This error is driving me crazy... Stop Error: 0x0000007F or Stop Error: 0x0000007E. I was using my computer fine last night after waiting for a month for my replacement SSD to arrive. I installed Windows and Linux and it worked fine for a few hours but then it stopped working. I disconnected the dvd drive, extra internal drive, any usb devices, tested the two DDR2, tested different memory banks, booted from flash drive to try reinstalling windows xp, booted from cd, tried installing windows 7, ubuntu 11.10 and I am still getting this message after setup is done copying all files to ssd. I tested the other internal HDD and same issue. I went to the store to buy a video card hoping that will solve the issue but nothing. I'm still getting same error. What's my next step? Oh yeah, I also went to my BIOS settings and reset everything to default, tried to boot in safe mode but no luck whatsoever.

That is not the whole error message it will display something like:

STOP 0x0000007F (0x000000XX, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP

I'm beginning to suspect the issue might be the mobo or cpu :S

This states Windows 2000 but they use the same code base...

Did you test memory with MemTest ?

Yes, I did. I tested with only one module and then switched it with the other one. Ran that memory test using the utility in the BIOS settings. I don't think both can go bad at the same time.

Check the Memory, each one seperately with http://www.memtest.org

Dual channel memory has to be in at the same time.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Yeap! Swapped out RAM, tested ram, ensured both modules were in and also tested new mobo & PSU but I'm still getting the same error.

I already returned the video card and the only thing I can think of is to test it again but this time ensure both RAM modules are in.

I initially suspected the issue was with the video card because I connected my 32 HD TV and it worked for a few hours but then I shutdown the computer and next morning all this started.

Okay... video card was NOT the problem. I tested the 2nd motherboard and I was getting that error but then I was changing some BIOS settings and eventually everything started working again. I didn't want to change back to my other board so I'm unsure if it the old motherboard works or not.

.

It was that CPU overclock thing that was set to 12x so I just changed it to 6.
