Are you convenient to another comp? If so, download the latest XP drivers for your modem model. Crack open the box to make sure of what you have. Install them - see what happens. Are you able to reach Safe Mode? If so, search for haspnt.sys & sentinel.sys and delete them. Uninstall AOL for now until you resolve the modem. Other possibilities are a parallel port security "dongle"; & video drivers. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
