There are a few things to do. Check your hardware manager that there is no yellow exclamation or questionmark, if so, disable it.
Upon bootup hit F8 key. Displays booting options. Either go to "Last known good" or "vga safemode."
Once you are in, highlight with mouse "My Computer", right-mouse click, properties, advanced, performance options, Virtual memory manager, change. You should have about 1.5 times your physical memory free hard disk space. (eg 512meg physical memory, reserve about 750meg of HDD).
If you can get in either, shut-down and reboot.
Another thing is to boot with your 2000 CD and do a manual repair", to check bad files. Have your Emergency Repair disk ready, if dont have, "locate" do a search. Good luck.

Well I all but gave up on this install. I ran win2k manual repair and it found a lot of files to replace. It did replace the ntoskrnl.exe file. When i booted the computer i had 10 new problems. I sorted through all of that and finally got back to where i was...a blue screen with "Page_fault_in_non_paged_area" ntoskrnl.exe whenever i plug in a usb device (usb mass storage device). I have had it!!! Concerned that there may be some physical problem I removed every pci card that i could (less video and audio cards). Put a new drive in it and put a fresh install of win2k pro on it. It works fine, so i know it is software related somehow...but how? I have SP4 installed which is one reason why the manual repair replaced so many files. In addition im confident that that was also the reason why so many problems arose after the manual repair. Any more suggestions anyone. It is personal now!!!

I had the opposite problem, I'd get a blue screen when my
7 in 1 USB card reader was unplugged, everything worked fine when it was connected.

I booted up in safemode with networking and checked all the USB
drivers and rolled back the one that wasn't microsoft ( it was
written by OWC, orangeware corp ) for the pci USB 2.0 4 port card
I installed. Apparently it works fine in 2000 SP3 but not SP4.

My advice is to check all the USB related drivers and make
sure they're provided by Microsoft and roll them back if they're not.
