Default Boot up Problems!!

I have a DELL INSPIRON LAPTOP , running WINDOWS XP PRO SP2. Just recently I turned on the machine ,when it started to boot up and then it just frooze. My wallpaper comes up , I see some icons , but it does not complete boot up process. I can move the mouse around and I see the hour glass. And I have left it running for a while it see if it was just taking longer then usuall but nothing.

Does the computer boot into safe mode?

If it does, in the run box in any account with admin privileges type "Msconfig" without the quotes and disabled anything unnesisary from starting up.
