my friends xp (media center edition) machine ( fully up-to-date and security installed) has suddenly decided to stop working.
After logon gets blue screen of death and restarts , then wants to do a disk check, this process just continues in a loop
safe mode will not boot, tried last known good configuration, same happenns
then we worked out how to Disable automatic restart on system failure
so here is the info from the blue screen of death
the problem seems to be caused by the following file :LVPrcMon.sys
The driver unloaded without canceling pending operations
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow theses steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you may need.
If problem continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x000000D4 (0xF679B410, 0x00000002 , 0x00000000 , 0x80537402)
