[Help]XP Stopping Just Before Logon Screen


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I've had a recent problem with my Windows XP Pro SP2 install. It loads up until the logon screen. At this stage there's nothing on the screen, no cursor, just a black screen. My keyboard still responds to Numlock on/off, etc, so I'm guessing it's not stalled. 1 out of 3 times it boots up properly and I get the logon screen. I've tried safe mode and it boots everytime perfectly.

Does anybody have any idea what this could be, or maybe a suggestion of someway of monitoring the boot process?

When a machine boots fine in safe mode, but has issues booting normally, it's going to be a driver issue, or a startup service/startup item issue. Use msconfig when you are in safe mode to disable all non-Microsoft services and any and all startup items you can, and reboot normally and see what happens.
