Error Message, Please Help
« on: 20-January-05, 04:00:08 »

I'm getting the following message:
"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:

Run a system diagnostic utility supplied by your hardware manufacturer. In particular, run a memory check, and check for faulty or mismatched memory. Try changing video adapters.

Disable or remove any newly installed hardware and drivers. Disable or remove any newly installed software. 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: 0x0000007F (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x0000000, 0x0000000)"

I just got this Motherboard and cpu, and I am trying to boot from the win XP cd to install it.  It starts to install then this message pops up.  I'm pretty darn sure I've plugged everything in correctly, and I am wondering if there is something in BIOS that I need to do.

Go into the cmos setup and set your boot order to cdrom, harddisk,floppy, then try booting to the WinXP cd in the drive.

  • FastEddie is right. It sounds like your old version of Windows XP is loading the old drivers on your new hardware and obviously it's not working; thus, you get a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).

    Try doing what FastEddie said. Repair or re-install windows and see what happens.

    The guys here at the forum recommend a fresh clean install of windows when doing anything.

    Guess I should have mentioned this before, but I Boot from CD and it starts installing win xp, then when it says windows is starting setup, thats when it happens, I can't even start reformatting. I'm going to try to boot with a win 98 disk so that I can delete the active partitions,  and start from scratch.

    You can delete the active partitions with the WinXP cd as well.  Wait for the prompt "Press any key to boot to cd" then boot to the WinXP install cd.  Delete the active boot partition there, create a new boot partition, format the partition, install the os, etc...
