Using "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure." I receive this BSOD. It occurs either just before or while the Welcome Screen is loading. My tools for dealing with it are the Windows XP Pro CD and the BIOS. On this thread is some additional information, such as services that are enabled or disabled, etc. "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters. Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x3F3F3F3F, 0xF78F04FC, 0XF78F01F8)" This is a possibility, as I am dealing with viruses, and my computer uses an AMD CPU. If this is the case, the following may work.. (I am going to try it after the CHKDSK /R completes... I've recently tried the "DISABLE INTELPPM" as a kind of stab in the dark, but received this message, which I kind of expected... "The registry entry for the INTELPPM service cannot be located. Check that the name of the service is specified correctly." I am currently at a loss, and searching for something else to fix the BSoD problem. Please help =) ? Edit: If I use the DISKPART command, would it be possible to create a separate install of windows on it, and from there investigate the original partition/install? Also, assuming that is viable, the amount of space available is only 59710 MB. Is that enough?
