recently windows freaked out after i tried a restart. The screen went blue and in white text several problems and solutions came up. They said that the problem might be with my video adapter or with bios and that i should try a bios update and try disabling my bios memory options like caching and/or shadowing. The detail code at the bottom of the screen read like this

STOP: 0x0000007E (0x00000005,0x00002B2A,0xF8A07ABC,0xF8A077B8

I have no idea what that means but maybe someone else here does. Upon a hard boot my error reporting classified this as a serious error but the windows website had no suggestions, it couldn't accurately identify the problem. After a basic google search on bios updates i have discovered that it is not an easy process. Hopefully someone here can help out....I'm running a XP SP2 w/ the most recent other security updates (also, no crucial driver updates show up on microsoft's update site). I have AVG antivirus, windows firewall, browse with firefox 1.0.3 and regularly run several antispy programs, including window's own anti-spy. I will also attach a HTlog just to give y'all the full run down.

I have had the same problem but what is happening is windows XP sends the wrong message to the processor and to fix it then you have to update the processor or something about an 8 pin chip that needs to be 16 chip. And it is very annoying. But be carefull with what you install because if you install some programs it will stop this problem alltogether and it never appears again ( program unknown??? sorry), but some programs just make it so that this message will appear none stop and you cant load XP at all unless you clear th hard drive and partition and re-install XP.
