Hi --

Yesterday my laptop (Dell 700m XP Pro SP3, fully up to date) would not start. Safe mode didn't work either -- it hasn't for a long time, not that that was ever a problem until yesterday -- giving a bsod immediatly after loading sptd.sys, which I believe is a known problem with it.

I fixed my inital problem in the end by using the recovery console to restore a copy of the registry from a restore point from the previous day.

I'm now turning my attention to getting safe mode working. I first uninstalled the Daemon Tools virtual drive, and renamed sptd.sys. Testing safe mode again gave me a STOP 7B in BtHisMgr.sys, so BlueSoleil was uninstalled and, that proving insufficient, the offending driver was renamed. Next up was BtHidBus.sys, then giveio.sys, now MUP.sys.

I'm being to feel I'm going to end up uninstalling *everything* in order to get into safe mode, and there's probably an underlying reason that none of these are working.

Can anyone suggest where I should start with this?

Happy Christmas to all.
