Specs: Windows XP, 2G
Immediately upon start up, the computer freezes when the Dell Logo screen comes up... it's not even a complete load with the screen showing broken lines...I have a dell that is running XP and IE...any idea?

Possible that the harddrive is not running at its normal speed,
freezing up or slowing down. Or has quit.
My computer took 20 min. to boot the other day.
I was watching the HDD activity indicator light,
and it would remain on, and not rapidly blinking.
Mechanical devices do have problems.

Harddrive manufacturers have software for download for testing HDD.
