I've an almost new laptop with XP Home. I've loaded most of my software without problem but after loading my Siemens Mobile Phone Manager I've had problems.
On booting I now get 'Checking File System' on D: (my HDD is partitoned 45GB C: and the same for D:). Usually it reports 10% complete then hangs and I get a Blue screen reporting 'Machine Exception 0x0000009C + 0x00000004 + 0x8054FF0 and others'.
If I RUN>CMD>CHKDSK D: then the disk is checked and reported OK.
If I press 'any key' when the XP message 'Checking File System' appears then XP boots but most programs on C: don't run.
I've used a RP to before I installed the offending software but the problem hasn't done away.
If you have a full XP CD not a Restore disc, put it in the Comp then from run type SFC /SCANNOW this should correct any changed files or corrupt files. You could also download Microsoft PowerToys Tweak UI these are free, then after loadding the program look at the repair tab and do a repair of System files.
Hi woodchip. I've only the Restore disks so I downloaded and ran Tweak UI from the MS site. However under 'Repair' it doesn't offer System Files (Various Icons, Font Folder, Regedit, Unread Mail count).
The use of System Restore seems to have stopped me solving the problem. I reinstalled the offending software (Siemans Mobile Phone Manager) then used the Siemans Uninstall facility. This seems to have removed the problem (most likely the GPRS module) and all is now well after XP completed itd scan of both my C: and D: drives.
