I have Aspire T135 and everytime I boot the PC, it freezes at the Windows XP logo screen right before going into Windows. I checked memory, hdd, cdrom, etc. I installed a PCI slot video card and changed...
try booting in safe mode, and watch as the drivers are opened, as safe mode boots. take note of the last driver or file which it stops on before freezing or resetting, then look up (google) the name of the file or driver (.dll file), to find out where your problem is. if it turns out to be a driver file associated with your phone modem, then it is your phone modem which is preventing the computer from starting.
if that doesnt work, then strip the computer down completely to 1 ram stick, the cpu, mobo, video card (or integrated) and 1 hard drive. disable any unnecesarry integrated components (such as the soundcard) in BIOS, and remove any usb devices or pci cards which are not absolutely necessary to boot the computer (such as a phone modem card, an external hard drive or wireless network card).
the computer should boot once stripped down to the bare essentials and all unnecessary hard ware is disabled/removed. if it boots, then add back/reenable your extra cards, and devices one at a time, until you find the device which is keeping it from booting.
if it will still not boot when stripped down, then it is an essential, such as the motherboard, which is at fault.
