Preferred Solution: System crash, repair no work, can't get beyond Windows splash screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: System crash, repair no work, can't get beyond Windows splash screen

Hello and welcome retread mate I think the problem lies in that reg clean out you did. I do not use any reg clean up tools except CCleaner and then I always backup the result before I fix.
As a general rule it is a good idea to back up the registry when you first install.

To do that go to Start > type regedit > right click > run as admin > File > save as - put it wherever you like a stick is good idea as well as the documents.

Now have you "cleaned" the reg in the clone?? if not then just maybe you need to disconnect the drive that is playing up and boot from the clone and reclone that back to the original drive. But for your own sake get rid of that reg cleaner mate.

Minidump zip is attached. Been getting BSODs for a while now and they seem to be getting worse. Right now I cant boot into normal win7 without getting a BSOD in 30 seconds in the context of a new 560 Ti since the old one died (I uninstalled drivers properly using driversweeper in safe mode as well). They usually occur 1-2 minutes after win7 splash screen finishes loading and seem to occur faster if I try to do stuff while computer is loading startup programs. If I can make it past the first 5 mins I usually will not get BSODs unless I restart. Booting into safe mode does not trigger BSODs.

These crashes were caused by a memory exception. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier






Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.


Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Bought my Acer Aspire X3900 approx' 3 months ago, it had windows 7 home premium 64bit. All was fine until I tried running/installing things that worked fine on my old computer that ran XP. After researching the Microsoft site, I bought, download and ugraded to window 7 professional, I downloaded/installed the XP mode. virutal pc stuff and still couldn't run my scanner or ACCU CHECK glucose software. As it turned out, I was going away for 2 weeks so figured I'd worry about the computer when I got home again.
Got home and the pc just kept restarting itself and then crashed. I cannot start it in safe mode, it will not open OS at all. I had made a repair disk as suggested and saved image file to my external hard drive BUT nothing works...Please can anyone help me with this?

I was an idiot and forgot to make a recovery disc, and didnt buy the disc after buying the 40 dollar upgrade. Why are my options? Do I have to buy another windows 8 to get the recovery disc?

Every morning I go to boot, I can turn my computer on but it crashes right after the motherboard splash screen. I don't know if its effective but I repeatedly use the cmos jumpers till it finally boots to bios after I correct the settings and the pc works fine all day. Even with reboots it will work I checked the ram and with another gpu so i fear there is a Bios issue because I previously had to restore the bios from trying to update to the new bios and it failed and found work around to restore it. There was two cases when changing Bios settings before this reported issue that my bios would freeze, was told it was ram, but again ram checks out good still happens with other brand of ram.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

This error can be caused by wear and tear corruption of data on your hard drive.

Check this article for a possible solution: Fixing the dreaded “Unmountable Boot Volume” error | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

I would also suggest you may want to invest in a new hard drive before the old one fails completely so that you've got a fighting chance of saving your personal data should the worst occur.

A:Windows unable to start - Startup Repair and System Restore won't work

Similar problems when trying to restore a system image from a portable HD. I used a bootable USB stick with the Win7 installation files on it and then tried to select a system image from the portable HD. After selecting the image and advancing to the next screen all of the selections would be grayed out and would not let me restore the image. I tried selecting another image from a backup partition on the computers HD and had the same problem. The fix was to repeat the procedure booting from the installation DVD instead of the bootable USB. I am not sure why the DVD worked when the bootable USB failed but it saved me a reinstall. This is an old post but I thought I would share my findings just in case someone has the same problem in the future.

Hey all,
So i'm having this weird problem. None of the stock metro app will work on my system (weather, news etc')
It will just get stuck on splash screen. It worked a few days ago. Started reading about it on the forum and this is what I've done so far:

1. I don't have Avast or any antivirus installed yet.
2. Tried refreshing Windows, I'm getting an error saying Windows couldn't refresh and no changes were made.
3. Uac is on default
4. Windows Firewall service is set to be Running and Automatic
Annoyed and tired I added another language to windows that will change the display UI etc', I added Hebrew, resarted my machine and the metro apps now WORKS but, in Hebrew. Switched back to english, metro apps doesn't work. Tried adding other types of English (Canada etc') still no go.

My stock Metro apps will work only in Hebrew display mode.

Any help would be great.

Greetings all

I have a problem. I had to switch my pc off before shutting down properly earlier today. Each time I attempt to boot, I get the message ' windows did not start properly etc..' and I am given a choice of whether to start in safe mode, last known setting that worked, or normally, etc. When attempting to start normally, I get the windows xp splash screen whith the progress bar for a few seconds, then at the point it would normally switch to the blue password prompt, the screen goes black. No error message, no cursor, no nothing. The system just hangs. It does exactly the same when I try 'last known settings that worked'. On trying in safe mode, the list of drivers it is attempting to load comes up, fills the screen, and then just stays like that. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance....

Love to help but no dmp file included in the upload try this method
If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Hello,

I'm working on a Compaq Deskpro EN500 running Windows XP Professional SP2 (with all patches and updates), current antivirus and antispyware, and firewall.

The system was working fine, user was online browsing the web when the system froze. The mouse froze, etc. Start button could not be accessed. The user shut down the system with the power button. When he turned it back on, he was greeted with the standard Microsoft 'an error has occured' screen' and given the choices of
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good
Start Windows Normally

When I choose any of these, I can get as far as the Windows XP splash screen and then the system seizes.

I can get into the Windows Recovery Console. I have run a CHKDSK /P /R and a FIXBOOT. CHKDSK returns no errors. I'm not sure what to try next short of a rebuild. Ideas?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

If you have access to another computer I'd suggest you create a system repaiir disc.

System Repair Disc - Create

It won't re-install Windows, but it will get you into the advanced recovery environment, from where you can run chkdsk.

It does seem highly likely there is a major problem with your hard drive.

Hi, my name is Stormy, I'm new to this forum since I really haven't had any issues in the past.

I am running Vista Home Premium 32bit on my desktop. I restarted it a few days ago to install SP1, it rebooted and started installing 3 updates. Once it reached 100% it kicked into System Repair. After running through it, it restarted and did the same thing. Now 3 days later, it's still in that process where it installs updates, goes to system repair, restarts and starts again.

I tried interrupting it and doing a System Restore, but even at the earliest date on it, it goes right back to that repetitive process. Now I can't get to any of my files or anything else on there. I'm stuck, and I need some help please!

Can you get into Safe Mode for this computer? On startup you press F8 until you get the boot options screen. Once in Safe Mode find "System Restore" and look for the most recent Restore Point and try that.

Hi,
I've tried the suggestions on what to do if the computer won't boot, such as chkdsk and fixmbr. Did the hardware scan, all is well.

chkdsk said it fixed some stuff... not very specific on what it was.
fixmbr said the boot record was either bad or non-standard, so I went ahead and re-wrote it, but with the same result.

What are my other options for system recovery?

Thanks.

I am certain that it was a VGA driver problem, because it never happened again, till I decided to remove windows internet explorer and it did the black screen thing again. It restarts and instead of showing windows splash screen it shows a black screen. When I am at the black screen I can't do anything, I will have manually restart and when it boots up the second time it will load windows. It's ____ me off. I hope someone can help me here, and I appreciate it. Atm I am gonna reinstall IE 8 and let's hope for the best.

Long story short, I was running a new update for Windows Vista, and during the restart, my iPhone got unplugged. Now it won't startup. I can't start the computer and every time I try to "Start windows normally", it just shuts back down. I try to do "Startup Repair", but it fails to find any problems.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

A:System Repair won't work

From your post it seems that maybe your boot loader got scrambled. Are you running on a RAID array? If not, then your best option is, go buy a new hard drive, UNPLUG the HD within your botched computer holding your data from the motherboards sata and power connector. Hook up the new drive in the other drives place, install vista. Buy an external HDrive enclosure(something like this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817388017 -) and mount your old drive into it. Plug it up and your data should be there in your user folder. I hope that time is not an issue because this is, in my experience with the exact same problem, is your best option. Make sure to copy all of the information to the new drive, reformat the old drive (within the enclosure) and immediately backup everything meaningful onto the old drive, turn it off, put it in the closet. Rinse and repeat about every three days. Hope this helps, and good luck.

A:windows splash to black screen now blue screen

I would think that your first priority, assuming that your data is safe, is to obtain a means of reinstalling/repairing XP. I mean, that would be my first priority if I intended to run a system with XP on it and I did not believe that the system would run perfectly until I decided to retire/sell/junk it.

So my first suggestion would have been...contact Dell and inquire about recovery/restore CDs for your system.

As for your apparent option of taking it to a shop...that won't resolve the fact that you have no install disks of any type.

I've not ever seen an XP sticker that doesn't indicate which flavor of the O/S is installed.

Also, FYI, we've had an issue at work where the system was missing the smss.exe file (this was on XP systems and was caused by the McAfee command line scanner). I would suggest using the command prompt in the Startup Repair menu to replace system files - but unfortunately I can't say which one's are needed.

You may also try running sfc.exe /scannow from the command prompt - it may/may not help.

Hello

My parents just purchased a new PC with Win 8.1. They asked me to remove the splash screen but I have no idea how to do this. If the word splash screen isn't correct then I'll do my best to describe what I'm referring to.
I currently run Win 8 and when I boot my system the first screen I see the Start screen. I click on the desktop icon in the bottom left corner and the desktop window appears and I'm ready to go. Now, in Win 8.1 there is a new screen which appears before the start screen. I don't know exactly what this is but I'd really like to deactivate it. In simple terms I just want to deactivate all of the windows except the desktop. Is there a main option to do this please?

If anybody understands what I'm referring to I'd appreciate hearing from you with help on how to turn that annoying page off.
Thank you.

A:Windows 8.1 splash screen

Is the splash screen you are referring to from the motherboard? If so, in the BIOS you can disable it.

When I start my pc it goes through the bios and to the Windows Splash screen and just sits there. I cold boot the machine and restart it, let it start up normally and it will then start. Is there something getting hung up in the registry?

A:Windows XP Splash Screen

This often means that a hardware driver is conflicting. This is often cured by installing the latest driver.

Start by opening 'Properties' of My Computer. Then 'Hardware', 'Device Manager'. Check for an exclamation mark next to any devices.

You should have already installed SP3.

A:Blank screen after windows 7 splash screen

Hello and welcome to TSF.

Windows 7 has a very robust System Restore. Have you tried invoking System Restore? You can access System Restore from the Advanced Options menu by pressing F8 during startup, selecting Repair Your Computer from that menu, select the keyboard layout, then choose System Restore from the System Recovery Options screen which appears. Choose a restore point before the issue arose.

If you're able to perform a System Restore, post new logs from DDS as this one shall be closed to place you in the queue.

The solutions for malware problems...are seldom generic, since each situation involves a different system, different circumstances, etc.

So...my advice is never to try to use someone else's malware situation...which has been defined and treated by those with expertise...to self-resolve your own situation.

I would suggest that you start in the Am I Infected forum...I'll move this topic there.

A:Black screen after windows xp splash screen

Hi, I have seen this quite a few times, and yes pain in the butt i know :) Alot of software will not install in safe mode, although seeing as you can get into safe mode, will it allow you to uninstall the video driver from there? If you can, then reboot into regular mode, the system should come up (heres hoping).. then reinstall the vid driver. I have found this to work most times. Worst case scenario.. if that dosn't help. . .go back into safe mode again, uninstall all motherboard drivers, reboot back into normal mode, and again, reinstall drivers. The problem you are having is normally a software issue, generally one of the two suggestions here I find to work. If you have activated and the system is asking for reactivation, that could be due to malware or viruses, or significant hardware changes to your system

Hi everyone:

This is my first time here so im not 100% sure if this is where I am supposed to post this.

I am running windows XP Pro and the problem is that I have deep freeze installed on my computer, so I un-thawed it and then installed skype and then froze it again.

Once I was done with Skype I un-thawed deep freeze again and uninstalled Skype and then restarted the computer. Thats when the problem started all I get now is the windows XP splash screen and then the screen goes blank. I tried going into safe mode to un-thaw deep freeze again but it doesn't appear in the bottom bar.

Any help is greatly appresheated.

Thanks,
:) Azirus

A:Black Screen after seeing Windows splash screen.

Hello everyone its me again. Just wanted to give an update on the problem.

It appears that it is deep freeze that is causing this problem on the computer, because when I boot into thawed mode or uninstall deep freeze the computer is able to boot normal (I was able to log in by pressing F8 and then selecting Directory Services Restore Mode, incase someone else has this problem) and once I logged in I was able to open deep freeze and uninstall it.

Unfortunately I need deep freeze installed on this computer because its at a public library (Deep freeze pretty much solves all problems of public downloading viruses etc...) I also have deep freeze installed on 6 other computers running windows XP Pro and they arn't having any problems at all.

If anyone else has had this problem or knows what may be wrong please let me know. I have tried uninstalling deep freeze and reinstalling it as well, but the same problem happens.

Thanks,
:) Azirus

Hi

When rebooting my computer, after the windows splash screen the screen just goes blank. A few days ago I put back an old Nvidia Ti4200 card into the machine (which has previously worked fine on it). It booted up with no problems. However, now it just won't boot (it's probably the second time it's had to boot with this card). The only think I can think of is that I tried installing the latest nvidia drivers which crashed (however it had not yet started copying the files).

Any ideas?

EDIT: Nevermind managed to fix it, the VGA drivers were corrupt

I'd say that faulty install was probably to blame. If you haven't already, try going into Safe Mode and doing a system restore (if you're using XP). Otherwise, I'm not sure at the moment.

Hi, my laptop starts up as the "windows did not shut down properly" screen where I can start windows normal to do repair. When I start windows normally it sends me to the repair screen. And when I select system repair it just freezes at a light blue and geen screen and the only thing showing is my cursor. Ive tried to run the system in safe mode but it freezes at classpnp.sys, and eventually sends me back to the repair screen that is frozen. I don't believe I have my windows 7 installation disk for my laptop so that is out of the equation.

My brother was using my computer and said it was updating when this happened so Im not sure what caused all this.

Thanks.

I recently bought a 19" LCD monitor (widescreen 16:10, since there are very few 4:3 options), at 1440X900. Windows desktop is fine, and most applications have no problem. Windows splash screen is pretty obviously under-resolutioned (horribly pixellated - possibly 800X600), and then stretched for the screen resolution.

Here's where it gets interesting: I installed SP3 recently, and after the installation, SP3 rebooted my PC. While it was rebooting, the splash screen was a perfect, non-pixellated or stretched image (possibly 1440X900. After finishing updates, I logged out. The next day, when I logged in, the splash screen was back to its low, stretched version.

I was hoping to find out how I can make the perfect image, the permanent splash screen (without the use of a 3rd party TSR program, since I know that Windows itself is capable of providing such a thing).

Thanks,
RM

If I understand the issue correctly, you tried the obvious? Display (from the control panel), Settings tab, then moving the screen resolution slider to 1400 X 900, then clicked "Apply", and "OK"...then rebooted, only to have it return to it's default?

I turned on my computer today as usual and I've restarted it numerous amount of times and I can't get past the ASUS bios splash.

I'm thinking the problem is my hard drive, the activity light stops flashing after the bios screen and it just completely goes black and hangs. I've tried system restoring from the windows CD but that didn't work. I don't understand how I can see the hard drive in the bios and I can choose restore points on the drive but it simply won't boot.

What can I do? I don't want to format it and re-install everything again as it takes forever to get everything back. Can I create a new partition to install windows on as I have plenty of space left?

Help?

Hi perry -

What other options are available to you in Safe Mode ?? Are you able to open in Safe Mode Etc. ??
I have only assumed from your post stating you access "last known", that you can access Safe Mode (F8 or similar).

Hi,

On this new pc i have built, the Windows splash screen comes up with just 'starting windows' and then instead of the flag animation it hangs there for at least 20-30 seconds until it starts loading up. (Barely any HDD activity while its hanging). Ive used a MSI mobo that ive never used before, cant say its great quaility but i am really unsure what would cause this.

Windows was installed fine, the HDD was fully wiped pre and all drivers have been installed (Except latest bios i think).

Any suggestions?

Got a virus yesterday and just did a fresh install instead of trying to clean it, but I had to take out both the Video card and Ethernet card because it kept hanging on install at 34 minutes. After that the OS installed fine but when I shut the computer off after the Windows install was complete and tried to put the video card in it freezes on the splash screen and goes back to normal if I use the on-board video. I tried installing the card's drivers, that didn't work since the card wasn't in the computer. Then I tried safemode with the card in the computer, got past the freezing problem but when it gets to the login screen it hangs, mouse still moves but I can't login. I'm at a loss, anyone know what's wrong with it and what I can do to fix it?

I have a Dell Precision 490, that has recently been giving me the Blue Screen of Death, but after restart, it goes through Sector Cleaning and then boots up fine. Today, when I went to start up my computer, it got hung up on the Windows XP Splash Screen with the Dots continuing to animate. I tried unplugging it and restarting and came up with the same issue. I can load it up in Safe Mode, in which I ran the Error Checking program from my C drive and am now running the AVG Antivirus. I'm not sure if AVG works the same way in Safe Mode or not, but I'm running it just to see. I use this computer for AVID Video Editing and have a client coming in today, so I'm hoping to resolve this issue soon if possible. Is this fixable? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and hope to hear from someone soon.

What is "Sector Cleaning"?

Boot to Safe Mode and run chkdsk. Then run a System Restore.

Within the past two days I have had a problem accessing my desktop. Microsoft KB correctly describes my situation: "The desktop does not load and only displays a black or blue background after you log on."

1. I have download the MS hotfix. Works once, then reverts to not giving me access to desktop.
2. If I power off my machine, I reboot into safe mode. I click "normal boot." Things work fine. But again, only once.
3. Today I did a system restore to an earlier date when I did not have this problem. Windows said it could not restore to the earlier date. (In between that date and today I removed some programs.) But when I restarted my machine, Windows gave the earlier date as the system restore point.

Still having the problem of getting to my desktop.

Any suggestions as to a fix?

(Last working configuration, Safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc)Any suggestions?Thanks,Equal.Equal,Please try to find a keyboard to hook up to your computer so you can try to boot into Safe Mode. If you cannot then unfortunately I believe your out of luck. I experienced the same thing a few years ago except with SP2. It corrupted some files and did not install properly. My only option was to reinstall Windows. However if you have a standard XP Disc and not an OEM Restore disc then try booting the disc and choosing the repair utility. That should fix it, providing that it is not a Restore Disc.

A:freeze at windows xp splash screen

I made the same mistake yesterday.
Having used Ghost to clone a version of Windows, you MUST NOT put the old drive back into the machine until you have started from the new drive on its own at least once.

Fortunately for me, I realized what I had done before I started to change things and could redo the Ghost.
I have a feeling you are going to have to do a repair install.

This problem started several days ago. On restart the XP splash screen loads but freezes as the progress bar is in motion. After rebooting several times it does load to the desktop, but on restarting again it hangs.

I have searched reference articles, forums, etc and have found others have the same problem and have narrowed it down to nvidia drivers and hardware conflicts that load after 'mup.sys' in the boot up process.

I had installed a nvidia graphics card and driver before this problem began but then uninstalled, deciding to keep the on board sis igp. I have downloaded driver cleaner and removed all traces of the nvidia driver but the problem persists

I am running XP sp2, p4 3ghz, foxconn motherboard, sis 661fx graphics.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:windows 2000 Splash Screen

I don't think you can change it, but you can disable it. By adding the parameter /noguiboot to the entry in BOOT.INI that launches Windows 2000.

For example:
Change

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows 2000" /fastdetect

to

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows 2000" /fastdetect /noguiboot

Beware: Some Windows 2000 newsgroups have reported disabling the splash screen causes mysterious problems. It also disables the blue screen error messages. That means the system will mysteriously lock up or reboot without giving you any clue as to why should an error occur.

Happy Thanksgiving. Dan-O

Trying to clean up a relatives computer here. I was installing windows updates since it was quite out of date in that regard. Everything went fine until the sp3 update. after rebooting the computer was stuck at the splash screen. Tried booting into safe mode and it stalls there too. So I tried booting with the xp install disc to get to the recovery console and possibly just wipe the drive and start over but it stalls there too. It loads all the files and then stalls at the "setup is starting windows" screen

So I can not boot windows normally, in safe mode, or from the xp disc. This little favor for my niece has just turned into a nightmare. Any ideas?

It will not go past the splash screen on a normal start up, when I try to go to the repair console I get to the blue screen that says " Windows Setup Setup is starting windows " and then it hangs here and lastly when I try to boot to safe mode it hangs at agp440.sys service. From what I can tell that is a video driver that I think is causing all of my problems. Once in a great while it will finally boot to the desktop but my video display is locked at 640 x 480 4bit color. I've removed all unnecessary pci cards and even tried a different video card but the result is still the same. If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful. Thanks....

Ok this problem is starting to frustrate me...I have a IBM Netivista, p3 833Mhz, desktop. I had replaced the cpu from 933 to 833mhz, and had also replaced the hard drive. I was getting a cpu error so I flashed the bios for the cpu and that seemed to work out fine. I also formatted the hard drive to xp. The format looked like it went through fine without any problems, but when it was done copying files, it rebooted itself, then nothing is displayed after that. Just a blank screen. I tried switching out the hard drive, and get the same thing, so I know it's not the hard drive. Not sure what it is. Can anyone please help me out with this? Thanks.
 

A:Help!! Can't view windows splash screen!

When you formatted and installed xp,you changed the boot sequence to cdrom first correct?
Try changing to hard drive first boot.

This problem started several days ago. On restart the XP splash screen loads but freezes as the progress bar is in motion. After rebooting several times it does load to the desktop, but on restarting again it hangs.

I have searched reference articles, forums, etc and have found others have the same problem and have narrowed it down to nvidia drivers and hardware conflicts that load after 'mup.sys' in the boot up process.

I had installed a nvidia graphics card and driver before this problem began but then uninstalled, deciding to keep the on board sis igp. I have downloaded driver cleaner and removed all traces of the nvidia driver but the problem persists

I am running XP sp2, p4 3ghz, foxconn motherboard, sis 661fx graphics.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this?

Does it work in safe mode?

It may be a driver conflict from when you were installing the appropriate drivers.
