Computer Specs: on my profile
Computer Age: 1.5 years old, maybe a little older

Yesterday my brother was playing Worms Armageddon and when he tried to shutdown the PC he got the mesage "there are more then one user logged on bla bla bla..." he pressed ok and insteadof showing the logon screen, it showed a black screen for about 4min then rebooted into a BSOD which said the following:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0x0000005, 0xF8B1D999, 0xF997754C, 0xF9977248)

I can boot into safe mode with no porblem and "last known good configuration" does not work., i have system restore enabled so i can try that, i also have the system restoreconsole installed on my machine and i have a system restore disk. I would like to avoid "drastic solutions" as reformatting. I needhelp today please.



Thanks.

First, run a check disk. You can do that in Safe Mode. Open My Computer, right click the C:\ drive, Properties, Tools, Check Now. You'll probably get a prompt that it will have to be scheduled at the next boot. Tell it okay.

I also found this Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900485. It describe the error and has a link to download a hotfix.

Also, check this link to a google search of that error: http://search.micros...p;qu=0x0000007E

Ok, thanks but, my problem is not 0x7E it's 0x0000007E and it doesnt say anyhting about aec.sys so i'll not try that just yet.

Should i try system restore? I've heard that CAN MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE.... :whistling:

Did you run the checkdisk? You might also try running the System File Checker. Be sure to put your Windows CD in the drive. Then click Start, Run, type in SFC /scannow. It will take a little while to run and will replace system files that are damaged or missing.

Did you review any of the other MS articles (from google search link) to see if any applied to your problem?

I don't know if it would make the problem worse.

Here's a link to a Microsoft MVP's site that gives lots of information on doing a Windows XP Repair Install. http://www.michaelst...ll.htm#feedback

Been searching and... this looks like a sound blaster driver problem.

A couple of weeks ago i tried to use an old SB Live CT4780 card, did work the first time, installed the KX project, rebooted and no luck. I removed the card "uninstalled the driver" and everything worked ok. Do you think the remains of KX project are still there? if so, which files do i delete??

This MS article (from the google search link I posted) talks specifically about the stop error and Sound Blaster: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321637

I don't know the the KX Project is. Is that audio drivers for the Sound Blaster card?

You could try running a registry cleaner to clean out any remnants. I recommend Easy Cleaner by ToniArts. You can download it here: http://personal.inet...ne.htm#download

Some other folks on the forum recommend RegSeeker. See this thread for more information about it:

*** Always be careful when modifying the registry. Backup the registry or set a system restore point before making any changes.

I don't believe it's the registry.... I'll try a system restore and see if that helps.

I would think system restore, or repair with XPcd would be the answer here, system restore is bad when a computer is infected with malware otherwise it is a good idea, repair with xpcd is another good idea too

btw 0x00000007E is the same as 0x7E, it is an abriviation

here's a list then
