    Very similar to the following problem but i do not have a raid, and it seems that this PC has a raid and i don't, plus it was never really determined what the actual solution was.

    The basics: XP Professional Boot up screen, right before the windows loading screen, or direct after the F8 Menu if you hit "Start Windows Normally..." it will just lock up, no HDD activity, blank screen. now BSOD, nothing.

    All 3 safe mods work fine.

    Ran chkdsk /r in recovery.
    Ran proper fixboot procedure.

    Went into safe mode and checked the event viewer.

    The only concerning message i got was: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
    AmdK8
    Fips
    nod32drv

    Formatting really isnt an issue since i can back up anything i need through safe mode. However its just the fact that the Windows gremlin has struck me again and i must defeat it once more.

    I highly doubt this is a hardware issue as it is more of a driver/software issue.

    Anymore information for me, or from me that you need, i would be extremely happy.


    Thanks for your time.
