I changed it in note pad to:

Some said it was caused by the Blaster Virus, others said to remove SP1 (Don't think that is the cause)

If you can't even get into XP, which it sounds like and the card removeal does't help restore to an earlier version when it was booting. Assuming it ever did.

You may want to take a look at:
Generic Host Process Error Message and a Flashlight Icon Appear (821690) from Or simply look for 821690 on their search section. I'm not sure what else could be causing your issue other than what this page mentions as you didn't include much in your question to allow us to explore for other causes of your problem.
