Computer will only boot into safe mode

I'm running Win XP. This is my spare computer, spec as follows:

Memory 512MB
HDD 40GB
Video Card, GEFORCE 64MB
DVD ROM

HDD and DVD Rom are on separate IDEs.

Problem seemed to start when I removed the CD writer. At first system would boot into windows and then lock up. Now system locks up in the welcome screen and will only boot into safe mode. Any ideas?

Can you try last good configuration or system restore to a date before you made the changes.

In safe mode of course.

I did a fresh install of Win XP today and system still will only boot into safe mode ie. still locks up in the wellcome screen.
