That is great to hear. :D
It took a little but it seems that you have finally gotten your system back to normal. ;)
I will continue to monitor this topic in case there is something that creeps up but it looks like you have resolved your issue. ;) ;)


Thanks again!

I just had my first bsod since the repair. Data is as follows:



A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: pci.sys

DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x000000d0 (0x00000044, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x80548169)

*** pci.sys - Address 0xf751917c base at 0xf7511000 DateStamp 0x480252bb



A quick google search revealed that people are having problems with pci.sys upon XP installs. I should also note that I installed Paragon Backup and Cobian Backup on my computer last night. I don't know if it's related, but the bootups and have slower since installing those.

Is there a way to update that driver for pci.sys?

That would be updated through Microsoft Windows Update if there are any. What SP version are you running?
I suggest uninstalling the two programs as that seems to be the cause of the issue.

The recovery disk from dell says SP 3.

Can you recommend any other free backup programs? I like the idea of having an image copy as well as file-based copying.

Acronis is the one a lot here recommend. Though not free it does have a free trial period.
