  1. ok this is going to sound weird. My windows XP is stuck on the splash screen when I boot up i've tried doing everything even accidently reinstalled it on my back up drive. but when I want to run it on my primary drive all it does is stick on the splash screen done it 12 hours at a time 2 times. I can get into safe mode with networking perfectly fine. all I did was boot up a floppy disc to check contents then PC froze except mouse for an hour so I rebooted since then can't log on. any ideas?

    You could try doing a repaor install of XP. however if it is a piece of hardware that has become defective and is causing the problem then a repair install isnt going to fix it.
