  1. Can anyone please help.

    I have installed Win XP pro, and all worked fine for a day or so and now when I switch on it never gets further than the welcome screen.

    It did move passed once when I hit ctrl/alt/del

    Sounds like you are having a problem with something you installed that is trying to start up with Windows. Try booting into Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly after the computer POSTs) and taking a look at msconfig to see what is trying to load on startup. If you remove things that are not needed, then try booting, does it help?
