On my mom's computer, sometimes windows xp (home edition) won't boot past the loading screen. We have done a system restore to earlier date and it still will stop at the loading screen. We have only gotten it to work by pure luck I think. Computer has done this about 6 times now. I don't know a whole lot about fixing or working on computers and need some help to help her. I have pressed F8 and gone through the selections but have only tried: start back at the most recent configuration where my computer last worked, start windows normally, and safe mode (which lists a bunch of drivers *no clue, sorry). Can anyone help me out, please? Thank you.
