Hi,

You don't mention if you can get into Safe Mode or not....If not then likely you will need to do a reinstall of XP. If that is the case then you probably want to do a "Re-install in Place" so you don't lose all your settings and such.

If you can get into Safe Mode, then I would start with a re-install of the video driver, as they tend to be the most problematic if they have become corrupted for some reason.

In device manager, under Display adapters, highlight the adapter shown and delete it. Reboot your PC and windows "should" reinstall your video driver, or at-least the standard VGA driver that XP defaults to in such cases.

Another option to look at is within the Boot Menu, select "Last Known Good Configuration that worked"....and see if that will correct your problem.

Notes

By selecting Last Known Good Configuration, you can recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware.


This feature does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.

When you select Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in the following registry key is restored:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet



Any changes that you have made in other registry keys remain.

If you can start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, the last change that you made to the computer (for example, the installation of a driver) may be the cause of the incorrect startup behavior.


if this fails to fix the problem try to repair in safe mode



How to start the computer in safe mode

When you start the computer in safe mode, Windows loads only the drivers and computer services that you need.

You can use safe mode when you have to identify and resolve problems that are caused by faulty drivers, programs, or services that start automatically.






If the computer starts successfully in safe mode but it does not start in normal mode, the computer may have a conflict with the hardware settings or the resources. There may be incompatibilities with programs, services, or drivers, or there may be registry damage. In safe mode, you can disable or remove a program, service, or device driver that may prevent the computer from starting correctly.

To troubleshoot startup problems in safe mode, follow these steps:

Click Start, and then click Shut Down.

Click Restart, and then click OK.

When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.

On the Windows Advanced Option Menu, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press Enter.

Note Num Lock must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

If you are running other operating systems on the computer, click Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on the list, and then press Enter.

Do one of the following:

If the computer does not start in safe mode, try starting the computer by using the Recovery Console. If you still cannot start the computer, look for possible hardware problems, such as defective devices, installation problems, cabling problems, or connector problems. Remove any hardware that was added recently, and then restart the computer to see if the problem is resolved.

If the computer starts in safe mode, go to the next section to continue to troubleshoot the startup issue.

Use Event Viewer to identify the cause of the startup problem

View the event logs in Event Viewer for information that can help you identify and diagnose the cause of the startup problem.


To view events that are recorded in the event logs, follow these steps

Do one of the following:

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.

Start the Event Viewer snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC).

In the console tree, expand Event Viewer, and then click the log that you want to view. For example, click System log or Application log.

In the details pane, double-click the event that you want to view.

To copy the details of the event, click Copy, open a new document in the program in which you want to paste the event (for example, Microsoft Word), and then click Paste on the Edit menu.

To view the description of the previous event or the next event, press the UP ARROW key or the DOWN ARROW key.


Use this tool to help identify possible problem devices and device conflicts.

To do this, follow these steps.

click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have

extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occurred

you might be able work your way through the problem

Getting late started and many virus


If your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
1.If your computer is on, shut it down
2.Power on your computer
3.Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
4.In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
5.Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
6.Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
7.When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
8.Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
9.Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program's normal steps to run a virus scan
10.After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
11.Close out of your anti virus software
12.Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.Thank you for using FIXYA.

Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand each branch of the hardware-tree, and remove all the components installed by that "chipset-driver".
Keep doing them all, and then restart your computer.
Windows should re-detect your hardware, and load the correct drivers.

If that fails:
Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start and navigate to "System Restore".
Choose a check-point dated at a date/time before your screw-up.
Choose "restore" to that date/time.
Follow the on-screen directions.

I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing items for you to check and or try.
Try booting into safe mode and see if the same thing happens.

Choose safe mode with network configuration installed.
If the unit runs without shutting down, it is a program conflict and not a hardware issue.
Run this safe mode start up, with no external devices connected.
