My HP desktop with Windows XP frozen up in start up with a blue screen
showing HP logo and <Esc=Boot menu> <F1=Setup> <F10=System recovery>
It doesnot respond to any of these commands or all other keystrokes I've tried . The light underneath the start button is continueosly on. I also tried
to push f8 button but no response again. I tried reboot putting recovery disc on CD drive , no response .

No new hardware or software were loaded. It started freezing suddenly after 10 - 20 minutes of loading . No programs running , task manager open
with 98 % free , freezes suddenly . The cooling fans are working.It is only 2 years old , and used a few hours 3 to 5 times a week . All virus and spyware programs were uptodate

Now I am at a point I cant start at all . Do I have a software problem , or
a bad hardware in the tower ? Please help , and thank you very much

Please, please, please someone answer this! My computer just did this--the exact same symptoms. No new software, no unusual use. It crashed, so I restarted, and now it's frozen on the blue screen that usually flashes just before loading.

I've tried letting it sit, I've tried safe mode, I've checked to make sure the keyboard's functioning, since it isn't accepting any commands whatsoever.

I've searched all over the internet to no avail, and this is the ONLY place I've seen something about a problem similar to mine .. and it's got no responses! Help!

I have solved my problem and hope you will also do :
- Unplug electricity and take all wires (mouse , printer , display , internetetyc.) out.
- Remove the cover of your computer case.
- Make sure that your hand is earthed , i.e.touch the case with one hand
continiously , and remove the cmos battery.
(How to remove the cmos battery :

- Leave cmos battery out at least 2 minutes. this will remove old settings.
Godd luck !
