When I try to get into the Safe Mode on my XP(HE), a bunch of white text runs through, and then it stops. All I'm left with is a monitor full of "scsi(0)disk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\..." lines.

The last line that it freezes on is:


Last time I've waited few hours for something to happened, but everything was still the same as I left it when I came back.

Anybody know what the problem is?

Can you boot up the pc normally? If so, you can try going to start run and typing sfc /scannow after it has finished, try starting in safe mode.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898900 if you jamms again at that point, you could try replacing the mup.sys.

Hope this helps

See if anything here sounds like a fix for you:
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher an animal, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Here's a lot of interesting articles on the mup.sys error: http://www.google.com/search?q=Mup.sys&...lient=firefox-a

And some interesting articles on it's properties: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=...amp;btnG=Search

Actually, it seems that this is indicative of mup.sys loading successfully - and it's the next entry that's locking up (one source says it's an ESCD file)

MUP = Multiple UNC Provider

So, I'd look at your network card drivers, your mobo/chipset drivers, and your video drivers (because this is also around the time that the video initializes).

If you've got the option to start in VGA mode, try that also.

Thank you all for the replies. I got into the Safe Mode right after I did the "sfc /scannow". :thumbsup:
