Q: Windows XP SP3 Blue Screen Restart error. What is the solution?

Windows XP SP3 Blue Screen Restart Error. What is the solution?



Continual BSODs & reboots or can only boot into Safe Mode after installing WinXP SP3?


[NB: The above has been updated many times and now includes "a small tool that will detect the IntelPPM problem and mitigate it before installing (WinXP SP3)."]

Possible workaround: Boot into Safe Mode and rename INTELPMM.SYS to INTELPMM.OLD.

Other references include:

• Error message after you upgrade a computer that uses a processor other than an Intel processor to Windows XP Service Pack 2 or to Windows XP Service Pack 3: "STOP: 0x0000007E":

• HP and Compaq Desktop PCs: Computer Restarts after Displaying Stop Error 0x0000007E [after installing WinXP SP3]
