Default Windows XP will not boot

Hi to all,

A friend dropped his POS off today.....
It will not boot into windows. he says it wouldn't do anything and he thought it was the on board video which is possible bcuz it wouldn't come up on the screen at all. he installed a video card and now it comes up but it stops the boot and gives the.....
The last boot to windows did not complete would you like to boot into safe mode, normally...etc...
No matter what choice you make it just sits there! Even the count down if you dont make any choice stops at 24 secs and hangs.

I did notice that when it starts up it gives the standard single beep but, then a few secs later it gives another single beep!?!

Mobo - SOYO SY-K7VME

Any Ideas what the problem might be?

Try contacting the computer manufacturer...if it's hp, contact hp tech support. If dell, then dell tech support.

edit: oh yeah...be prepared to be on hold for long periods of time.
