BSOD after SP3 upgrade

HP system BSODs after you update Service Pack 3.  Windows is not the problem with this, it actually is based on how the system was built. HP uses a common image to build there systems but machines with a Z in the model are based on AMD chips.  When you upgrade if a intelppm file exists and it is enabled in the registry the system could BSOD.  Here are some things to try  I found this suggestion on many boards one of them was http://www.techsnack.net/how-to-solve-windows-blue-screen-after-upgrade-tp-xp-sp3

  1. Restart computer and press F8 key repeatedly until Windows Advanced Options Menu appears.
  2. Choose Safe Mode.
  3. Browse to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers.
  4. Find a file named “intelppm.sys” and rename it to “XXXintelppm.syx“.
  5. Restart.

The problem should be fixed and you will no longer get the same error message.
