I am having a repetitive and extremely frustrating problem with Windows, lately. I recently reformatted my HDD and reinstalled Windows (XP Home, OEM), because I was having difficulties getting into Windows. It would manage to get to the splash screen, and the loading bar would scan across about halfway, stall for about ten seconds, then start moving again, and eventually it would stall again, then move again, and then so on and so forth. Windows would never boot. I am familiar with this meaning driver trouble, but all my drivers were updated after the reformat. Anyways, I reformatted again. It worked... just dandy for a little while, and I spent about six hours using it to play Team Fortress 2 with no problems or hitches. Then, I turned it off again, and in the morning when I booted it the same effin' problem happened again. It seems no installation ever manages to last longer than two days without crashing in the same DAMN way. I could REALLY use some help.
