I have XP Home SP2. Just recently I decided to attempt to fix an issue that I have been having with my CPU. I have a 2.4 P4 and it has only been running at 1.8. I changed the CPU/DRAM speeds to 133/133 to get it to run at 2.4 which it did.
After two days the computer went to a blue screen after logging in and rebooted. After it finished with the POST it went to the XP loader screen (w/ the XP logo and status bar below). Normally the computer screen will flash then show the the user accounts to log into. Now it will finish with the XP loader screen and just go to a black screen with the pointer arrow.
I have tried using the XP cd to do a repair installation but that will not work. Do you have any suggestions on how to further proceed? Some suggestions that I have gotten are that my RAM may have gone bad ::shrug:: it doesn't make sense to me but I am open to anything.
