Thanks in advance...there's an error message in my  Event Viewer/System:

The bsaspi32 service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

    Do you have user accounts and logins set up on that computer? From what I found out, that sounds like a password/account error. I found some more detailed info on the 7000 error on Microsoft's website here (;en-us;314357&Product=winxp ) . Might be a good place to start. If that's not valid, let us know, and we'll have another look. Good luck :)

    If you aren't having any problems with your system, it might be a leftover part of a program or driver that was removed. Right-click My Computer and select Manage. Select Device Manager, then hit View|Show Hidden Devices. Look through "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" and see if bsaspi32 is listed there. If it is, right-click it and either hit disable, or uninstall.

    Thanks all,

    Kenneniah, I did see a leftover bsaspi32 and deleted...the error did not go away, though.
    rhequiem & senad, it was a 'user accounts/logins' problem and it's fixed. Thank again for the prompt responses.
