PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: WXP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



Desktop starts normally, however, within 20 seconds, a blue screen appears, which says... "A problem has been detected..." "check adequate disk space..." "check with hardware vendor for BIOS updates..." Then, it starts to "begin dumping of Physical hardware", and literally counts from 1 to 100 and then shuts down, restarts, and then begins the same process over again.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? I am able to get into "SAFE MODE" before the above process begins.

Please download:
Hijack This

Make sure you unzip hijack this to its own folder
such as C:\Program files as this is where the backups will
be created.Run Hijack this but do NOT fix anything.Click save
log and a log will open in notepad.Copy and paste your log here.

This program is small enough to fit on a floppy if you have to use another computer to download
