windows 2000 hanging while starting. Mup.sys cause?
Posted on 2003-04-14
My windows was working fine, but all of a sudden IT is hanging while starting, when I started to start in safemode, It is coming upto verification of c:\winnt\system32\drivers\mup.sys and hanging.
What shall I do. I tried to restore the windows using CD but it didnot work. I renamed the mup.sys as mup1.sys and copied the mup.sys from another system using recovery console, Even then the problem is persistent.
Finally I decided enough is enough and went with new installation of windows. to my horror at the startup I am not getting usual (windows 2000 (setup)). Instead three lines of same windows 2000 operating system. and each hang at the same mup.sys.
How shall I resolve the problem.
