Is this simply a matter of upgrading the drivers or am I dealing with a failing system or something else?

Thank you for your help.

Okay, so its not hardware, thats good....I would go to manufacturers web site and get latest motherboard chipset and device drivers for the board...boot to safe mode and install chipset drivers 1st!, boot, then NIC,GPU and sound

Your link does not give a list.

It says select an O/S.

Device not functioning. Seems all related to net. Update the LAN driver and see what happens.

Actually, your quite right....a failed NIC driver initialization would account for most of those event logs....

Ok,
I downloaded & installed the Nic, Video & audio drivers
laptop still will not boot.
now it wont even go into safe mode with network stalls at Mup.sys
booting to safe mode (without network) worked

If I restart after booting to safe mode it boots normally

The main reasons for this Windows XP or Win 2000 boot hang or alleged mup.sys issue are:

Hard disk failure or corruption
A corrupted registry or registry hive
New hardware has been installed but not did not completely "Register or re-Register" correctly
New hardware has been installed but it is faulty or failing
The new hardware's driver or windows itself has been compromised (Disk data corruption or by a virus) or (rare) needs to be updated
The power supply is marginal in output or failing (Common per user feedback)
BIOS\ESCD\Motherboard chipset driver conflict with a component, its driver, or its registry data
Existing hardware including the motherboard may have failed in a specific way but not catastrophically.



So probably the NIC is stuffed.

used the ASUS provided restore cd's
personally I wouldn't use the recovery CD's - struck it several times where the supplied CD's / DVD is either corrupt or something else is wrong with it.

One way to tell, since this is turned to custard - wipe the drive, install the OS with a standard XP CD, use the COA on the back of the laptop, then download what ever drivers from the site you linked previously.

"If" it still plays up on a standard install then theres a chance there is also a hardware problem.
