Re: Has my PC HAd it !!!! :(
i probs would do a repair installation. doesnt take long and is pretty simple. it will hopefully rule out all the software problems that could be causing this. just pop the cd in. set the bios to boot from cd first, load the cd, and run the xp setup. you will also get to keep all your files and stuff. there are some things you could try in recovery console if you are familuar with it.
