    Default Blue Screen of Death when booting XP. Cannot boot into Safe Mode, etc.

    Receive the Blue Screen of Death when booting XP and get the message

    *** STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0XBF803EB6, 0XF75367C4, 0X00000000)

    *** win32k.sys - Address BF803EB6 base at BF800000, Datestamp 47e0e106
    Beginning dump of physical memory
    Physical memory dump complete

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Curtis

    Default

    Either your win32.sys file or your registry is corrupted and preventing Windows from starting. As you are unable to boot into Safe Mode, your options are limited.

    Go here and follow the tutorial as shown in Options 2 and 3. That will restore your registry to how it was at your machine's last System Restore point.

    If the problem persists, try doing a Repair Install which will preserve your files and data. Instructions here.

    There is a remote possibility that the fault lies with your RAM or the Hard Drive itself, but try the above before going down that road.

    Good luck.
