Hi,

My PC developed a problem over the weekend and I'm just wondering if
anybody here has any suggestions.

When attempting to boot into Windows XP Pro (with SP2 applied) the
computer just hangs while showing the loading screen (the one with the
blue bars at the bottom). I've attempted to select the Last Known Good
configuration but that doesn't make any difference.

I've also tried booting into safe mode but find that safe mode fails to
start with a STOP 0x000000F4 error.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get my PC up and running
again?

Thanks,
Chris

I've looked up the STOP error in question and find that there is a link
to the following MSDN article:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/libr...

>From memory, the second value of the STOP error is 0x3 which means that
the problem was caused by a process rather than a thread. Other than
that it's difficult to diagnose the problem any further as I cannot
gain any sort of access to the machine to perform any diagnostics. I'll
try booting from the WinXP Pro CD later today to see if the problem can
be fixed either via the recovery console or by doing a repair install.

simmo2004,
Look here for information on Stop Error Messages;
'WINDOWS STOP MESSAGES' (http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php)
Post back please with what you've found out.
Thanks,

Chris,
Seems like your on the right track to me. As I understand it there are
a number of processes that need to complete for success. Stop one part
of the processes from executing, and it generates your stop error.
Good luck,
Treeman
