I am running windows xp pro and yesterday I booted the laptop and it booted up fine and ran for about three minutes then I got a blue screen saying a problem was detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage etc etc.
The computer wont stay on long enough to try system restore, and when I try to set safe boot I get a black screen listing system 32 and drivers. When I go to run and do msconfig and try to put a checkmark in safeboot it wont let me and the egg-timer just turns until the laptop shuts down
When the computer boots it displays a a invalid boot ini file, booting from C;windows on top left of screen , then it boots and shuts down as explained above

The technical information on the screen is as follows

stop: 0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0x80637F4D,0xA8A4599C, 0x00000000)
Can anyone help me with this problem

I finally got the laptop to boot in safe boot and it stays on. Anyone out there know how I can fix this in safe mode.

Can you post a few of your latest minidump files? They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

Right-click the minidump file, select Send To, then select Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Windows will compress (zip) the file and save the new zipped file in the same location.


If the Minidump folder is empty, you'll need to configure Windows to create minidump files:
