On Start Up Windows XP Reboots.

by DickyDum / July 21, 2006 2:55 AM PDT

I run Windows XP SP2 Fully up to date. AMD 1900. No viruses Registry fully cleaned.
When I start up, after the welcome screen the system shuts down and reboots. Sometimes it will go through to loading up desktop then reboot. It is not consistent as it will either start with no problem or reboot up to 6 times before it completely loads up.
I get the message from Microsoft there is a DEVICE DRIVER problem. Then I get this error message:-
STOP:0x0000007E (0xB32F3145,0xF742AAEC,0xF742A73E8)
Base at B32ED000,Datestamp 4341a407
I contacted Symantec who inform me that their program
installs a Kernal driver a and this may happen when there is a limited amount of kernal space.This could also be a IRPStackSize registry value problem, and how to change this. This was done and rebooted manually 7 times, no problems! The next day when I started machine-it started its rebooting again. All these numbers are gobbly-**** to me. If anyone can work out what the problem is and offer A solution in plain simple info, I would be grateful.

Please repost in the Windows XP forum...

This forum is designated for suggestions and complaints regarding the forums themselves...your question would be best asked in the Windows XP forum. Just as a preliminary, though, make sure you uninstall and reinstall Norton...that will likely be the first suggestion made in case it's a corrupted file.

Good luck.
