    just a question ok, when you start your laptop does it tell you if your hard disk is going to spoil? how long was since your last format?

    Some specifications r required !! Is it a standalone/ connected under Lan.... when does it hang, like just before login / after supply user/pass, it shows message "loading your personal settings...." However, this type of error message shows when network resource is down/ pc/laptop connected to a network.

    There could be a lots of different things wrong with it, but probably an easy way to fix it would be to run a repair install of windows again. It keeps all ur files & programs, but it reinstalls all windows files so any corruptions or missing files will be fixed.
    For this purpose u need xp setup disk to do this.

    I would suggest logging in via Safe Mode (press F8 at startup and select Safe Mode with Networking) and running a malware scan using multiple tools. You may need to uninstall a program or service that's running at startup and causing the system to hang.

    I'd boot in safe mode like Kevin mentioned and check your HD properties. How much space is left on you drive? You may need to delete some files to provide room for temp files and virtual disk. 40gig HD seems small, how old is the notebook?
