Windows XP Hangs on Start Up
by cwpreston - 4/30/09 9:23 PM
Running 1.6GHZ PC with 1G Ram with Windows XP service pack 3 installed. It has recently started randomly (increasing in frequency) hanging on the startup screen - the black background screen with the scrolling bar in the middle. Once it hangs I have to reboot in safe mode and do a system restore to successfully start up. This may work for one or two start ups before hanging again. I have reinstalled the OS and still get the same issue.
