By msbecca ·
Got on computer after son for about 30 min when the computer blinked and a black screen appeared stating windows didnt start successfully. reason may be hardware or software change. If stop responding go to last good configuration or use safe mode. to make changes. After this the windows xp screen pops up as if going to desktop but a blue screen pops up stating a problem has been detected and windows has shut down for to prevent damage. Check driver and disable or vendors for bios update. Message code 0x0000007e(0xc0000005,0x872ae113,0xf7b767b0,0xf7b764ac. I havent made any changes and would like to know what these codes mean and how can I clear them. It will not go past the blue screen so therefore I cant get to my desktop , no access to internet. I tried safe mode and F8, F2,F12 and nothing is working... Please Help! What can I do???

how to fix stop error in window xp

Method 1: Make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space
First, make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space. The Stop error can be caused by insufficient hard disk space.

If you can use safe mode or the Recovery Console to start the computer, delete any unnecessary temporary files, Internet cache files, program backup files, and files that contain saved file fragments from disk scans (.chk files). You can also install Windows XP on another hard disk that has more free space.

If you cannot start the computer, go to the next method to update the computer BIOS.

For more information about safe mode or the Recovery Console, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
315222 ( ) A description of the Safe Boot Mode options in Windows XP
314058 ( ) Description of the Windows XP Recovery Console
Method 2: Update the computer BIOS
If freeing space on your hard disk did not resolve the problem, the BIOS might have to be updated. Use the hardware and software vendor contact information articles that are listed in the "References" section to contact the computer manufacturer to obtain the most recent BIOS update.

Note When you update the BIOS, you might have to disable BIOS memory options, such as caching or shadowing, temporarily.
Method 3: Disable or update device drivers
If you have updated the BIOS successfully and the problem persists, the video adapter drivers on the computer might have to be updated or disabled. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the video adapter drivers:
1. If a driver is listed by name in the Stop error message, disable or remove that driver.
oIf the error occurs during the startup sequence and the system partition uses the NTFS file system, you might be able to use safe mode to rename or to delete the faulty driver.
oIf the driver is used as part of the system startup process in safe mode, you must use the Recovery Console to start the computer.
2.If the Stop error message does not indicate a specific driver, update the video adapter drivers to the latest versions.
3.Disable or remove any drivers or services that you recently added.
4.Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to determine whether the PCI devices in the computer are compatible with Windows XP.
