Stop error on Safe mode boot up

  1. When I reboot to enter into safe mode i get the following stop error:
    Stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80537009, 0xF789E508, 0xF789E204).

    I rebooted normally (no issue there) and updated my display drivers. Upon rebooting to complete the update I received another stop message:
    Stop: 0x00000050 (0xA6F1A000, 0x00000000, 0x805E9A0B, 0x00000000).

    I shut the system off and restarted several more times and I received several other stop messages:
    Stop: 0x00000050 (0xA7A70000, 0x00000000, 0x805E9A0B, 0x00000000)
    Stop: 0x00000050 (0xA6F37000, 0x00000000, 0x805E9A0B, 0x00000000)
    Stop: 0x00000050 (0xA6F2B000, 0x00000000, 0x805E9A0B, 0x00000000).

    I waited for 15-30 minutes and the system rebooted with no issues.

    Any idea what I should do?

    Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

    A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

    As you can tell these errors can be due to several diverse issues. But at this point we have little to go on. Give us your system specs including OS and security software. Also do the following:

    How to find your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually

    Route44 thanks for the response. I ended up setting my computer back to factory settings and I do not appear to have any additional issues.

    If I have any future issues, I will make sure to add my system specs and minidump files in my original post.
