    My computer freezes at startup on the Windows XP logo screen. When I restart, I choose "start windows normally" and the PC will boot as it should. This has happened a couple times, but doesn't happen everyday.

    Check when you get into Windows that the time and date are correct on the taskbar.
    If they are NOT post back.

    If they are open My Computer, right click the HDD, click properties, click Tools, click Error checking, click check now, click to check BOTH boxes - file system errors and bad sectors.
    Click Start, agree to run on restart and do so.
    This is a five stage check. I twill take sometime. Do Not interrupt it.

    On completion and back in Windows, open Control Panel, administrative functions. event viewer and click application in the left pane, in the main window, scroll to Winlogon. That will be the chkdsk results.
    Please screenshot them
