after using these the pc would hand freeze sometimes, yesterday when the windows xp was loadinf with the bar going from left to right it took around 15 minutes to complete this, after a while on the pc it was shut down and later on restarted.

STOP : 0X0000007E, (0XC0000005, 0X00000000, 0XF797AF14, 0XF797AC14)

i cannot even boot in safe mode - getting an error when the safe mode is in every corner -
unable to load safe mode - window will restar.

i ran the recovery console and done chkdsk /p
it found 1 error so i ran
chkdsk /r

it done this ok

i then reloaded the windows xp cd and done a repair, this completed ok to but when it restarted the same thing happened BSOD
STOP : 0X0000007E, (0XC0000005, 0X00000000, 0XF797AF14, 0XF797AC14)

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. Check Event Viewer (EventVwr.msc) for additional information.

OOPS :blush:
OK we will have to do this a different way then.

Go to the place where you choose Safe Mode and instead choose Boot With Last Known Good Configuration That Worked and let me know if it boots into windows then.

OK I know you said you ran chkdsk /r but you did not post any results so I would like to see that done again running the instructions below.




How to run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). (Courtesy dsenette)
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors

Hi I ran chkdsk /r and it ran ok , the stop error is still there even after doing a repair using the windows cd, I still cannot boot and still cannot get into safe mode. Would this be related to the motherboard drivers, I can run this when I get home.

hi many thanks for your time, i done this and it went through done everything copied all the necessary files, went through to the end where it says - if there is a floppy in the drive please take this out - i took the cd out and it rebooted, but got to the windows screen with the thing going from left to right then after about 20 seconds it shut down with the same BSOD and the same error.

the error didnt have anything at the top like this (SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED )
just the pc had shut down to prevent damege etc and the code at the bottom.

OK this is where it will get a little tricky then. What we are going to do is try what is called a parallel installation. This installs a second windows on your system while keeping your data safe. If it works then you will simply move the data over to the new installation. You will have to reinstall all the programs and get all the updates but a small price to pay to keep you data.




Parallel Installation of Windows XP

Boot to the Windows XP installation cd by pressing a key when the "Press any key to boot from cd" prompt appears at the top of the screen.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press Enter to set up Windows XP.
  • Accept the License Agreement by pressing F8
  • With your current installation selected in the box, press Esc
  • Select C: Partition1 [NTFS] in the box and press Enter
  • To continue setup using this partition, press C
  • Now you should see formatting options...choose the last one, Leave the current file system intact (no changes), and press Enter
  • To use a different folder, press Esc
  • Name the folder WINDOWS0 (just type a 0 (zero)) and press Enter
The Windows installation should begin. This will install Windows to a new folder, leaving your data intact. Any programs installed on the old directory will have to be reinstalled to the new one. Device drivers will also have to be installed for all the hardware to work as it should.

The data will be located in the Documents and Settings folder (C:\Documents and Settings) under your old user account name...so when you set up the new installation, give yourself a slightly different user account name.

No problem. Just so you understand this will make a clean install of XP so if there is a problem with your existing XP it should boot into the new installation with no problem. You will be given a choice when you boot to which Windows installation you want to boot to. It is important that you get the new one. :thumbsup:

Just noticed you had another topic HERE in which Happyrock was helping you earlier this year. You never concluded that topic and it is apparent the motherboard chipset drivers according to your last response were never installed. Is this the same system we are dealing with in this topic?

OK not a problem as I just wanted to make sure we were not dealing with the same system in two different topics.

Have you had a chance to do the parallel installation yet?
