    after reinstalling xp and updating and restarting till all updates were done the computer wont boot. For some reason it still has xp home in the boot selection menu, but i know this is invalid...i select xp pro and the screen freezes, if i try to boot from the xp cd again it hangs at "inspecting your computer hardware" screen. I tried a different harddrive, reseated the ram, swapped keyboards incase a key was stuck, switched ide cables, reset the bios, tried a different cd drive to boot from but i cant boot from cd or harddrive it just freezes, i've don this dozens of times and never seen this before........Help!
