Currently I am running XP Professional with the SP2. I haven't been able to get my desk top to turn on for the past couple of days. Normally it either gets to the screen with the XP logo and the loading bar underneath it, the one with the blue squares and it stays there, or it says on a black screen "Error Loading OS" , or it just stays on a black screen. today when i tried to turn it on it made it all the way to the blue welcome screen before it dropped the BSOD on me. the error code was this:

STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x89F7E188, 0x89F7E2FC, 0x8060567E)

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi :thumbsup:.

One of the many processes or threads crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. As a result, the system can no longer function. Specific causes are many, and often best resolved by a careful history of the problem and the circumstances of the error message.

More at http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm, F4 on the right.

OTOH, the Error Loading O/S message...points to a hardware problem or a CMOS problem.

First step: Enter the BIOS/Setup...and see if the hard drive is properly detected.

Second step: Download the respective diagnostic for your hard drive...and run the long/extended test.
