Have Window XP SP2 and when startup PC takes forever to boot up. During loading Windows then getting blue screen; Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your Hardware and Software manufacturer for any Window updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or removed any install hardware or software. Disabled BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

I had not added any new hardware. The only thing I can think of was that I added an audio cable to listen to a speakers on my labtop, but it did not requeire and installation of software.
