Hi

Have you tried updating all your hardware drivers - especially your graphics drivers?

Good luck

Do you have a extern hard drive plugged in or USB-pen? Some laptop have problems to start with those connected. Some have updated their firmware and/or drivers to solve the problem but not all of them. Then the solution I found was to connect the drive or pen after windows started.

If you are running XP on a 500 Mhz laptop with only 128 Mb of ram you will have problems. I would put at least 512 Mb of ram in it, It may be that it having a hard time loading all the drivers and other things. I might be that with a normal power up every thing can not load because some of the memory is still in use but with a hard boot it will clear all the memory. Do your self a favor and get more memory.
