    Recently I installed a new usb 2.0 hub and a removable hard drive. This itself had been giving me errors over the weeks, random blue screens etc, but it wasnt a major problem. Today I decided to start up in safe mode to fiddle with some more settings (I did this from the msconfig file), and the pc stayed on the 'Shutting down windows' screen for a long time. Eventually i decided to turn it off manually. Now on restart regardless of whether I try and boot in safe mode or normal mode or last good config, I get a blue screen before the splash screen. I noticed in safe mode, it always blue screens in the same place whilst the drivers are loading up, so I think its a corrupt driver (I had previously tried to uninstall the drivers for my hub in order to reinstall, but the confirmation dialog screen would hang each time, thus the safe mode restart). its a STOP error 0x0...07B. Is there a way to somehow disable certain drivers, bearing in mind i cant startup, and I cant find my XP installation CD (how annoying!!!!).
