i have a dell inspiron laptop
we just installed xp on it and in the process of passing updates to it it just stoped booting
to be more precise, the problem happens when we passed xp service pack 2 to it
the error we get on boot is

stop: c00021a {fatal system error}
the windows logon process system process  terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000)
the system has shutdown

there is no way to get to safe mode
we tried to reinstall all the older bios in order in case it was a bios problem

any help would be greatly apreciated
thanks

Hello tstuardo =)

not sure what do you mean by "passed xp service pack 2 to it"
do you mean you updated and installed SP2  and then it blue screened after a restart ??
if yes then you can try uninstalling SP2 from Recovery Console as described ehre, check if it can make thesystem bootable again!

well this is not really a way to fix it
i actually found the way to fix it
i had to install the activex upgrade manually BEFORE passing service pack 2
i guess i give myself the points :)
