worked fine. No hang ups. I don't know which card was causing the problem. Since the PC had both an on board video and NIC built into the motherboard. Perhaps a reseat of those cards would have fixed it as well. Hope this helps in your trouble shooting.
