    Hi,

    i'm having to boot into windows xp. on power up sytem goes through the windows xp splash screen (with progress bar) and then instead of login prompt it goes just into the blue screen with moveable mouse pointer arrow.

    issue seems to be similar to:

    http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/868463-startup-problem.html
    but recommended solutions didn't help so far.

    symptoms just before issue - was not able to run use some system features - utility to turn off the display, utility to bring up battery info - everything was working fine before this

    what i've tried:
    boot to Last Known Good Configuration - resulting in the same blue screen

    boot to Safe Mode / Safe Mode with networking / Safe Mode with comman prompt - resulting in blank (black) screen with "Safe Mode" in the corners and moveable mouse

    test the hardware (hard drive / memory etc.) via build in PC Doctor - all seems to be working


    i am able to use bootable XP CD from other machine to get into Recovery Console
    i am able to boot to simple live XP using BartPE-XPE usb key and access the hard drive

    could you please help me to find solution to this issue
    thank you in advance
