After installing Windows XP SP3 (upgrading from SP2), it shows a blank screen - rather than any login. I can login via safe mode (with networking), but not during normal settings. Anyone see this - this feels like it may be a common issue with SP3.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Were you using a custom GINA prior to the upgrade? – Chris S Jun 20 '11 at 13:05
Have you checked all the drivers in safe mode? – Michael K Jun 20 '11 at 13:53

I too had this exact same issue and so have many other people. To fix it i had to uninstall the update, restart the machine and re-install and this fixed the issue
