Oh no.... I got to the other computer, which had rebooted after the pack 3 install, & found a blue screen

It said to check for adequate space and if a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver

or check with manufacturer for updates Try changing video adapters. Check your hardware vendor for

BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options like caching, shadowing...

*** STOP: 0x00000007E (0xFC5293E4, 0xFC5293E4, 0xFC93952c, 0xFC939228)

*** isapnp.sys-Adress FC5293E4 base at FC522000, Date Stamp 480252b8

It said if this was the first time I had seen the screen (it was) to try rebooting & if it came up again (it did)

to do the above...

Okay, I guess this is the point you tell me not to panic (I hope)...

Well you actually shouldn't have installed SP3 on a dirty computer, but you did it without asking me.

Reboot the computer and see what happens .

also see if it created a restore point before SP3 was installed.

There must have been a restore point established for today because the "Update" balloon

didn't appear until after the reboot after doing that.

I had no idea an update would lead to something like this.

  • Following the directions at the indicated link, it says to start the computer from the CD-Rom.
  • It does not say how.
  • When I put the disk in the drive and reboot, it goes to the screen with the safe mode/normally options
  • There's nothing about starting from a disk.
  • Back to the blue screen.

Reading articles at the MS website has me thinking that I may need to use floppy boot disks to

enable the system to see the XP CD... I've downloaded a file that fits the necessary files onto

6 floppies.... At least that's how I interpret what I'm reading...

There must be a final chapter, somewhere, in this nightmare. A happy ending, no?

Here are the pages I've looked at- I could be reading it wrong. I don't know...






Please let me know if I'm headed in the wrong direction...

I managed to get into set-up & found a boot sequence list, neither of which looked like the ones on

the page you pointed out. When I tried to change the sequence, I could move Hard Drive & Floppy

up & down in the number 1 & 2 spots but could not get the CD option out of the 3 spot. The Help

clues said to use <-> and <+> to move them up & down but hitting Shift to get the + closes the option.

Very frustrating.

I'm going to have to go over all of this again to see what I'm not doing correctly.

Let me know, MrC

If that doesn't work...... Try this form Microsoft:

To work around this issue, run the recovery console by using the Windows XP CD. Then, select the recovery option. To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disk or from the Windows XP CD, follow these steps:

Insert the Windows XP startup disk in the floppy disk drive. Or, insert the Windows XP CD in the CD drive. Then, restart the computer.

Note If you are prompted, click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive.

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

If you have a dual-boot computer or a multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.

When you are prompted, type the administrator password.

Note Press ENTER if the administrator password is blank.

At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

disable intelppm

To exit the Recovery Console and to restart the computer, type exit at the Recovery Console command prompt, and then press ENTER.
