XP will not boot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Pentium 4 1.5 gigs ram.  Recently started giving me error for video driver.  Updated driver and same error.   Then it would lock up at the user sign on screen, and when user was selected the machine would re-boot on its own.  I did a  partial restore with the recovery disc and it worked for a couple of hours now it will only go to the blue windows screen that has the F1 and F10 options on the bootm.  However now the machine will not recognize the keyboard or mouse or the  disc drives.  I attempted to boot from the system recovery disc and the machine will not reognize anything.  Do I have a software issue, I don't think so, I thought a hard drive issue but  now that it wont recognize disc drive, keyboard or mouse, I think something more serious.   Any help woudl be much appreciated.  Thsnks.
