You should have SP3 anyway.

You can download SP3, it's free.

I'm running out of ideas. You have the disk, but can't do a repair installation and there isn't any problem with your hdd. This doesn't make sense.

Am I on Candid Camera??? :thumbsup:

I have already have sp3, but its an exe file and not bootable.., i talked about buying windows xp sp3 CD

i have just ran the diagnose again, this time its the full test ( at the first time it was quick test, but after a while i wondered if i had an old version, and when i check i saw that i missed the real test .. LOL)

Here is the result if you can't believe

IME...using a CD with a prior version of XP SP...to do a repair install...results in a possibly scrambled O/S.

What I would have done is slipstream SP3 into a new CD and then use that CD to attempt the repair.

I would also remember that a repair install is just an attempt at a solution, not guaranteed to overcome whatever is wrong.

Although there are various instances of these Session3 errors found (using Google), I see no clear determination of what they could result from and how to overcome them.

The hard drive would have been my primary suspect, but you've already run the diagnostic on it.

I followed this guide: http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/S...ice_Pack_3.html and burned a sp3 winXP cd.

I did the repair install, with an upgrade installation that came up after the restart,

I still got BSOD after the winXP loading screen,

how can i assure that it did upgrade to sp3? I didn't see any new process, everything were just like the other repair attempts..


Thank you!

To see what SP is installed...Start/Run...type winver and hit Enter.

Read the Windows version data, it reflects the latest SP installed.
