Can't get XP to start

By marshallwhiteman ·
PC starts, get usu bios messages but can't get xp going from either the hard drive or the CD. With hard drive I get just a blank screen, with CD I get "setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" The drive spins for a bit then nothing else happens.

Maybe time for the UBCD ...

Ultimate Boot CD.

Download the ISO image and burn it to a CD.

Boot from the CD -it WILL work as it contains its own operating system- and you can check all manner of hardware from within it's plethora of diagnostic utilities.

Post back with its results or for further instructions as per its use.
