it gets to the windows splash screen then goes black and doesnt do anything atall

also, i tried booting into safemode, safe mode command prompt and safe mode with networking and all of tthem come up with a list of things that are loading up, and when it gets to btkrnl.sys it freezez and wont do anything (again ) i noticed the name og the file that it froze on (btkrnl.sys) would this have anything to do with my bluetooth dongle ??

any help would be much appreciated

Hello,

Have you made any siginficant changes to your system recently? For example, installing a Service Pack?

Have you tried booting into Last Known Good Configuration?

You run a repair from the CD you used to format and install windows on this computer.

So yes, your installation CD.

XP Repair install

Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, read this Warning#2!
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

I have a problem like this, too. Now, I've gotten as far as it looking like XP was going to install (it said 39 mins remaining on the setup screen) do you mean that if I continue, I'll still have all my stuff on the HD from before?

You do not want to re install you want to choose the Repair fuction when you are selecting your HD or partition.

I already selected repair. Then it took me to a screen where it said it was verifying files and folders and then it rebooted and after that it took me to that installation screen.
