Windows XP pro no go!
Hi guys

Shut my pc down last night at 12:30 and just booted it up. Windows loads only as far as my wallpaper so I have no icons on screen (however my screensaver still kicks in). I have tried restarting and going into safe mode but it has the same problem.

Any ideas would be great.

Did anything out of the ordinary happen when you shut it down or a few moments before it?

Maybe try safemode with step by step driver loading. Load as little as you can and see if that works.

The fact that your PC is not hanging and still loads its screen saver probably means that your problem is software related. Maybe your registry just went to the eternal registry lands?

Ok went into safemode without networking and managed to get windows to load. Could this be driver related?

Ok got back into safemode with networking woohoo but still hanging on normal boot

This is possible, yes.

Try reinstalling your chipset drivers in safemode.
If that doesn't work, try disabling your NIC in the BIOS.

You could consult the event viewer in the admin tools. Maybe XP logged something on the problem.
