It's not the hard drive.

It's not the memory.

It's not the motherboard. Well, not that I can tell, at least.

It has to be the processor.

Yep. It's been a long and horrifying couple of months. Well, maybe not "horrifying", but certainly pissing me off.

What's wrong with it?
Is it saying "Sausages!" over and over again?

It won't boot completely into Windows. I've changed out the hard drive and the memory. It's doing the same thing. I can only assume it's the mainboard and/or processor.

Have you tried using the recovery console through your XP CD?
Can you boot into safe mode? You might be able to reset to a save Restore Point if you can.

I've had similar issues with a laptop once. Took a Windows reinstall, but I finally got back.

Oh, yeah, man...I've tried it all. It won't even boot up in normal Safe Mode. Not even the Command Prompt Safe Mode. No recovery console. Nothing.

Hm. Well, if it were the processor, it wouldn't make it past POST, I wouldn't think..

..but then if it won't even boot from CD. Hm. Well.. I have access to an arseload of reference books thanks to work. Maybe I can give you a hand one of these nights.

True.

It would probably just be easier to get a new basic machine.
