I'll keep this short. A few days ago i attempted to upgrade my system. I was replacing my Celeron 340 2.93Ghz and MSI PM8M-V Socket 478 Motherboard with a Pentium D 820 2.80Ghz and BIOSTAR P4M800-M7 Motherboard, basically just keeping the same memory, a 512mb stick, same harddrive 120gb and same AGP card, eVGA GeForce FX5500. I got this all transitioned around just to find out BIOSTAR board i was planning to use was DOA. So beings im to impatient to wait for the replacement to come i just put my old system back together. All goes well until i launch windows to find this error on boot "lsass.exe - System error" then my comp shuts off automatically. I reboot a few times and run into the same problem everytime. So i attempt to reinstall windows thinking its mabye a virus. Now XP wont let me reinstall, pc just shuts down when the install gets to the part where it says "Setup is Starting Windows" also made it as far as "Loading keyboard layout file KBUS.DLL". So far to solve this problem I have stripped the comp down with no agp card, changed install cds and replaced the harddrive with a previous harddrive i had windows installed on for this machine, I get the same errors, system reboots when i attempt to load, and xp wont let me install. I also replaced my memory from another machine thinking that was infected since ive gotten the same message with two different drives that were used at different times. That didn't work, same reboot problems occured. I have also upgraded the bios and reset the cmos. Ive pretty much done all I can think of. If you have any insight on this, please share cause im out of options for sure.
