Hi guys,
So i received this error this morning after rebooting. Ive read numerous responses posted over the net and a lot of it is rather vague. I cant load Xp Pro not even into safe mode. I havent installed any new software. No hardware changes have been made. I tried boot log so I could read it using my back up OS HDD, but there is no ntbtlog.txt. I used chkdsk and there were no problems found. im thinking it might be ram, but i cant afford the downtime to run memtest.
any ideas would be appreciated.

Here's a link to a brief description of the error message: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x50

If your backup OS works just fine and you still can't boot into XP - then I'd have to suspect a problem with the XP installation rather than the memory.

A couple of questions:
1) Is your backup OS on the same physical hard drive as the XP installation (not just a separate partition)?
2) How far does the XP boot before getting this error?
3) Have you done a backup of your stuff on the XP installation (from the backup OS)?
4) Have you scanned the XP installation driver for malware (from the backup OS)?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
