I went to start up my computer and received the following error: STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X00000000, 0XF8950F1C, 0XF8950C1C) I already tried booting with the XP CD and tried repairing it with the Windows XP CD. I can get to the C:\ prompt and it does identify the size of the drive, however, I cannot access it. I already tried safe mode, last known configuration, and regular windows boot up. No luck. Also, I have not added or removed any programs or hardware. Please help. Mark
