dualboot with mup.sys hangs on win xp


this is a windows question, but i cant find any good windows forums.

all of this is in winxp home, (not linux)

i occassionally have my comp crash and shutdown. when i boot up in safe mode it stops on mup.sys. this is not the problem, as i have read it is the next driver it is trying to load which is causeing the problem.

solutions i have read are
-disable mup.sys -tried
-take out all pci cards -tried
-reset escd in bios -tried
-revert to default of optimized settings in bios -tried
-change voltqge settings in bios -NOT tried
-repair resintall windows -NOT tried
-reformat -NEVER WILL TRY

here are some threads i have read

http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/1074359667
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Oper..._20584708.html
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Oper..._21038044.html

i want to troubleshoot the real problem.
no one in the windows forums knows what is causeing this problem for sure. they all have different ideas. i come to the linux people becuase in my experience, it yields better resusts


any ideas

my computer was locking up while editing video with magix video editor. but i have run this for a while so i dont blame magix. when it did boot back up after a crash, windows error said it was cause by sentinel.sys so i uninstalled it through add/remove programs (i didnt see any program that needed it).

my question is what is teh procedure for trouble shooting driver in windows xp, given that my ntbtlog is empty, so i dont know which driver to disable?

This is tricky one

iif you have a firewire car may bi this driver ..

In your case I am just guesing whats the problem.

I thin that the real problem is that when your box crashed some or just one file become
corupt, you cant se whitch wan is corupt because you cant boot your system!


but like i sed befor try to boot in recoverj console an do a dskchk !!!!

if you dont know haow
1. insert you wincp xd
2. boot from cd
3. when askedgo to aporpriate mode " recovery console "
this because win98 don't understend winnt logic

give a shot it may help
