    Windows XP won't boot all the way to the login window, just to a blank screen and mouse pointer that can move.
    I have Windows XP Pro, with the login were you type the user in.
    Now I get a background screen with a working mouse pointer, nothing else not even a error message. Same in safe mode, so I can't get to system restore ether.
    I know it's not the hardware, ran several diags on it, Quicktech Pro (http://www.uxd.com/), plus memtest and Western Digital's Diag.
    I ran my custom UBCD4win bootdisk on it and did several updated anti-virus and a chkdsk. (http://www.ubcd4win.com/) They found nothing. I also removed all items in the startup (including "run" section of the registry) So I can open all of the registry files without problems too.

    I also ran a repair install, but it comes back to the same blank screen after the first reboot during setup.

    I also tried the drive in another computer and did a repair setup with no difference.
