Hello, my name is Kevin I am new to your forums. I registered because of the sheer fact that most of you are very intelligent and have proven the ability to fix other persons CPU problems.

So without further adue, I have encountered a problem in which I am completely boggled with.

Before I even thought about posting anything, I did my fair share of browsing the net / and these forums to find a solution. Not having luck, other issues are different from mine.

Ok so here is the breakdown:

Error: lsass.exe termination; full description - "lsass.exe termination, application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

When: After booting windows

Whats Happening: Error pops up after windows begins to load, unable to view desktop, just a blank screen. Error pops up once, if I click "OK" it will pop up again, clicking "OK" a second time brings me to a complete stop. No harddrive loading, its basically deadspace sitting at a blank screen.



**Computer was fine last night, no clue what happend, haven't had any errors. Need my files, VERY IMPORTANT - music producer and CANNOT lose project files. If all else fails, I just need a way to get everything off of that HD. Thank you everyone in advance for your help. I will check back later this evening and again tomorrow.

Additional Information:

I have tried booting in SafeMode. No dice.

I suggest you get all your important files backed up before we try to fix the problem. Click on "Backup Files Without Windows" in my sig, and follow the instructions to create a backup of your files. I also suggest storing them on a CD, or external hard drive.

Can you boot into safe mode?

Yeah I can get into Safemode but it does nothing. Just shows Safemode in the 4 Sectors of the Screen and refuses to do anything else. CTRL ALT DLT doesnt even work.

I am going to need to grab an external HD to do this, over 100GB of info to transfer (sigh)

Also post the make and model of your computer. Some things will be a little hard without the Windows CD.

1. If you have Windows CD, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp

2. If you don't have Windows CD...
Download Windows Recovery Console: http://www.thecomput...om/files/rc.iso
Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download
Using Imgburn, burn rc.iso to a CD.
Boot to the CD...let it finish loading.
When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Then, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/...pair_windows_xp, starting below this picture on page 1:

Yo Kevin,
Did this solution worked for you?

Broni,

On this link it says to select "setup windows XP now" and NOT to choose the recovery console??

I have the exact same problem - tried to repair (via pressing "enter", then "r" on cd rather than going through to the command prompt method) and no longer have the errors appearing but just a black screen with moveable mouse pointer after the reboot.

Have posted a fresh post but would love to hear if you managed to solve this (and how!!).
