    Windows Freezes after Startup
    « on: November 09, 2016, 05:26:36 PM »
    Recently, my friend's old computer running Win XP is encountering problem that causes Windows to freeze after startup. It's not responding to any mouse or keyboard input. The mouse and keyboard are both tested working on other system, and other mouse and keyboard are also tested on this system and it doesn't work either.

    It happens like 9 out of 10 times starting the computer. During the "lucky" one time when it works, it works normally, except with error messages (Error signature) like these after startup:

    BCCode : c0000218    BCP1 : E1989490    BCP2 : 00000000    BCP3 : 00000000
    BCP4 : 00000000    OSVer : 5_1_2600   SP : 3_0    Product : 256_1


    or

    BCCode : c0000218    BCP1 : E1A1AFD8    BCP2 : 00000000    BCP3 : 00000000
    BCP4 : 00000000    OSVer : 5_1_2600   SP : 3_0    Product : 256_1

    Despite error message like above, it will works normally. But other times, no error message, no response.


    Note: I posted this on the XP board last week but no reply. I assume this could happen on other version of Windows too.

    Id suggest testing the hard drive with crystaldiskinfo, as well as if the drive is healthy plan on a repair installation of Windows XP.
