    Hi Clincher,

    Even with all that great testing and reporting, I'm still at a loss to pinpoint your problem.

    I think you may actually have two problems and that is making it more complex.

    First, boot to a memory test CD or floppy. That could help eliminate some of the hardware from the equation. (Maybe unhook the HD if necessary)

    If the memory passes muster, Then download and create the manufacturers diagnostic boot media for your particular HD. Hook the drive back up and boot to the test media and run all non-destructive tests. HD Diagnostics Available Here

    After knowing the results of those tests, perhaps a better plan will emerge.

    When you boot to Safe Mode and it hangs at MUP, that is NOT the fault. On a Safe mode the one it hangs at is the last one loaded. It is the one that is NOT then loaded that is the problem

    IN relation to the first error - you presumably knew because of the tests that this is usually a ram error. However as always, it does NOT, you having tested it to some degree, inidcate that it IS the ram.
    It may well be another hardware error, causing the ram issue. Clearly you have eliminated the PSU.
    I would run memtest to be certain. OR Windows Memory Diagnostic
    Here is the MIcrosoft article on that first error.
    STOP>Oxoooooo74, (OxOOOOOOO3, OxOOOOOOO2, Ox8008700, OxC000014C)

    That also usually indicates memory
    But I am checking further on Microsoft Tech. reference.


    Again a memory issue. - frequently the result of hot plugging ram. - Please assure me you did not before I go further.

    I would check your minidimps. If you cannot read them. Attach the last three to your next post.
    I would also check that the ram is properly seated ie; Both clips are ion the ram stick notches.

    I suspect you have a bad memory stick and a corrupt registry. Testing the hardware (memory stick) is the first order of business. Then you can move on to the registry problem although checking the HD first might also be a good idea.

    For a good read on this problem, Click Here.

    As has been mentioned, the MUP.SYS file gets a bum rap since it isn't really at fault. It's what the system is trying to load after the MUP.SYS file that is the real problem.

    I used a test disk, to do checks awhile ago. I will start checks and record.

    Thank you for advice, I have health issues, I can take a while to action & respond.

    No prob lem, just at your convenience.
    Go C drive, if that is the main hard drive, windows, then minidumps, double click the folder, are there any minidump files

    If do attach the last two to start with.
    On your post on advanced you wil see Manage attachments
    Click that then browse to the mini dump, click and then upload
