Sounds like a driver or software problem, for a clue as to what it is go to control panel>administrative tools>then click on event viewer. Look on the system list and and application list for exclamation! marks or a red cross 'X' and click on line right click then properties for a clue. your rating is important

Windows xp startup problem

You may need to "wipe" or reformat your entire C drive to be able to install Windows program again. I would suggest installing WIN7 program as WIN XP is at its end of life cycle for that operating system and Microsoft may not support it any longer.

If possible try installing WIN7 once again, and if requested to reformat or do an entire install, choose YES.

WIN 7 should then reformat your C drive, erase everything that is on it and then install as WIN7 program.

Be sure you have your program license key to install WIN7.
