BOOT problems

By ameliapumo ·
I AM HAVING PROBLEMS BOOTING AN XP HOME PC OTHER THAN IN SAFE MODE

(SEE PREVIOUS QUESTION XP SETUP)

NOW I AM HAVING THE FOLLOWING PROBLEM STILL

||||||I managed to re-install windows Xp
Still smae problem - only safe mode

When it does the disk checking (blue screen it says disk needs to be checked for cosistency - it keeps listing various LOG files saying that the entry is invalid

If I cancel disk checking it starts to boot into Windows XP (normal boot) It gets past the black screen with Windows XP logo on it, then goes to the blue screen that says XP is starting up, then it goes to the BSOD blue screen colour, and says that Windows has been closed down as there is a problem with iesrpt.sys file and read only memory was trying to be accessed.

What can I do apart from getting a new hard drive?||

why are you cancelling the disk check? let it run and correct and media descriptor errors and invalid entries. So it takes a while, big deal, letting it run might clear up your problem.

If not, then I suggest you get your self a W9X boot disk and at the a prompt type format c: and reformat your drive then reinstall XP.

As I said there are carious file listed as being invalid if I don't cancel the disk checking - it lists them and says what is wrong with them - I follow all instructions given and it still will not boot

I tried cancelling just to see what happened then

Also since posting original question I found a spare hard drive with a clean installation of XP professional on it

This hard drive boots up on my own machine, but when I put it on the PC in question, I get the same BSOD with error code 0x000007B

have you added or changed RAM?
can you try removing some ram to see if it will stablize. do you know what i mean by divide and conquer? take out half ram see if problem goes away put in other half see if you can isolate bad ram.
tina's rule of thumb: if you are having really weird errors you can't seem to explain, especially intermittant, look for bad hardware.

Ok with NEW information via your comments I'm with Shultz there on bad hardware [ RAM ] or hardware XP doesn't like. If you have a copy of XP that doesn't have SP1 or 1a included on the CD you might well have a hardware compatibility problem. Was a real pain to get a computer running when XP first came out as XP was very picky about what hardware it would run on.

nothing listed on Microsoft's help & support for iesrpt.sys error during startup or error code 0x000007B. IESrpt.sys where the .sys is a driver file extension appears to be a driver problem preventing XP from booting up in all but safe mode. So, if your not loading up 3rd party drivers during the installation process [are you?] then I would venture to say XP is trying to install a driver for some hardware that it thinks the driver will work but in reality won't work. So as Shultz says, divide and conquer. Process of elimination. Start taking stuff out and see where it will boot up.

I've tried "divide and conquorer" and removed all cards etc, changed memory, tried 3 different hard drives(all of which work in other pc's. The hard drives with xp on do as already described, but the w98 states that windows is trying to install a programme Interupt Controller

Even if I was to get a new hard drive, I don't think this is the answer.

As the motherboard has now got no cards in it and still won't work, I cannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn't see what elsoe to do

Even if for information purposes only, I am still curious as to what the problem is

Any help greatly appreciated
