I'm having troubles with one laptop ACER Aspire 3500 with XP HOme.

Don't know what happened, but the computer can't boot correctly.
A blue-screen stop appears:

" session5_initialization_failed"

and start booting again, with no end.

Any suggestions, please ???

Thanks in advance.

There should be a number on the stop page as well - something similar to Stop Code 0x00000071 or similar.

Please post that and whatever other message there may be.

This is a rather generic error message which primarily deals with hardware compatibility. Have you added any new hardware or drivers recently? If so, remove it and test to see if this fixes the problem

Make sure that you hardware specification are met - both for the Operating System and for the other hardware/programs that you use.

Check your Event Viewer for more details on the error. Here's an article on how to do this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Finally, search your hard drive for .dmp or .mdmp files. If you find them, use this link to do an analysis of it and post it here for us to have a look at. Here's the link: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246

If you don't find the .dmp files, you can set your system to make them by going to Start...Control Panel...System...Advanced tab...Startup and Recovery Settings button. Then, uncheck the "Automatically restart" button. Also, ensure that "Write an event to the system log is checked" THe next time it Blue Screen's on you a .dmp file will be generated and you can post the analysis.
