Lsass.exe has terminated unexpectedly with a status of 1073741819

I have a laptop that had been part of a domain and was purchased used. After the Windows 2000 splash screen, it presents a window with: Windows is shutting down. the shutdown was initiated by process: C:\winnt\system32\lsass.exe has terminated unexpectedly with status code 1073741819. The system reboots in 60 seconds. The customer has no recovery disc and I cannot get into windows to change the domain settings.

I would just format and start over.

I believe that's what I'll do. I have sent for factory recovery discs from Dell.

You could also just install from a Windows cd.  Most of the drivers will most likely be installed with the installation.  Any additional drivers can be downloaded from Dell's website.

Dell no longer has the installation discs for this computer. They will sell me a new Win2K Pro OS for $200. I think I'll just install WinXP Home (it's cheaper and the drivers for XP are available as this model was also shipped with WinXP) iand be done with it.  Thanks for your input, Cypersean.
