Windows xp x64 sp2 update driver issue

    Everytime I run the auto update for xp x64 sp2 it dies on the restart. It
    seems to update correctly, then when the system reboots I get to log in and
    the wallpaper comes up only to crash to the blue screen of DEATH! It says
    there's a driver issue. If I reboot in VGA mode the system will run. I have
    the latest drivers from Nvidia for the motherboard and video card. I'm
    sending a message to Nvidia too.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    Hi There,

    Taking driver updates from windows update is really not a good idea unless
    you like problems.

    If your device is working fine it is recommanded not to update the driver,
    if really needed if the device is not functioning well that is you should
    take a driver from the manufacturers website.

    Try rolling back on the driver, boot last known good configuration or use
    system restore to to a date before the problem occured to try and work
    around the occured problem. You can also try if you know which update caused
    the problem to uninstall it.

    Best regards,

    BTW: I am running an AMD 64 4800 with a RAID 0 (hardware raid) on an ABIT MB.
    Anyone else have the same config with simular problems?

    Anyone with a totally different configuration taking drivers from WU can
    have this problem, why?

    Well, I had to go into safe mode and uninstall XP 64 SP2 and everything seems
    to be back in order EXCEPT I still do not have my windows update icon back.
    Somehow the update just jacked up the shorcut to windows update, but if I go
    there manually it still works, but it's showing that SP2 which obviously is
    JUNK.
    I am really surprised MS released such a buggy update. This is by far the
    worse update they have released. I was not able to use the media player or
    even sign into MSN. I had to post these replies via a different machine.
    MS is really slipping these days. DO NOT get me started on Vista and office
    2007.

    Hi there,

    You aree getting a blue screen after updating and rebooting,....

    Write down the error code in the blue screen and report it here, it should
    be something like 0x000000XX and four times the same between brackets.

    The full error number is needed and also the specific driver error to see
    where it is going wrong.

    Where did you take the driver from Nvidia or WU?

    Best regards

    Hey michel.

    I looked for an error code after re-boot but it did not appear to be in hex
    or whatever format they use and it did not offer a solution after I
    submitted. It does not apear to be a hardware issue, since it did not occur
    on boot, but only after trying to do a search on dogpile and also when trying
    to open a WMA via Outlook 2007. It would reboot if the computer sat idel too
    long as well. It's a major glitch for sure. I have heard others say it's
    related to the ABIT N-Force chipset drivers, but that still seems odd to me
    since I could boot just fine and run other apps. That being said, it's still
    very possible that it is a hardware driver issue of some sort, but I am
    reluctant to say it's anything to do with video at this point. Possibly it's
    a sound card issue?? I have the M-Audio Delta 192 with the XP 64 bit
    drivers. I don't know how that relates to logging in to MSN though. I had
    IE7 installed prior to the XP 64 SP2 update, so that also may be an issue. I
    still say that the update was pushed too fast. The people in the test center
    are not getting the stuff right. I use my PC as a recording tool for Sonar
    64 bit software. Most people who run XP 64 use it for Aduio/ Video or
    gaming, and that should have been the test bed for this update. I run the
    Geforce 8800 768MB video card on this computer and the drivers have been very
    stable until this SP2 for XP 64 update. I am sure there will be many people
    looking at this thread in the future. We run www.comfortpc.com here in Grays
    Harbor WA, and we do a lot of work for musicians and film editors. I am
    advising my clients to shy away from this update until MS fixes the problems.

    Sorry I do not have the error code, as I have uninstalled the SP2 update for
    XP 64, but I really don't think it would have been much help as it was a
    generic code and did not apear to be relavent to any sort of hardware driver.
    I have had simular issues with office 2007 so the problem my be there as
    well. Possibly some sort of plug in from office 2007 for IE7. Just like
    vista error codes: I am left without a clue.
    Thanks for your help though!

    Hello Curt,

    you are welcome.

    You could try to check your event viewer to see what is going wrong and post
    here if you find something wrong.

    Known issues are there with Nforce 3+4 Sata controllers and maxtor drives,
    it is not recommanded if you have an Nvidia ethernet controller to use the
    networking tools that come with the nforce drivers, only installing the
    ethernet card driver is okay.

    Best regards,
    Michel Denie

    I will check the event viewer. I never use Maxtor drives, so I can rule that
    out.
    I am only using the driver for the NIC and none of the software.
    The MB I have is a VERY popular MB, and I just can't imagine MS putting out
    an update without testing the N-force chipset first. I am still uncertain as
    to why the SP2 (for XP 64) messed with any drivers or how it would effect the
    current drivers.
    It's very odd indeed. I know for a fact that XP 64 SP2 is the reason for
    the blue screens. After I uninstalled it everything worked except for my WU
    icon.

    Thanks.

    Curt

    Hello Curt,

    goes fine, booting in normal mode giving a a blue screen
    I have edited my boot.ini after updatng to Sp2 and all runs fine.

    Let me know what you found in the event viewer?

    Best Regards,

    I have checked the Nvidia forum too, an dlots of people seem to be having an
    issue with nvidia drivers for x64. I have read they don't have the same
    problems with ATI cards. I guess it could be nvidia's problem but I wish I
    had known about any issues BEFORE I tried to install SP2. Oh yeah, I also
    have an N-force 3 chipset, but I only seem to have problems with the video
    drivers.

    Hi there,

    After updating to Sp2 you can boot in safe mode and edit the boot ini to the
    following lines:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP
    Professional" /noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect /usepmtimer

    save this reboot and see if you can boot in normal mode now?

    Best regards,

    Michel Denie
