When I try and boot into Windows XP, I get a blue screen with the following info:

"STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC000001D, 0xF82E5B74, 0xF89454BC, 0xF89451B8)

NDIS.sys - Address F82E5B74 base at F82D8000, DateStamp 41107ec3"

What does this mean, and how do I fix it?

Hi dstolman

Are you using a Creative Labs SoundBlaster 16 Joystick?

If you are, read this Microsoft article.

I am researching your problem and will post back with any results...

No joystick. I read an article where something similar happened with Logitec devices, none of those either.

dstolman...

How did you install XP? Was the installation done with a retail version of the software?

For this kind or error we need to know
1) What type of computer -Compaq?
2) is this a windows xp upgrade
3) Did you just install Service pack 2
4) Did you install any new hardware Like a joystick etc.

It's an HP, model XT963, and I've had SP2 on for a while, since it first came out.

Howdy:

Did this just start?? If so, did you install anything different or remove something just prior to the error message??

Does your machine boot into Windows at all and have you tried booting into safe mode?

I get the blue screen just after the Windows loading screen appears. It just restarts, I got the error messages by disabling automatic restarts on system failure. I cannot get into safe mode because it starts to load then just restarts.

Is your XP disk one supplied by HP (recovery) or is it a full retail version of the OS?

It's not HP. My HP came with Windows ME and a recovery partition. When XP came out, I got the full retail version of XP Pro and did a format and reinstall. No HP stuff in the OS.
