Story is My motherboard just blew up in a round about way, so off I went to my computer shop while I thought good chance to upgrade.
Bought a new motherboard and processor got it all in fine but needed a clean install.
Dug out my discs and installed windows again all went fine, got my drivers and such installed and cracked on with the windows updates. all went fine with the first 2, but when i got to the SP2 update asked to restart, did this. But when it rebooted it got past the bit where is says
"windows XP" and had the blue scroll bar thingy at the bottom (yes thats the techinal word for it
It flashes a blue screen for about 1/4 of a second with lots of writing on dont know what it says. then reboots its self, and this turns into a visious cycle. So I reinsall windows again run through all the updates again and it does it again, reinstalled windows a 3rd time but have not installed SP2 and it works fine. But the thing is I need SP2 for reasons.
ANyone have any ideas of how to get around this?
