"STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Windows Logon Process process terminated unexpectedly
with a status of 0x00000080 (0x00000000 0x00000000). The
system has been shut down."


This blue screen appears before kesktop is loaded. Any chance i can get to system restore? I cant access anything from there, and has anyone had this problem before and that the "repair" function from the xp disc solves the problem? Or is reformatting comp my only option?

Did you try tapping F8 after the beep and choosing last known good configuration from the options

Is that because tapping F8 does nothing, if so tap F5 right after the beep

ya i read that somewhere and the comp im using right now is using xp

. From the root folder of the system partition of your hard disk drive (for example, C:\-), copy the following files to the floppy disk:
Boot.ini
NTLDR
Ntdetect.com
You may have to remove the hidden, system, and read-only attributes from the files.

I cant seem to get hold of those files. Where exactly do i get them from?
