What does it mean when I attempt to get into safe mode but it just stays
stuck at the screen where it lists all the drivers being loaded as well as
the hard drive led on the computer staying solid.

Hi

What's the name of the file that is last on the list? Could be a corrupted
driver.

How long are you waiting? It takes some time after the last driver loads. If
you have waited longer then 5 minutes, you may want to consiter a repair
install

I think it is mup.sys.

I did do a sfc /scannow from the command prompt and it still just sat there.

Hi

That's the one file I was hoping you wouldn't say it was :-) Can you access
Windows normally and try

sfc /scannow

from Start>Run?

Yes I can access Windows normally. I did do a sfc /scannow from command
prompt within Windows, still giving me problems trying to get back in to
Safe Mode.

Hi

Still with mup.sys? If so, try and put a fresh copy of that file into
Windows. With the XP CD in the cd drive run the following command from
Start>Run:

expand X:\i386\mup.sy_ %systemroot%\system32\drivers\mup.sys

Where X is the letter of your cd drive.

You 'may' have a problem if you are running SP2 and only have an earlier
version XP CD.
