ok..... i dont know if this is the right place to post this but i dont know and anyway heres my problem when i turn on my computer it gets to the windows loading screen with the blue bars moving across the screen and just sorta stalls there and continues to do the same thing without out any progression any further for ease of typing i have found a post that basically has nearly identical problem .... although the solution they provide doesnt solve mine . http://www.softwaretipsandtricks.com...go-screen.html although on mine i dont have a dual boot and only have windows xp SP2.... i dont have the installation disc because my copy is a friends copy of windows my computer has been working perfectly fine and normal until yesterday when this happened.... i tried system restore similar to that post but didnt really work.....iv tried checking optimized defaults and fail & safe modes in bios but still doesnt work... iv also tried checking /sos in msconfig and rebooting but when i do that it gets to a blue screen that just display's my version of windows and the amount of memory iv also tried rebooting in the last know good configuration and that still didnt work..... iv checked the device manager in safe mode to see if theres any problems with the devices but there is no exclamation marks next to anything....Iv also tried unplugging all external hardware to see if that is the cause like speakers, modem, router etc and they didnt seem to affect it so must be something else
My computer setup is: 3.2GHz athlon 955 x 4, 4GB of DDR3 ram, Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P motherboard, 512MB ati radeon graphics card.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
ps: im not a very good computer person but ill try whatever you say just could you break it down into steps if its a bit technical.....
