    screen locks up on account name prompt XP

    Can anyone help

    As soon as the account name is pressed on the opening screen
    the system just locks up and the sound is similar to a stuck CD

    The only way to start it is press reset and try agian
    sometime it can take 5 times this process to start ?

    Thanks Shane

    If you can still gain access to windows then try looking in the event log to see if there are any error messages, may shed some light on the subject.
    Live long and prosper!

    You can also try going into safe mode and logging into the Admin acct to see if that works.

    I recommend safe mode also. It might be a poorly written driver causing the problem.
