    Blue screen of death

    I have Windows XP Pro with SP2 and it's shutting down. Its a new install and I havent run any MS updates yet apart from IE7 and Win Media player 11.

    The following blue screen message apperas: STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000005 {0x00000000 0x00000000}

    Any ideas?

    Can you get it to boot into safe mode?
    If so try checking device manager for any problem devices. BSOD is often caused by old/no drivers.
    I always install SP3 asap, and leave out IE7 (it still causes problems in certain areas).

    I have a CD with SP3, IE7 and MP11 already on it, makes things much easier....

    After your computer POSTs, press F8 and choose "Last good known configuration" and in turn Safe Mode if required.

    If either of these do not work, I would either repair Windows or extract your hard drive, backup data and start again.

    You may find this useful once you've got XP up and running!
