BSOD & Error Messages

August 5, 2011 at 14:30:56
Specs: Windows XP, 2GB
After installing a mb and cpu (an MSI K9N4 Ultra and AMD Athlon 64x2 4200+ w/ 2 GB ddr 2 RAM) , starting up in normal mode I get the BSOD & STOP: 0x0000007E (0xF779C756,0xF79FB42C, 0xF79B1228). The error message mentions chaning video adapter and I have, but I still get the same dang thing! I have run checkdisk with automatic repairs, and even tried a repair installation of Windows XP Pro w/SP2 ot no avail. Before the attempted repair installation, it booted into 'Safe Mode' with no problem, and no apparent driver problems shown in Device Manager. I have switched the memory as well, and still the BSOD. When Googling the entire error message, I get nothing.

Anyone got any ideas?

Can't get it to boot due to attempted repair installation of XP. Thanks though. Any one else have any ideas that might help? I appreciate it.

If you can slave your drive to another comp, you can get the MiniDump file & analyze it, maybe even use WhoCrashed.

Another thought, I would delete the partition & reinstall XP again.

Start by using all the onboard devices only, then add any extra cards, once you confirm the install is stable.

Did you have Intel before installing the AMD?

Can't do that without losing programs and data. Programs most important because can't find discs for all of them.

Got you, let me get my head together again, it's 12.30 am here in Western Australia.

I am now going to work on the Intel question.

Yes. Curiously, never had to re-activate Windows, or got a HAL error. At this point, I'd prefer either of them to this crap.

Any ideas? BTW< it's not generating dump files into minidump folder.

I did slipstream sp3 into the XP Pro disc in hopes that'd somehow make a difference, to no avail. I still get BSOD STOP:0x0000007E
(0xC0000005, 0xF77FC756, 0xF79FB42C, 0xF79FB128).

Any ideas I can try?

"Any ideas I can try?"

I'm waiting on an answer to my Intel question.

Sorry, I wasn't more clear in my previous response. It did indeed have an Intel chip before the AMD.
