View Full Version : Win32k.sys (Blue screen of death - Win2k style!)

I'm running Win2K Pro and it has been running fine up until this point when whilst trying to mount a network drive, and then restarting, I was presented with something I hadn't seen in a while... a blue screen of death! I tried restarting several times, but it kept coming back, complaining of 'STOP: (then a large string of hex numbers) KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED' followed by even more hex numbers, and then finally saying the exception was in 'Win32k.sys'. I am able to go into safe mode, and I uninstalled Service pack 2, in the hope that the file would be replaced... it was, but the error persists.

Also, I know it is not a hardware problem, because Linux starts fine.

You can hardly blame MS for this one..
