My computer will not go past the splash screen

By wrigbon ·
I just decided to reformat my computer, I don't think it had ever been done, so I reinstalled the windows xp pro cd, and installed a new display driver. When it asked if I wanted to restart now or later I chose now. It is now stuck on the slash screen, and will not allow me to enter BIOS, or anything else. What can I do?

Turn off and Unplug the system

If this is a NB remove the Battery.

Now which Splash Screen is it stuck in? The System/M'Board Makers Splash Screen or the Windows Splash Screen with the Moving Blue Bars on the bottom?

If it is the makers Splash Screen there is nothing that you have done to the system here it has experienced some sort of Hardware failure and you'll need to post back with more information like the Make & Model of the Computer.

However if it is the Windows Splash Screen you can still enter the BIOS press whichever Key is listed on the Makers Splash Screen and when the BIOS Setup Screen Opens make whatever changes you want to.

If it is the Windows Splash Screen on the restart you should be given the option which Mode you want to Start in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode with Networking or Normally.

Using the arrow keys highlight Safe Mode then press Enter and see if it starts now.
