    First of all, format the OS partition.
    Try installing XP again.
  3. i allready format it 6 times nothing happen the problem was in the first place freezing thats y i try to format.... he only freezes in normal mode... in safe mode was just fine
  4. Well then I guess your HDD is failing.
  5. Ah, it works in safe mode, a clue.

    Same lockup in both XP and Windows 7? It could be your system is not compatable with Win 7 if XP works. Hard Drive errors would normally show up in safe mode as well, not just a regular boot. Although I would check a new drive anyway.
