logo screen. It also hangs during startup in safe mode and when trying to
boot fromthe windows CD. Please help!!!

Boot from the XP setup CD, to see if it works at all.

If so, try an Upgrade setup.

I have tried booting from the setup disk - this hangs halfway through
loading drivers
I have tried booting in safe mode - same result. I have even tried booting
from a boot floppy disk with no success. I continually get to the windows
logo screen and then the computer freezes with the "progress bar" in various
positions. Any ideas would be appreciated!

A system that won't boot to CD has some piece of damaged or incompatible hardware that needs repair or replacement. My guess would
be that the BIOS needs to be reinstalled, or upgraded.

Just to clarify the problem a little, I tried booting from the Windows XP
setup disk again a couple of times. I first tried the Automated System
Recovery - the computer froze almost as soon as this was selected. I then let
the computer try to boot up from the CD - it went through the process of
loading drivers OK but again froze when it tried to load start Windows.
I even tried another startup in Safe Mode - the screen showed command lines
referring to drivers but stopped when it reached
"Windows/system32/drivers/Mup.sys" Coincidently the "Num Lock" on the
keyboard went out at the same time.

Does this help focus in on the problem?
