Why does Windows XP keep booting and crashing? Answered

Whenever I try to turn on my Windows XP computer, it runs for a few seconds through the booting process, shows the "blue screen of death" and crashes and tries to restart. I need the computer to work so what can I do to fix this?

heres another thing that might helpWhen you install Windows XP, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

* When you restart your computer, you may be prompted to use the Last Known Good configuration. When you do so, your computer may stop responding (hang) during the restart, and each time you restart thereafter.
* You may be prompted to run ScanDisk. When you do so, your computer may stop responding (hang). If you do not run ScanDisk, your computer may start correctly. However you are prompted to run ScanDisk every time you start your computer, and if you do so, your computer may stop responding (hang).
* When you restart your computer, your computer may stop responding (hang).
* If you try to restart your computer in Safe mode, your computer may stop responding (hang) when Windows XP tries to load the Agp440.sys service thats another thing

Sounds most likely to be a bad device driver. Boot in "safe mode" and back out whatever your installed most recently, and/or manually trim the configuration down until you've eliminated whatever is crashing during boot up.

I just tried. It shows a list of stuff and froze on blah/blah/blah/DRIVERS/agp440.sys then the screen went black and did it again.

Login using Windows Safe mode and resolve whatever problems are stopping normal boot.

You may (or not) have caught a virus/trojan that's tweaking your system

I looked that problem up.

This is what I found.

I have never personally encountered the problem, so all I can do is point you to potential solution.
