    Hey,

    I just recently upgraded my Windows 98SE machine to Windows XP Home. It went through doing everything normally. But when you try to start Windows it locks up and freezes while it is still on the Windows startup splash screen. So far, the only way I can get on is through Safe Mode, otherwise it all locks up. I have no idea what to do to fix it. Please help!

    Here's a link to a great article from Gateway on fixing your problem. Let us know how you make out.

    I have been using XP for 2 weeks and loving it.

    Hey,

    k... but what's the URL?

    And to remention, the only way I can get into my computer is through SAFE MODE. When I try NORMAL BOOT or whatever, it freezes and locks up on the Windows screen that says something like "Windows XP Home Edition, Loading . . ." But in SAFE MODE, I can barely do anything and its pissing me off. Non of the programs or games can open in it and my family is without a computer, except the one I'm on now, which was preloaded with XP Home Edition and is working great.

    Please help, you can email me at the following address: [email protected]
