Last Modified: 2008-01-09
A Laptop with windows XP installed suddenly stopped responding today.  You can only log onto the laptop as a local administrator, and you cannot start services such as NET LOGON (you get an error 1068 when you try).

I have a feeling its a driver or corrupt service executable causing the problem, anyone have any ideas how to resolve this?

Also when checking the event viewer i see errors such as RDM driver failed to load
