  1. Windows appears to be loading and then hangs - there is stuff displayed on the monitor etc..

    Can take up to 3 or 4 times for it to eventually load all the way.

    The machine functions normally after it has finally come on.

    I'm asking this for a friend so I don't have all the spec.

    windows xp sp3
    1gb ram
    it'sa compaq desktop type of deal (ex-office computer)

    Maybe a faulty power supply or hard drive

    Hi - thanks for that.

    These were my initial instincts; I'll see if we can get it sorted.
