Hp a1250n athlon x2 3800 2gig ram xfi xtreme music x1600pro I had just plugged a printer into my machine to try to get it set up. It just sat there (susposed to be plug and play), so I went looking for a install pack online. While I was doing that the system froze. I let it sit for a couple minutes and it remained unresponsive. I tried alt-ctrl-delete, and nothing happened. I tried a hard shut down and I rebooted. Everthing seemed fine until I reached the XP screen with the scrolling bar. It freezes up every time I get there. I waited a few minutes, and did another hard shut down, and then went into bios. I made sure everything was in order, then I tried again. Same thing. I eventualy ended up doing a clean install of xp through the recovery disks. Same thing keeps happening, even if I try safe mode. Any ideas would be appriciated. Im guessing a bios problem since the recovery disks worked fine.
