Solved: XP won't load past login screen

1571 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  sakendrick
I have XP Entertainment Home Edition
My system boots up to the user profile screen where I can choose between the two profiles
If I select either profile a blank desktop appears (no icons/no windows task bar) and freezes
Trying to boot into Safe Mode also hangs after choosing a profile

It's a Dell so I don't have the XP cds to try a repair. I do have other computers with different versions of XP installed that are working fine (no XP CDs though)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreaciated

I've also ordered my XP disks from Dell which they are shipping for free.
