winxp pro computer will not load. It splashes winxp logo and nothing else!

By blitz9092 ·
I turned on my win xp pro computer and it shows the win xp logo but WILL not load up the rest of the system. The display turns pitch black and the display/monitor light suddenly changes to orange/amber/deep yellow and it stays that all day. I can do F8 for a Safe Mode bootup. Even when I restored to a previous day, it still will not boot beyond the "winxp display logo". Please help.

Video driver issue?

by Alpha-Male In reply to winxp pro computer will n ...

What if you boot into safe mode, change your video driver to something like standard VGA and 640x480 then reboot? Any help?

If so, it's a problem with your video drivers or something conflicting with your video card settings. Try uninstalling and reinstalling it. Try different settings until it works.
