XP won't boot past mboard splash screen

February 15, 2011 at 08:56:35
Specs: XP sp2, intel duo
XP sp2 self-assembled three years ago. Mboard Asus P5B-E. Not turned off for several weeks (sleep button on Msoft keyboard). Powerup light comes on, drive light illuminates briefly but shuts off when motherboard splash screen appears. Splash screen remains and keyboard unresponsive. Can't access BIOS or Safe. Does this reflect CMOS battery failure?

" Does this reflect CMOS battery failure?"

No, you are having some other problems like memory. If you can not get into the BIOS then you are stuck. Try removing the RAM and reseating it. Try pulling out any perihelia cards that might be causing a conflict. Check to make sure the CPU Fan is working properly. Check the Power Supply Unit. Double check the Keyboard connection.
