PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:
Problem Application Name & Version: Win XP Pro
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Home built AthlonXP 1.8
Error Messages: In text of message



I came back from a 2 day vacation and turned on my XP-equipped computer with the following result:
The computer would not boot to XP, received message, "..OS not found.."

I ran all kinds of diagnostics to no avail, although HD tested OK for partition, boot sectors, etc.

I finally tried to reinstall, then received the light blue Windows screen that usually accompanies gloom and doom problems. I next received the message "auto chk program not found -skipping Autocheck.."  This was then followed by "Session Manger Initialization terminated unexpectedy with a status of 0xc0003a.."

I then removed the HD, replaced it with a new formatted HD and installed XP (Idea was to get things running in XP, install old HD as slave and recover data/programs.  The installation proceeded to the starting Windows phase, and then I received the following:
STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The Session Manager Initialization System process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000263.

XP was installed last August, and has functioned without a glich until now.

Did you do any performance tweaks? If so, it's possible you disabled the Session Manager service, which is a required item.. You may be able to boot from the CD and use the recovery console

Hi,

Problems could be due to an overheating problem. Make sure all fans are spinning and that the cpu fan is well seated on the cpu.

Also make sure all cards, memory and cpu are well seated in their slots/sockets.
