  1. Hey all,

    I built my computer a little over 3 years ago, and haven't had any serious problems. Yesterday I shut it down, and woke up the next morning unable to run Windows. I get the blue screen of death and a stop message along with


    I tried booting in safe mode and reverting to last good configuration, but neither worked - it just went back to the blue screen. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your error is 0x0000006F: SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
    The process creation failure indicated by this error message can only happen during the fairly brief time that the Windows Executive is being initialized, which is during phase 4 of Windows startup. Typically there is a problem with a device driver or with a missing or corrupt system file used during Windows startup.

    I have never seen this one before but there is suprisingly quite an amount of information on the web, If you do a search on SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED you'll see what I am saying.
