Today, I'm having a major XP issue. I don't think it's a virus, but a hardware compatibility issue, but what do I know?
Here's the deal: Today, I was innocently typing an email using IE and Yahoo Mail. Suddenly, I got a blue screen with an error message about "inpage-kernel" and physical memory dump. I restarted the computer, and it began checking things, and was furiously dumping "orphan files", then suddenly stopped! It was left with a brief message on a blue screen... about stopping at a numbered component, and cannot load "winsvr". Then it says.. "reinstalling this program may fix the problem".
Well.. I have my original disks to reload anything I need to reload. However, I cannot even get into Safe Mode because that blue screen returns and there is no way to get around it. The computer looks as though it's going to boot up, because the XP screen comes on.. then it just stops.
Any thoughts on getting past that blue screen long enough to reset the computer or reload XP?
