I posed a question some time ago and have just been able to revisist the offending machine. A kind sole offered to take a look if I was able to post the 'blue screen' error message. XP crashes and reboots after selecting any one of the stored profiles, with the following.... stop: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xf97a1be9, 0xf9c91690, 0x00000000) emu10k1f.sys - Address f97a1be9 base at f96eb000, datastamp 3b78d09d Beginning dump o physical memory. I can get into Safe Mode but Event Viewer gives me little to go on either. If anyone can decipher the above I would be eternally grateful. Thanks in advance.
