    Does it crash when you are starting-up Windows?

    Does Windows start correctly and completely?

    Does Windows crash only when you are using it?

    What commands/programs cause the crash?

To make it short, you can try un-installing SP3, but the reason you computer is crashing is due to a program that is having incompatibility issues. That doesn't meant that your programs can run on SP3, it mean your programs and maybe even your drivers were install when you had SP2 and they didn't like the service pack update. You can definitely try to find which programs or driver are causing the problems but I recommend. Do a full format(non quick) and then a fresh install of windows and then update windows, and also try to download the latest drivers from the manufactures website and then install your programs.

**So yes I recommend an operating system re-install.

PC crashes when i switch user


reboot to safe mode using f8 right before the windows logo screen at boot comes on. after on this, run a virus and spyware removal program. i recommend www.superantispyware.com for this.

this problem is mostlikely due to a virus or spyware. If all else fails, put your windows xp cd in and when this loads, select install windows then let it detect installed windows. select "repair" as your option for a repair reinstall, this will fix damaged or mising windows files.

Installation problems SamSung ML 2510 printer with Windows XP


Why no updates? No windows validation? That could be your problem if that's the case.
If not, I suggest going to Windows update and at least installing all critical updates, if not SP3 as well, and try again

It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

XP-Pro Crash


I don't know why but some systems which have XP (SP1 or SP2) simply can't take the upgrade to SP3. Your system appears to be one of them. For instance our family's computer had XP SP2 and upon upgrading to SP3 we received a fatal crash while XP was loading into normal operating mode.

I managed to resolve the issue by booting to safe mode and restoring the system to a date before I installed SP3. Sorry that the new SP doesn't work for you.

XP Home Edition crashes while in standby - blue screen error


Sounds like a bad file . I would consider reinstalling windows. When it starts up, for a new install, it will find your existing OS and ask it you want it repaired, say yes then it wil repair it and leave al you data as is.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.
