Hi.I apologize for the lack of info but its my brothers computer.

Win xp refused to boot ( previously working ok)
Changed boot options in BIOS to CD
Placed XP disc and turned on pc.
Win xp starts to load but does not get as far as the blue screen that asks you to "Enter - press R - or F3".

It just says - loading files & hangs.

Try to load onto safe mode, just hangs without getting there.

Anything else I can try?

when the pc is powering up, have a look at the LHS of the screen, it should display the amount of memory that is installed. If there is a fault there, i think it would give you that sort of problem. also is the XP disk a bootable disk, and not just a recovery disk, i think they are not the same (some will put me straight on that.)
