Help, SP2 big problems!

Hey all, Ive been messing around with my computer now for 6-7 hours and cannot figure out my problem. Time to bring out the big guns, you guys!

I built my machine, I have Win XP Pro with Asus P4P800-E Deluxe MB, WD HDD, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card. Here is the deal, my comp had been running fine for over a year. I finally decide to upgrade to Win SP2, as soon as I do, my computer won't boot. I will get past the loading Windows page and then it auto-reboots.

Ok, NBD i think. I have 2 hdd's with all my data on the second hdd so i reformat and re-install windows. The reformat and the re-install go fine. I install Anti-virus then start the Windows Updates. Right after I install SP2, my computer stops working again. Sometimes it reboots after the loading windows screen. Sometimes i can login to my user account, but it will then freeze when I am doing something simple, i.e. looking at device manager, copying files over etc.

So I reformat again and before I do anything else, I install SP2 and the same thing happens! Let me tell you what else I have tried. I have:

Updated BIOS
Updated Video Drivers
Updated Chipset drivers
Ran chkdsk (came back clean)
I did not run sfc /scannow as I figure reformatting 3 times would take care of any missing files
One of the times I had run Windows Repair using the Win CD, but I still had theproblem

Also to note, my computer seems to run fine in safe mode and before I install SP2. Please Please please help! i am not sure what else to try!

thanks in advance for the help.

alright.

I had already upgraded the BIOS to the newest version so I did a complete re-install of Windows, then proceeded to upgrade to SP2. I am still having the same problems... any other ideas?

Do you think I needed to re-upgrade the BIOS after I did a clean re-install? I wouldn't think so but at this point i just don't know!! I am considering just running my computer pre-sp2~

No...you should only have to upgrade the BIOS once.

When you have reinstalled, have you formatted, as well?

Yes, I did the full re-format, not the quick.

It is weird! I thought for sure upgrading the BIOS then reformatting and reinstalling would fix the problem. The link you sent me described my problem acurately and even had my exact MB model.

err this is frustrating!

Click Start, then Run, and type eventvwr.msc...click "Ok"

Click on applications in the right pane and look for any error notifiers in the right pane...list a few of the recent ones here for me is there are any.

Then click on System in the right pane and look for red error notifiers in the right pane...list a few of then, too.

First, let's stop the Windows Messenger.

Click Start, then Run, and type msconfig...press "Ok".

Under the "Startup" tab, look for the entry for msmsgs and uncheck the box next to it...Click "Apply" and then "Ok"...Reboot. Upon startup, you will receive a "Selective Startup" dialog box...this is normal. Check the box in the lower left corner and click "Ok".

Click Start, point to All Programs, and open the Windows Messenger.

On the "Tools" menu in "Windows Messenger" (or MSN Messenger), click "Options". On the "Preferences" tab, clear the "Run this program when Windows starts" check box, clear the "Allow this program to run in the background" check box, and then click "Ok". Close Windows Messenger.

Click Start, point to All Programs, and open the Outlook Express.

On the "Tools" menu , click "Options". On the "General" tab, clear the "Automatically log on to Windows Messenger" check box, and then click "Ok".

Disable the Contacts pane in Outlook Express. To do this, on the "View" menu, click "Layout", clear the "Contacts" check box, and then click "Ok".
______________________________________________

Now we'll disable the SNMP service.

Click Start, then Run, and type services.msc and then click "Ok".

In the "Services" list, right-click "SNMP" and then click "Properties". In the "Startup type" list box, click "Disabled". Click "Ok" to close the SNMP Properties dialog box...Reboot.

Let me know if this helps...

Hey Wannabe1,

Thanks for your help. I have already played around with my computer for 10+ hours now and don't really feel like doing it much more.

I believe I am just going to update to SP1 and leave it at that. My computer has never been on SP2 and I never received any viruses or much mal-ware due to my good computer uses and my protection such as anti-virus, antispyware, firewalls and the like.

Thanks again for your help. Maybe i'll try XP SP3 when it comes out, maybe it will be better.

Doorslam...

If the machine runs good with SP1 and fails with SP2, that would be the way to go for the time being. If I do happen across some information on this problem as it relates to your mainboard, I'll post it here...
