I have attempted several times to install Windows Service Pack 3 on my Windows XP Professional system (with all current SP2 updates). The installation proceeds normally, however, on restart the system hangs on a blank screen.
I have read many of the related postings, but none have mentioned hanging at this point.
I am able to start-up in safe mode; when I do, I can run some applications as expected. When, however, I then do a restart in normal mode I once again hang on a blank screen.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
