Reports from "TECH" tell me that "style xp" and SP2 may have issues. I know of no cure other than to toss it and go native.
hi, i recently installed a new motherboard gfx card and processor. After this my system was having trouble loading up which i sort of fixed by deleting service pack 2 in safe mode, which aloud me to load windows XP professional in normal mode.
I then decided to re-install the operating system (upgrade, not fresh install) to see if it would solve a few problems like it freezing when detecting hard discs. Also a while ago i had this program called style xp which aloud me to alter the boot.ini file so i could change the picture on the loading screen. This sort of split it rather than change it fully so it gave me 2 options at startup: windows xp, or windows xp(bootscreen) which was the new picture. After i installed the new hardware, when i clicked bootscreen it gave me a blue screen for a second with writing flashing down it then it rebooted instead of loading windows.
When i started re-installing xp pro on my system, it came up with the new picture i used the 'style xp' program to create instead of the standard windows XP professional logo screen which i thought was strange as i thought if it was re-installing it would change everything back to normal, and ofcourse it freezes everytime 2 seconds after the screen is displayed so i can no longer get into windows.
Can anyone suggest anything i could do to fix this? i would rather not delete everything on my hard drives..
