XP repeated rebooting just after login.

I have an XP box that repeatedly reboots just after logging in. It's ran fine for months, and just started doing this today. I've disabled just about everything listed in the startup section of MSCONFIG (except AV and a couple other necessary things, boots into safe mode ok), tried VGA mode, and finally did a logged boot. Luckily I have an older partially fubar'd installation of XP on the same box that let me get the NTBTLOG.txt file.

Here's the latest boot section:

It stops there. Any idea what would be causing this problem? Any services that I could disable or anything? Not sure where to go from here.

I'm pretty sure it's an XP issue and not hardware since the old XP boots fine (very slow, but that's the partially corrupt install). The Old XP is on c:, and the new, rebooting one is on d:.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

i would think it is a driver issue according to that post, because you are failing to load several drivers.

i would begin with your first one that didn't load.

If you notice it loads the drivers and then later in the boot it drops them this would lead me to believe its a ram issue run a memtest and Im willing to bet you have faulty RAM.

Hmm, I'll have him run memtest86 then. I'll let you know how it goes.

Sometimes it's the simple things. There was a new 'USB Dongle' for an audio program plugged in the front USB port. Once it was removed, it booted right up. If he'd only listened to me in the first place and removed everything but the keyboard, mouse, and monitor, I could have avoided all this. He didn't notice the dongle until he put the floppy for Memtest86 in.

Thanks for the help an suggestions.
