I tried to use an older Dell dimension 3400 (P4 /1.6G) with XP home as a radio, but I got the error message that I needed to have SP2 installed to update the windows media player to get ESPN radio. I followed the download instructions and everything seemed to go well and then was instructed to reboot and that is when the problems began.

I rebooted as instructed and the computer began to cycle around and around. The screen shows the XP home logo and then goes black for awhile and then quickly a blue screen appears and flashes an error message, I have let it run through many times trying to write it down exactly but what I have been able to catch is something like this:

unable to locate component, application has failed to start because winserv was not found, and then it says something about application may fix this problem but the whole message does not fit on the screen, so this is all I have.

I have tried to boot into safe mode but I can't seem to get it to do that either, I am not the most tech savy guy so any help or suggestions you may to offer is much appreciated.

Thanks, Chris

HitsSquad,

The Article address' exactly the problem I am experiencing but when I hit F8 at start up and bring up the windows advanced options menu I do not see the option for "Disable automatic restart on system failure" as described in the article, am I missing something or could it be listed as something else? I tried all the options and it continues to cycle around and around.

The disable restarting in safe mode will be there only if you have SP2 installed.

Hitting the "Pause/break" button may let you freeze on the bsod so you can read it.

Ok the pause/break does not freeze the screen but I am 99% sure the message is the one described in the article posted by HitSquad.

And if I do not have the "Disable automatic restart on system failure" and then I did not sucesfully load in SP2 any ides what is going on and what I might try to it to boot up in any fashion? Thanks as always for your help

You may want to try a repair install of WindowsXP using these instructions: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

This should allow you to get into Windows.

Also, you might want to look into "slipstreaming" your current WindowsXP disk with SP2.

Thanks John,

Since this computer had very little on the hard drive this sounds like the way to go, I'll let you know how it turns out. BTW your aviator is very similar to a guy I know from a Springsteen board.

In reality he's a great guy and Hugh music fan of all styles..but that's another thread.

I followed the instructions on the article you posted and it's back up and running, I need to get it back online as the network info was lost but no biggie that's one that even this computer illiterate novice can handle.

Much Thanks for helping me out, I just wanted to be able to use it as a radio as the warehouse here at work won't get regular radio in very well and then I screwed the whole thing up and it wasn't worth putting any $$ into. So Thanks again. :trumpet:

Another Bleeping success story.
