  1. Hello

    I am fairly new to the site and I rarely or never post for help..

    Any ways I wake this morning to find that my computer had restart itself... Now I have resently took my floppy drive while cleaning out the dust in the case.. Figured I didn't need it any more. When I boot up I get the message blah blah can't find floppy F1 to continue.. ok that was like 3 days ago...

    So I try starting windows in normal mode... I doesn't even get to the loading windows screen before rebooting..

    So I try starting it using the best known working settings.. same thing happens..

    Then I try safe mode maybe I could do a system restore... I does the same thing...

    So I try to reinstall xp... I get all the way to where it says loading windows and I get this error...

    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 screens 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

    Check with your hadware 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, pres F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007e (0xc0000005,0xf731f21f,0xf78d21b4,0xf78d1ebo)

    *** VIDEOPRT.SYS - Adress F731F21F base at F7313000, DateStamp 41107d08

    Now I took my HD out and took over to a family members house and pluged it into there computer and it loads up just fin no problems...

    My build is..

    MSI K8N Neo4-F 939 NVIDIA nForce4
    AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz Socket 939
    EVGA GForce 7300 GT 512 Video card
    WD Raptor HD SATA

    Try to go in your BIOS, usually you hold down the Delete key. Just make sure its showing your hardware configuration correctly and then save and exit, reboot.

    Maybe, check to see whether your hard disk is physically corectly connected in you motherbord, try it out on another computer as a slave to see whether it can be picked.

    Feed back
