BSOD on startup with Win XP

  1. Hello fng here. I am having a BSOD problem with my PC. When I start it up, it boots to the black startup screen then I get a Stop error (stop: 0x0000007e (0xc000005, 0xba1a1211, 0xba503724, 0xba503420).) Before I finally got the automatic restart turned off, it just looped constantly. I've tried booting from the cd, and doing a repair install, tried booting in safe mode, tried best last know config but nothing has worked so far. I am now running chkdsk /r. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    You should try doing various searches on this forum http://www.techspot.com/vb/menu46.html such as 'black screen at boot', 'stop 0x0000007e' and so forth. Actually, you might do better to post in that forum, but a mod will probably move it if appropriate.

    Afraid there are 1000's of posts, but patience may be rewarded.....good luck
