    okay so i just made this new computer, its been having boot problems lately. It sometimes stalls at the black windows xp boot screen and doesnt start windows, i think it has something to do with my sata harddrive. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Why do you think SATA is the issue?

    im not sure, when i was installing the sata driver during xp installation it said error or something but it said starting windows xp right after

    im on the computer right now, but sometimes it boots sometimes it doesnt, its making me angry. Also i just installed norton, and now i dontw ant it, when i uninstall it takes like a bajillion years for one bar is that right?
    and then sometimes it give me errors

    I wouldn't let Norton within spitting distance of Sprocket...it's absolute crap, rivalling AOL for it's pervasiveness and obnoxious behaviour.

    86 it NOW!

    I'm somewhat disturbed hearing about your SATA driver install erroring out...not good.
    If you do a repair install (NOT the repair console) you don't lose any data/apps (theoretically).

    Jeez.
    All this crap would go away with a wipe/reload of the OS.
    Do it now, get over it and begin to enjoy your new PC.
