Please help,

I have installed PCDUO on Windows NT 4 Workstation & now my PC will not boot up.

It gets right upto the point where it is about to show the "Press control alt delete to logon" & then goes into the blue screen dump.

Is there anyway of stopping the PCDUO Service startup automatically?

I can boot the HDD as a slave on another PC & can see the system files etc.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Regards

Steve

Thanks for the advice,

I tried another stick of memory but still no joy.

Im thinking it must be trying to start the PCDUO service but failing and causing the Blue Screen (Stop 1E) win32k.sys

If I could somehow get into the services program and stop it starting up automatically I think it will start working again.

regards,

Steve....

You can try using the xp cdrom to repair. Rebot with it and select repair .Then when you get to the repair console and at the c prompt type listsvc to get a list of the services. From here you should be ale to shut it down i think.

You should also be able to boot to safe mode and the service shouldn't start. Once in, you can set that service to manual so that it doesn't start until you manually start it. Or, you could delete the offending program and remove that service. I would try setting it to manual as a test first as it may not be the problem.

To get to safe mode, press F8 (I think, been a long time since NT4) during the DOS boot cycle.

Hope this helps!

First of all...


In NT 4.0, it's not "Safe Mode", it's "VGA Mode"

Did you make your ERD when you installed NT? you might be able to correct the problem with a rescue disk.

If you can get into "VGA mode", uninstall the last thing you installed and reboot the PC normally and see if you can get into the system.
