XP freezing on boot up

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

After putting in a new dvd burner into my box, my machine froze on boot up.
it goes past the black screen with the horizontal cobalt blue moving bar, but
freezes at the royal blue screen with the two horizontal yellow brown bars
with windows sp logo on right side mid screen. I removed the drive and
reconnected the old dvd rom, with no success. I put my XP Cd in the drive
and trying to boot up and im getting to the same place. any help would be
greatly appreciated.

    No boot from CD is a BIOS error. I would try default settings for the BIOS or check the BIOS setup report, at least.

    I can get the point where I can select Safe Mode but it still hangs up on the
    blue screen with the logo. I can get into the BIOS without a problem. It
    seems to be after the BIOS when Windows should be booting up. I disconnected
    everything aside from my hard drive as well.

    No boot from CD is a BIOS error. (or a damaged CD drive, or copy of the install disk)

    I am CERTAIN that it is NOT a BIOS error. I was able to use a formatted hard
    drive and load my XP disk and install a clean and new version on this drive
    without a hitch. The problem either lies in my hard-drive or the software on
    my hard drive.

  6. unfortunately, the main booting files of your windows xp are corrupted. you will have to remove xp totally from ur hdd and then install it again. if your xp starts, run the system restore wizard to overcome this problem.
