This could be a variety of things, but a lot of CPU's will do this if you have a disk in the disk drive or even a thumb drive. Worst case is you have a failed hard drive and you could may need to reinstall windows to get it working. Good luck

    Magellan Maestro GPS #MM3225. Screen display this


    The unit is now connected to your computer, and you can actually access its filesystem through windows. It is also charging the battery in the unit. I wouldn't want to mess around with the files, though, unless you know absolutely what you are doing. Plus, it's also a good idea to turn the unit off before removing it from the computer.

    Windows xp will not load


    Ah, the "Blue Screen Of Death".

    Solution as follows:

    To resolve this problem, start your computer in Safe mode, remove the display adapter, rename the .inf files that are associated with the display adapter drivers, restart your computer in Normal mode, and then update your display adapter drivers. The following steps describe this procedure in more detail:
    1. Start Windows in Safe mode. To do so:
      1. Restart the computer, and then press F8 while the computer starts.
      2. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
      3. Use the ARROW keys to select the operating system to start, and then press ENTER to start Windows XP in Safe mode.
    2. In the message that states that Windows is running in Safe mode, click Yes.
    3. Click Start, click Run, type msinfo32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
    4. Under System Summary, expand Components, and then click Display.
    5. In the right pane, note the information that corresponds to the INF File item, for example, Nv4.inf, Oem0.inf, or Atim128.inf.
    6. Quit the System Information utility.
    7. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    8. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
    9. Expand Display adapters, right-click the display adapter, and then click Uninstall.
    10. Click OK.
    11. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    12. In the Command Prompt window, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line: ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.inf *inf.old
      ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.pnf *pnf.old
    13. Close all open windows, and then restart the computer in the typical manner.
    14. Log on to Windows by using an account that has administrative privileges, and then wait for Windows to detect new hardware.
    15. When the Found New Hardware Wizard starts, click Cancel.

      If you receive a stop error after you remove the updated display drivers, restart the computer and use the Last Known Good Configuration option. To do this, restart the computer, and then press the F8 key while the computer starts. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

      If you receive a "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" message when Windows starts, restart the computer again. This error message does not recur.
    16. Obtain and install the latest drivers for your display adapter.For information about how to contact your computer manufacturer, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
