Computer freezes during boot

March 8, 2010 at 08:50:35
Specs: Windows XP Home
The system will boot properly if the LAN cable is not plugged in. With the cable plugged in, the computer freezes after user password prompt. This is consistent with the onboard LAN as well as a LAN card I installed.

Any thoughts?

Does this also happen, when you let the cable connected to the computer but disconnect the other side of the cable from the router or switch?

Also boot without network cable.
Are there errors listed in the event viewer that give a hint to that problem?
