Check the CD, make sure there are no harsh scratches Check all wire, be sure the are connected correctly, just to be safe give them all a push to see if they slide in any The Hard drive my be bad, doubt it though My XP pro sometime appears to be not responding, but after 5-10 min, it finishes loading the OS Try just letting it do its thing for a while.. walk away, have a cookie, catch a episode of CSI, then come back and see what its done...
