  1. Stupid question I know, but are the hotfixes maintained in this thread specific to the 32-bit version of XP? If so, is there a similar thread for 64-bit hotfixes?
  2. I have ruled out my keyboard/mouse as the cause since I replaced them both with PS/2 versions as well as unplugged all other USB devices from the machine. The only hardware the machine has that isn't part of the onboard stuff is my HIS X1950 Pro Ice3 card and I don't have another PCIe card to replace it with as the test... beyond that, I just reset my CMOS and allowed the default settings to load. I was met with the same result when attempting the standby mode so I can't imagine that it's a hardware related issue and must be something in the o/s... anyone have other suggestions?
  3. For some reason, I can't browse to that url... it redirects me to http://winqual.microsoft.com/hcl/ but displays a blank page. Can you post the md5 sum to your C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe so I can compare it to mine? EDIT: I found the problem with that microsoft page: Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List The Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List is currently only compatible with Internet Explorer 6 and above. We apologize for the inconvenience." Guess they hate firefox!
  4. ...does anyone have any ideas on this? I've been googling but have come up with nothing solid.
  5. I pulled my X1950 Pro and put in a 10-year-old PCI board just to rule out the X1950 as the cause of these problems. Indeed, the old board that obviously doesn't support APM cause an error (below) that was also logged. The odd thing, as I mentioned, is that I get NO log entries when my machine just stays on that "Preparing to stand by..." screen. Is there some sort of logging I can enable that might help track down the cause of my problem? Thanks all!
  6. Thanks for the suggestion. I made a copy of my current profile and literally disabled everything but the HDs, mouse, and keyboard... still no luck ...are there any log files I can view to see what is causing the hangup?
  7. Well, the event logs are literally empty when either I or the O/S tries to go to stand by mode. After I reboot the machine there are no entries around the time I tried to enter stand by mode. I also went through my device manger and literally right-clicked all the devices looking for that power management tab. I think it's a Windows problem only because it locks up. I have read tons of posts stating that USB keyboards/mouse can cause the PC to wake up, but in those cases, the O/S isn't frozen. Any other thoughts? Thanks!
  8. When I attempt to enter standby mode (start menu>turn off computer>stand by) my machine simply hangs on the "going to stand by" screen. Nothing can restore it except a reset. I have APCI mode enabled in my BIOS and I have tried all 3 modes for suspend in the BIOS (auto, S1 (POS) and S3). When this screen is displayed, the mouse can be freely moved around. I have left it on this screen for over 10 minutes and nothing else seems to happen until I force a reset. I should also mention that there aren't any entries in the event log that help out regarding errors to the power management system, etc. I will say that power management is functional in the O/S. I have the monitor set to shut off after 15 min which is does. I followed about 20 minutes worth of google links that were all deadends on this issue. Here are some hardware details if it helps anyone. Thanks in advance. Intel Q6600 Asus P5B-Del board with BIOS version 1215 X1950 Pro video card with latest Catalyst driver (v7.8)
  9. 14 new patches released today... http://www.guru3d.com/newsitem.php?id=5755
  10. Wow, thanks for the level of detail in that reply. I must admit, after looking through the various sections, I really don't see any major differences.
  11. So I've never messed around with security templates as far as I know. Can you explain the process of comparing the current template to the default template?
  12. Ran ad aware, sbybot, and a squared. Firewall settings look good. I am totally sure it's a coretemp thing.
  13. Update: I only seem to get this error when the user is logged in to the machine, but has either pressed winkey+L or the screensaver did so (since the require password box is checked). In other words, the user is logged in, but the machine is on the welcome screen. Does that mean anything to help track it down? EDIT: this isn't true.. the most recent one happened a few minutes ago when I was logged in
  14. I figured this out... for some reason this is part of Coretemp and it runs whenever you load the app. Why is that not documented anywhere?!
  15. Does anyone know what this ALSysIO service is and/or does? Googling it reveals surprisingly little useful information. Source: Service COntrol Manager Event ID: 7035 The ALSysIO service was successfully sent a start control. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
  16. @cluberti - 9 times yesterday. It started happening (as per the logs) about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, I don't know what happened to set it off. Nothing yet today, but the machine was just powered on... we'll see
  17. I did google it and followed most of the links at the url you kindly posted. Unfortunately, I haven't found a definitive answer. I did find this but I don't see how it applies since I'm not using or really know what ASP.NET is
  18. I found an odd entry in my event log today. It happened after I did a windows key + L to lock the machine, when I unlocked it, I found this entry in the event viewer > application log: User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM Event ID: 1081 Windows cannot impersonate the user. (The handle is invalid. ). Group Policy processing aborted. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp. I ran a full malware and virus scan, but found nothing. Does anyone know what this impersonate error is about?
  19. Darn it... even w/ UPHClean installed, I got locked out again. Here are a series of messages under Event Viewer>System This time it started after I left it idle for a few hours... the problem started (I'm assuming at 4:24 PM: 4:24:15 PM Application popup: Windows : Other people are logged on to this computer. Restarting Windows might cause them to lose data. Do you want to continue restarting? ---This happened with the monitor in power savings mode; I did not ask the system to restart at all! 4:24:23 PM The Event log service was stopped. 4:25:17 PM Port A is up with 1000 Mbps 4:25:17 PM The Event log service was started. 4:25:17 PM Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 5.01. 2600 Service Pack 2 Multiprocessor Free. 4:25:20 PM The system detected that network adapter \DEVICE\TCPIP_{75D86EC6-11C9-432A-8FB8-B6B6647C8A7B} was disconnected from the network, and the adapter's network configuration has been released.

At this point I forced a restart... ...does any of this make sense to anyone?
  20. Thanks for the replies.... I'll give User Profile Hive Cleanup Service a try.
  21. Man, I'm going crazy with this... out of the blue, the system is doing this again! I spent the past few hours googling around but came up with nothing... anyone?
  22. As I understand it, nLite only works for builing an unattended CD. I'd like to remove it from a live XP Pro SP2.
  23. Can someone point me to a method to remove the windows media player 9 that comes pre-installed on my XP Pro SP2 CD? Thanks. I searched the forums but found nothing concrete.
