If you can't boot into Safe mode (F8 key after bios screen) as it still
hangs on one of the driver installations, do a restore to last known good
...... and that also fails you need to continue with this message.

If you have a bootable Windows XP CD you can uninstall the SP3 setup by
using the first knowledge base article listed below. I had to use method 4
via the recovery console to remove a failed, non-bootable SP 3 install
recently. Once you run the uninstall from the recovery console and if the
computer boots then, you may still need to uninstall SP 3 from the Control
panel, Add/Remove Programs selection.

Now, if you do not have a XP CD but you have a recovery partition that will
reinstall factory default settings, you need to obtain (beg, borrow or
steal) a bootable XP CD of the version you have installed (Home or Pro). As
my system came with a recovery partition, I could not access the recovery
console to do the uninstall. I did have, however, an Enterprise version XP
Pro Gold (no SP on CD) that I borrowed from work that allowed me to get into
the recovery console by booting with that CD and then uninstall the SP3
install. I was able to then boot to my hard drive's XP install and finish
the uninstall from the Control Panel. Still haven't found out what crashed
the install of SP 3 on my Averatec laptop but I suspect it is the video
driver that has no new update available (also gave me a stop error of 135
but was referencing a .dll file on my system.)

Hope this helps, let us know.

You need to post a complete copy of the Stop Error Report.

Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by
allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Right click on
the My Computer icon on the Desktop and select Properties, Advanced,
Start-Up and Recovery, System Failure and uncheck box before
Automatically Restart.

Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have
resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.

An alternative is to keep pressing the F8 key during Start-Up and select
option - Disable automatic restart on system failure.

If you are using a wireless keyboard and the F8 key does not work
substitute a wired keyboard and mouse for this exercise only.

You need to have a better idea of the likely nature of the problem
before you use your Windows XP CD.

Hello, I was wondering if any one ever figured out what was causing this
problem and if there was a fix so SP3 could be installed? Thank You. Al
