XP pro hang@intro no icon build.. end

By rememberme ·
XP Pro hangs at intro sound, displays chosen
desktop pic and stops building desktop parts

only access is to taskmanager (components running
are acceptable proccesses)

is reg faulty? if so how to get back dated
as scanreg can't be found. OEM disks will wipe all
data! cannot allow personal data wipe.
this is a compaq laptop running (was) xp pro.

Have you tried to bring it up in safe mode.
When you get into safe mode run chkdsk. If you have connected any devices be sure they are not connected. First you have to make sure it is not a hardware problem before you mess with the os. A lot of things can lock it up on boot. Bad hard sectors on hard drive, bad memory, wacko audio devices.
