c:\windows\windowsupdate.log
but given that information, it is probably not relevent

When you installed XP, did you install any drivers before going to sp2?

can you start in safe mode with sp2?

I did not install any additional drivers other than what windows itself installed.

Yes I can start in safe mode with SP2. That's how I can get in to uninstall SP2 to get the computer back to running. I can not start it in safe mode with networking if that makes any difference.

so....you were not uninstalling sp2 the way I advised? That little tidbit was kind of important.

In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.

The problem here is almost certainly a driver, and I suspect a video or network driver.

The BSOD error was as follows:

RQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

0x00000000A (0x4B733C8C, 0x0000002, 0x00000001, 0x805129E7)
