but as soon as i update to sp2, my computer goes into this endless cycle of rebooting during the windows loading stage.
i posted this earlier and was given a weblink by "keith" which instructed me to re-install kernel32.dll and the steps on how to do so which i followed. unfortunately it didnt solve the problem.
prior to the sp2 install i had turned off system restore, so i cant roll back thru safe mode (to prior sp1) stages.
i have reformated numerous times, and made sure that all hardware and drivers was correctly installed but ive had no luck. i get all the prior microsoft updates fine. but as soon as i update to sp2 the problem begins.
i also notice that my computer will not allow me to access "safe mode with networking" when i attempt to access it, it automatically reboots.
if you have encountered this problem or know how to fix it please help. this is the third week my rig remains idle and unused
lost and frustrated,
