I am having trouble getting my work machine to start. When I turned it on this morning it appeared that windows was starting. However, when normally the screen would change from the "windows is starting" screen to display my desktop the screen flashes blue for a half of a second and then reboots. This continues until I turn off the power. On the blue screen I have figured out some of the two lines of text that are displayed - it happens so quickly that I may not have it correct and I certainly do not have it all:

stop 0x0000
mode_exception_not_handled

I have called our IT department, but that could take days. Is there anything I can do in the mean time? Or should I wait for a hard drive wipe and reinstall windows?

Thanks in advance!

sounds more like a hardware problem,maybe cpu or memory.
You could try removing and reseating them.

Talked to IT department again. They seem to think it has to do with critical updates for windows which they pushed out to all stations when PCs boot in the mornings. I didn't shut down mine all week so I missed one update. Then again this morning they pushed another...

IT says they both tried to install at the same time causing a conflict - someone is on the way to repair. I will post again when I am up and running to let you know what the final outcome was.

Another IT technician called (one that I know well). He told me the PC is toast and I am going to get what I wanted all along - XP :thumbsup: . Problem now is he thinks I am malicious :flowers: . Think what he may... XP is coming!
