    I have just formatted my old PC and installed winXP professional. Everything went as expected, I also configured my internet connection and activated windows, then I restarted. Now the computer hangs in the "Welcome" screen and stays there. What could the problem be? I haven't installed any graphics drivers or any other device except for my modem. I also changed the colour depth (I think that's how it's called) in the monitor settings to 32 bit (from 16 bit). Maybe because no video driver is installed, could that cause a problem?
