    If it locks as it's playing the startup sounds, it might be sound card related. Turning it off might be a challenge. Is it onboard sound? Try disabling the sound card in the BIOS. If an add-in card, simply remove it.
    What do you mean by "everything loaded"? Is it a fresh XP install, or did you add a thousand apps already.
    What's the error say on the BSOD? Stop code...anything....
