My computer has been working fine for months, this last week it has been on for a few days as it runs as the server in my house with the adsl coming into it. Last night I turned the comp off to attach my parellel port zip drive, when I turned it back on windows xp boots upto the point of the scrolling bar then the screen flashes up blue and the computer resets.
when it tries to boot again it gives me the option of normal, last known good config or safe mode. Normal and last known good config result in the same blue screen and safe mode hangs when loading mup.sys
The blue screen isn;t up long enough to find out whats happened. The computer POSTs fine and I can still access the hard drive if I use a win 98 floppy boot disk.
Its really starting to get annoying as I have some serious deadlines this week and a lot of important info on the comp. Why does this happen just before I decide to back stuff onto CD and not after....??
My system is a duron 1300
forgotton the motherboard make
onboard sound, vga and network
any help is welcomed
