I’m running a Windows XP desktop. One day, it’s running fine. The next day, I go to boot up, and the machine never gets out of the startup routine, it just reaches that screen where the bar repeatedly scrolls to the right, and freezes there.
My computer has essentially been “dead” this way for several weeks and I can’t figure out how to get the machine to boot. I have tried booting into Safe Mode and other modes available in the BIOS (?), but I’m not sure what to do once in there. Nothing has worked.
