Try booting into safe mode (tap F8 during bootup- keep tapping until you get to choose safe mode. If you are able to get into safe mode, without it freezing up, then your issue is going to be software related. You can try system restore, back to a date when the computer was working fine. Also try to remember any new software/hardware you may have added before this started. Post back and let us know if you are able to get into safe mode fine.

Before setting it back with system restore, do a virus scan as well as adware and spyware. Setting it back with a virus in there will cause more problems.

a repair option is booting with xp cd and selecting the repair option(without erasing your data)..now don't be fooled cause there's too repair options..(don't use the recovery..)..i think it just pressing enter to setup xp..and then f8 to eula..then recovery option... if i'm wrong i'm sure someone will correct me. hope this helps you out. good luck on getting it fixed.

well if you cannot get into safe mode without it freezing then something bad has happened and because you do not have the windows xp cd, theres not a lot you can do..... unless you have another os cd like windows 98 in which case you would have to format the computer and then install that to keep you going.

reformat would probably solve it.
But before u reformat check the temperatures, maybe the cpu is overheating.
