    Ok, I was playing a game on my computer (Battlefield 1942). Suddenly, my whole computer freezes, I can't do anything, there is nothing left to do except hitting the power switch to turn it off. That's exactly what I do. I turn my computer on, everything is going fine, until the screen where it asks you if you want to Start Your Computer Normally, Start It Using the Last Good Cofiguration, etc... I choose to Start Your Computer Normally. I do that, and it goes to the Windows XP Professional Loading Screen, and it seems like its going fine. After about 6-7 seconds a blue screen shows up for about a fourth of a second, and there was no time to read it, but with good timing, I took a picture of it with my digital camera. It says that this maybe was caused by new hardware installed in my computer, and I just bought Battlefield 1942. I restart my computer again, and it just keeps going through this cycle. I even left the computer on all night, and still nothing happened. Any help from anyone would be great at the moment! Thanks.

    **NOTE**- If this in wrong forum I apologize.

    I had this exact same problem a while back when I went in and started messing with my boot screen trying to change it. If I remember right, I ended up having to get a Windows XP installation disk. You can boot up with it (if you have one) and use the repair console to fix the problem. You might want to see what the more experienced techies in here say, but if I remember right, that was the ONLY way I ever got mine to boot up. Hope this helps.
