Hi, My 5 year old XP laptop hangs on the blue 'Windows XP' screen and does exactly the same when i try to start in safe mode, also the same in 'Last Known Good Configuration'. I do have an OEM XP CD.

Please can i have some/any tips as to what to do?

If a card was in the PC I expect SIW would have found it.

Leave the file if you don't fancy it

Use SIW to see what motherboard chipset is installed.

In SIW either look under devices or video, should show the card.
