lsass.exe error shuts down XP Home in 60 seconds!
Posted on 2004-04-18
"C:\windows\system32\lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. Your computer will now shut down in __ seconds..."
This is the error I'm dealing with on a friend's 1 year old white box pc. XP Home is the original installation. Is there a way I can replace that file, a hardware issue, an easier fix than a reinstall, or is a reinstall my only answer? Some people may like reinstalls, but I absolutely refuse to do that unless there is no other possible recourse. Too much is lost and too much time is needed to get the system back 'the way it was'.
I hope to perform a QuickTech memory test today, but the pc recognizes it fully - which I know does not always mean anything...hence the test.
