Installing Vista on a new HD, after "loading windows files" it went to a blue screen with "technical information: STOP: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff80009abce76, 0xfffff98001afd688, 0xfffff98001afd060)

i removed one of my memory sticks and restarted, it actually started installing, picked my language and disk and all that, but then all the sudden DUN DUN DUNNNnn. Blue screen, same info. Should i continue playing with the memory or dont bother? I really want to get this thing working.

I would suspect
1. Faulty ram
2. Other Faulty hardware, very likely graphics card.

I would check the seating of the ram and other hardware.

I would run Memtest - do you know how or do you wish the program .

NB I would also check the CD for fingerprints etc.

Memtest
See this guide please and download the latest version of Memtest.
It is an ISO so you will need to use the burning program on the link to burn the image.

As you stated that the install actually ran when you removed one of the memory modules I would advise you to check the connections on the ram sticks, a very SOFT eraser ie: soft rubber is ideal - do not use a spirit based cleaner.

That motherboard has onboard graphics - are you using those or DO you have a separate card.
If you do have a separate graphics card I would tend towards connecting to the onboard graphics and setting the BIOS to use onboard graphics.
This would be a quite effective check on the grpahics aspect.

Thought this may help for Memtest



MEMTEST

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-2.11.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-2.11.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS
Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the "errors" line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

I'm new here, but since I have a PC on my bench doing the 7E Stop Error, which I don't seem to be able to fix, I am reading this thread with GREAT interest.

This PC is only about a year old, it's an ACER mini desktop with integrated video and two sticks of ram.
I share this question with the OP, , , "why would the PC run perfectly GOOD in Safe Mode, even going on the internet, with no BSOD's at all, but just booting up in Normal mode goes right to the dreaded 7E BSOD?

I've taken the HD out and connected it to my own desktop as a slave drive, where I ran all my Anti-Malware
software on it and repeated 'CHKDSK /r /f' on it

I don't remember the OP asking this exact question, but it's definitely pertinent to the conversation.
I'm not trying to hijack his thread, but just throw another log on the fire.

When I searched the web for a fix for this problem, I found a fix in the form of a program to download,
but every time I click on the "Download" button, I get a file not found type of error. So here I am,
looking for the same answer as the OP.

Cheers Mates!
The Shadow :D

PS: I've been advised that I'm in error commenting on this topic, but that I need to start my own thread on exactly the same topic. :D

Welcome to GeekstoGo.
PLEASE start your own thread. It becomes total confusion to try and help two people on one thread.
Once you do so I will send you the first method you should use to establish the cause.

Please EDIT this thread to indicate that you have so done.

I ran a memory test, did about 11 passes, do i need to turn off Cache or anything like that? Thought i remembered reading somewhere that having cache on will give me an inaccurate result.

I am running over a seperate video card also. Im gonna run the test again, but longer this time, if still nothing ill change video to MB.

1. How much ram is in the machine and in how many sticks.

The good thing about Memtest is that any error reported is unaffected by running in the mode as supplied.. In otherwords it will not produce an error if there is NOT one.
I do not have sufficient knowledge of the program to tell you if you should turn Cache off.

However on the INSTALL - I fail to see how an error, undetected by MEMTEST in its normal commissioned mode could affect the install.

Memtest having run on 11 passes without error -
I now suspect that the removing of one stick of ram and the extra progress made is a red herring.
I am going with as in my first post -
Faulty hardware
Damaged CD

Having now examined the motherboard spec:
Is the ram fitted dual channel
Is this the ONLY HDD in that computer OR is this a replacement for what was a drive of a RAID array
