0X000000000)

I cant find any info relating to this stop error code. any suggestions/help
will be great . please please please. i dont want to reinstall the system

    This is not my area of expertise, but I am wondering if you sent/copied an
    image file to this PC?

    For example, I seem to recall that you can send an image from a laptop to a
    desktop, but not from the same desktop to the same laptop.

    You may want to peruse this web page if it is applicable.
    http://cquirke.mvps.org/sp2intel.htm#Prescott

    Also, MUP.SYS is described at
    http://www.windowsitpro.com/Windows/Articles/ArticleID/4907/pg/2/2.html
    scroll down to the paragraph named Resource Name Resolution

    I seem to recall it may also be a registry setting (do not recall which one)
    or perhaps a problem with a USB port/driver.

    This web page explains how to recover from a corrupted registry.
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q307545

    Finally, have you viewed the thread at
    http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.general/browse_frm/thread/126bcc9500dd229c/ffb4a1a91cb2e217?q=mup.sys+boot+registry&rnum=8&hl=en#ffb4a1a91cb2e217
    There are some good comments about MUP.SYS that would mean more to you since
    you obviously have the inside knowledge.

    Good luck as you may have your hands full with this one.

    You did not actually say whether you could boot into <Safe Mode>. If you
    can't, then you almost certainly have a hardware issue. Try booting from the
    XP disk. You have to set your BIOS to boot from CDRom. If you cannot boot
    from the system disk, at this stage, I'd suspect a faulty processor, and I'd
    have it checked out.

    i am unable to boot up the system at all. i have gone through the reinstall
    proceedure and selected repair twice, i am still unable to boot up in any
    mode.
