Question about Dell OptiPlex GX620 PC Desktop
On startup windows just gets stuck. cannot even get into safemode
Your first step should be to put the XP CD into your computer and try to perform tasks from the Recovery Console. I'd suggest a "chkdsk /r" and maybe even a "fixboot". If those don't allow you to get back into windows then try to do a "repair install" of Windows. This is just a temporary measure, to recover any files you don't want to loose. A repair install is a very unstable reinstall of windows, basically installing windows ontop of your current windows install. It can result in the computer crashing again, so should not be relied upon. Once you have all your data backed up I would suggest a complete reformat of the computer.

Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!
