A buddy of mine has an older Windows XP machine and when he boots up this freezes on the screen:http://i.imgur.com/wMn6j.jpg
Here's what I've done to try to figure it out
-Tested hard drive with two diagnostic tools: PASSED
-Tested RAM with Memtest86+ with 10 passes: PASSED
-Installed another hard drive, installed Windows 7, ran Prime95: PASSED
-Ran CHKDSK: PASSED
I can't even boot into Safe Mode because the screen instantly freezes like that. I've even tried booting a Windows XP install disk and get the same problem. I've worked on a lot of computers but this one has really got me stumped. If anyone has seen this before or has any thoughts I'd love to hear them! Thanks!
