Unexpected kernel mode trap
Posted on 2004-10-14
This is a WIN 2000 system with 512 MB memory, 800 mhz processor connected to a cable/DSL network. A Windows popup indicated that there were Window Updates ready to install. Upon clcking on the popup to install the updates, the system restarted and now shows this error message...."STOP. Unexpected Kernel mode Trap". It then attempts to reboot until this message appears again, and again etc. I was able to get the system to come up in Safe mode but do not know what to do from here. I looked at the Updates list in the Add/Remove program list with the thought that perhaps I could remove the last update but I do not know which update to uninstall or which one is the LAST one. Is there a sequence to the updates listed? Is the most recent update the last one listed? If I delete this update, will that likely fix this problem? Are there other suggestions to get around this issue? Thanks for your help on this.
