When I got home today I saw my computer is "near-freezing" (Mouse can move but clicking anything won't work) after couple minutes later of random-clicking my comp rebooting. I thought it was just a regular computer crash..but after it rebooted it won't boot up anymore. After "detecting IDE deveices" the monitor goes black. Bascailly the comp won't make it to the boot screen and it crashes when it is about going to the windows boot screen. Ok so I thought this would be fixed by booting into safe mode and mess around with it..but I was wrong..I couldn't boot into safe mode (the screen freezes up after I HIT ENTER to boot to safe mode). Basically it won't boot to anything..I tried last known config..etc..everything. The furthest my comp can make is to the screen where you can select safe mode etc..

After this I tried booting with Windows XP CD..it will not work..I can hit F6 to the "Windows Automated System Recovery" but I DO NOT have the disc. The computer crashes and gives me BSOD if I let it continue to load System Files. I tried booting with Norton Ghost I get the same BSOD. The code is 0x0000007b.

I tried resetting BIOS and it doesn't work. I also tried flashing bios but it won't let me flash for some reason..I get some error code like "chipset/flash part isn't avaliable" and I did followed the instructions. (I usually flash it in Windows, but now I can't even get to windows).

I also tried booting some HDD recovery utlities but it would not boot for some reason..the screen just goes black. Need help!!! PLEASE :whistling:

Heres the 7B error

0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

Windows lost access to the system partition or boot volume during the startup process. Typical causes: Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware, or a virus.

0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

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.

Microsoft thinks it has to do witha creative labs joystick.

or this

You can try using the recovery console, but you will have to find a XP cd to get the recovery console from it.

http://support.micro....com/kb/314058/

I get paid to do this for people so i usually try the recovery console. I have had to use a low level formatting once to get to where i could install XP.

Starting the Windows Recovery Console
To start the Windows Recovery Console, use one of the following methods:
• Use the Windows Setup floppy disks or the Windows CD-ROM to start your computer. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10 or press 'R" to repair.


But I coudln't even get to "Welcome Screen"..I get BSOD before the Welcome screen

I have a Vaio PCG-R505TSK and did a fresh install of everything (XP, Office 2003, etc) about 2 weeks ago. Everything worked great for 3 or 4 days. Powered up the next morning and boot process hangs up on SONY logo with C-Drive LED and fan going. Start Sequence is XP Pro logo on black screen, then a bright blue DOS-looking popup for about half a second and then computer hangs up on the SONY logo. Tried starting in Safe Mode, tried starting from XP cd, without success. Tried removing battery and then all of the above, still no success. Need help from someone who knows XP better than me.

I just did some testing with my cousin's comp.

1. Hooked up my HD to his comp and BOOT MY DRIVE, won't boot up.
2. Hooked up my HD to his comp and BOOT HIS DRIVE, won't boot (If i take out my drive from his comp it boots up fine)
3. Hooked up HIS drive to MY COMP, BOOTS UP FINE
4. Booting the XP CD with HIS COMP while having my drive hooked up to his comp, boots up fine and doing CHKDSK now with the recovery console (Takes LONG TIME)
5. BOtting the XP CD with MY COMP and with HIS DRIVE hooked up to MY comp (without my HDD) BSOD (Obviously there is something wrong with my comp, I am thinking about motherboard, because i get BSOD with HIS drive)


Any conclusion here? I am thinking both my HDD and motherboard screwed up at same time..but that is just really rare..I don't know..I'm going to work in like 10 minutes gotta do some more testing tonight.

I didn't knwo whether or not this was worthy of a seperate thread as it is a similar problem.

After recently restoring my computer I cannot get Windows to boot at all. Or rather I can't get the OS to boot from the Hard Disk. It would yesterday but it won't now. I am using a Windows 2000 boot disk to load XP.
(I actually thought Windows hadn't recovered and was going to use ther boot disk to install XP PRO from CD.. when I booted from the 2000 disk it went straight to the XP home loading screen. Anyone have any ideas as to what's going on there??

During the Chkdsk the comp freezed at 2%, and during the HDD scan with HHD recovery program it freezes at around 2%..I am thinking that my HD went bad and also some other parts in my comp went bad at same time I guess? Because I couldn't boot up windows XP WITHOUT a HD..lets see..my mobo?

I don't know what should I do here..I've tried everything..this is my conclusion for the problem:

The motherboard's controller went bad and it damaged my HD at same time..so I guess my motherboard needs a replacement and my HD also need a replacement. I just done flashing the mobo bios to newest version..still does not help...

The major problems:

#1. CD/DVDs will not boot with my motherboard, even tried Knoopix and many other bootable CDs. - XP would get to the "Welcome Screen" and goes BSOD with error code posted above.

#2. HD went bad and it looks like it is unrecoverable..I am going to try putting the drive on the freezer see if it helps. My HD also causes other drives won't boot if it is hooked up to other PCs, so right now I do not know how to backup my files.


Any help/suggestions from Staffs would be apperciated, thanks.

Ok...this is going to sound goofy, but switch the RAM modules around...put stick one where stick two is now and vise versa. Then try to boot the machine. Let me know if you see any difference at all.
