xp stalls on boot up

  sunnystaines 19 Jun 11

xp sp3 media centre on a sony laptop.

just recently on boot up the windows welcome screen comes up quickly but then goes to a blue screen with just a cursor arrow for a couple of minutes before the desktop screen appears.

any ideas anyone please

[tried chkdsk,ccleaner,defrag,reg defrag,run SAS,MBAM, Norton security on full scans] unable to update drivers as the sony drivers not been updates since had the laptop]

Have you been into msconfig recently and accidently checked diagnostic startup instead of normal?
