I'm not as computer savvy as many of you, but I think this is what you are looking for:
"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:
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers, check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
Stop: O0000007B (OXF78A2524, OXC0000034, OX00000000, OX00000000)"
I did the chkdsk/F, but it ran too fast to note what happened. I do have an external hard drive with my backup information via Acronis True Image, but can't access it at this point due to a serial number problem, so I don't want to remove that drive.
I am beginning to believe that my original Windows XP Pro was corrupted, and when I reinstalled the OS I should have formatted the drive first? It seems like I have two OS systems installed?
I hope this is enough information to help. Thanks so much!
