and check for dust, also that the fans are all rotating, then go from there.
i have been running windows xp without any problems then suddenly one day i could not start up. AFter trying different options including booting from disc, and also encoutering the BSOD its has now seemingly given up and will not do anything. I start and the screen always freezes at the same point (at the start of windows xp where the medal is shown). I cannot boot in safe mode or from last configuration as i cannot get that far on the system. Sorry to be so vague but has anybody got any ideas before i call my pc doctor.
