my Compaq 2700us has been giving me fits...
i decided to use the quickrestore cd to wipe and reinstall XP (just to 'clean house'). I had no Stop errors prior to this. The QuickRestore CDs copy all the image file to the HDD, then when rebooting i recieve the following stop code as XP boots for the first time:
1) stop: 0x00000096 (0X80eeb110, 0x8054acb, 0x80548a80, 0x80571358)
2) stop: 0x00000096 (0x80f5b530, " , " , " )
i also get an
stop: 0x0000000A (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804f7366)
each of these occur after loading of agp440.sys file, (i assume this is when the XP gui starts)..... since this is a laptop no hardware changes have occured, i'm unsure what caused the OS to fail initially, but since i cannot complete setup of XP, i cannot boot into safe mode and have no way of accessing the dump files. So after low-level formatting the HDD, i've been able to load win98 on it and have no problems... i'm using the laptop to log on and write this.... i've tested the memory with various programs > 12 hrs each time w/ no errors detected in the ram.
any thoughts or advice??? i miss XP
