Hope someone can help me out here. I am running an old PIII 400, 512 Ram, XP SP2 and it freezes right after the Welcome screen. I see the Welcome screen for approx 2 mins. and then it goes to a blue screen and just hangs there. I see the mouse and am able to move it but there is nothing but a blue screen. If I hit ctrl+alt+del I will get a pop up box saying TAK MANAGER HAS BEEN DISABLED BY YOUR ADMIN, but only after about 2 minutes. I can't boot into Safe Mode, same result (blue screen), I have tried a repair install, (same results). I have swapped out video cards and RAM, and I have also disconnected any thing unnessessary(modem, NIC, etc) and cannot get this computer to boot past the welcome screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
I have even followed the instructions from Microsoft to clear the memory incase it is stuck in hybernation mode!!! NO HELP
