HELP! My computer is freezing on startup!

March 11, 2014 at 20:18:39
Specs: Windows XP
I am on a Dell Latitude D830 using XP and I am in need of some help. The computer's battery doesn't work apparently because it needs to be on the charger to be on. So one day I had it on the charger and it worked fine and everything was okay. I turned it off (which I RARELY did) to move from one place to another (houses). When I turned it on the next day it gave me the startup screen with the options (start in safe mode, recommended mode, etc) and whichever one i do it freezes at

system 32 mup.sys (or something like that)
I am in desperate need of help and I'm running out of time to fix it! Any assistance is appreciated.

Another to try, rather than the Safe mode option in that list of choices, try to boot into Standard VGA mode.

As it was working until you moved it, if all else fails try resetting the motherboard like this:
Turn off laptop, remove from domestic power and remove battery if fitted. Hold the power off/on button in for about 20 seconds. Re-assemble and see if it helps. It has been known to "unstick" things at times and is easy to try.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
