Go into your BIOS when you first turn on the laptop. Look in there and see if it is seeing the hard drive. If it sees it, then I would suggest try using a boot disk, to format the drive. If you can format the drive, then try installing Windows XP from there and it should do it then. If you BIOS doesn't see it then you'll need physically take the hard drive out of the laptop and reseat it and hope the BIOS sees it. If it doesn't see it then you need to get your hard drive replaced.

Stop:0x0000007b


Hi Jefferson,
  1. Did you just install or make a change to a hard drive controller? If so, there's a good chance that the change you made caused the STOP 0x0000007B error.

    Undo the change and test for the 0x7B blue screen error.

    Depending on what changes you made, some solutions might include:

  2. Verify that the SCSI chain is correctly terminated, assuming you're using SCSI hard drives in your computer. Incorrect SCSI termination has been known to cause STOP 0x0000007B errors.

    Note: Most home computers don't utilize SCSI hard drives.
  3. Verify that the hard drive is properly installed. An improperly installed hard drive could cause STOP 0x0000007B errors and other issues.
  4. Verify that the hard drive is configured properly in BIOS. The STOP 0x0000007B error could occur if the hard drive settings in BIOS are incorrect.
  5. Scan your computer for viruses. Certain viruses that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector can cause STOP 0x0000007B errors.

    Important: Make sure your virus scanning software is updated and configured to scan the MBR and boot sector.
  6. Update the drivers for your hard drive controller. If the drivers to your hard drive controller are outdated, incorrect, or corrupted then the STOP 0x0000007B error will likely occur.

    Note: If the STOP 0x0000007B error occurs during the Windows setup process and you suspect that the reason is driver related, be sure to install the latest hard drive controller driver from the manufacturer for use during the installation of the operating system.

    Note: This is a likely solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC0000034.
  7. Change the SATA mode in BIOS to IDE mode. Disabling some of the advanced features of SATA drives in BIOS could stop the STOP 0x0000007B error from showing up, especially if you're seeing it in Windows XP or during a Windows XP installation.

    Note: Depending on your BIOS make and version, SATA mode may be referred to as AHCI mode and IDE mode may be referred to as either Legacy, ATA, or Compatibility Mode.

    Note: While not a common solution, you may also want to try the reverse - see if IDE mode is selected in BIOS and if so change it to AHCI, especially if you see the STOP 0x0000007B error in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista.
  8. Run chkdsk on your hard drive. If the boot volume is corrupted, the chkdsk command might repair the corruption.

    Important: You'll likely have to run chkdsk from the Recovery Console.

    Note: This will likely be the solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC0000032.
  9. Perform an extensive test of your hard drive. If your hard drive has a physical problem, one very likely situation is the STOP 0x0000007B error you're seeing.

    Replace the hard drive if the diagnostics you complete suggest that there is a hardware problem with the drive.
  10. Run the fixmbr command to create a new master boot record. A corrupted master boot record might be causing your STOP 0x0000007B error.

    Note: This will likely be the solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC000000E.
  11. Clear the CMOS. Sometimes the STOP 0x0000007B error is caused by a BIOS memory issue. Clearing the CMOS could solve that problem.
  12. Update your BIOS. In some situations, an outdated BIOS could cause a STOP 0x0000007B error due to incompatibilities with a hard drive controller.
  13. Update the hard drive controller's firmware if possible. Just as with the BIOS in the previous step, an incompatibility could be causing the 0x7B error and a firmware update from the manufacturer may correct the problem.
  14. Repair your Windows installation. If you've just replaced the motherboard in a computer without reinstalling Windows then this will likely fix your problem.

    Note: Sometimes a Windows repair will not fix a STOP 0x0000007B error. In those cases, a clean installation of Windows should do the trick.

    If you haven't just replaced your motherboard, a Windows reinstall probably will not fix your STOP 0x7B issue.
Hope this helps,
If you need further assistance please get back in touch and i'll see what else we can do.

Thanks,
Gary

Hello, i have sony vaio VPCEB46FG laptop & i have


Hi,

You're getting what's known as the 'blue screen of death' as some may call it.
This happens for various reasons, but usually occurs when Windows encounters a conflict with a hardware component in your laptop. When you try to install XP, are you doing so as a secondary operating system (dual OS boot) or are you trying to install it over Windows 7?
If you are installing XP over Windows 7, try doing a full format during setup instead of the usual quick setup. This may take some time, possibly requiring you to format the hard drive overnight but it may well solve any 'blue screen' issues you're experiencing.

Let me know if I can assist any further.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Hello, My laptop will not start the windows set-up/Fresh Install scenario. after the drivers get loaded and says starting windows it goes to the BSOD error Stop 0x0000007B, I figure this to be a MBR virus...


blue-gw42ordsyt3sl3dyidksgpsd-2-0.png
In Figure 2-2 you can also see that the Windows service SPCMDCON.SYS has failed. From the BSOD, you should be able to gather the following information:
•The stop error number, which uniquely identifies the error
•The stop error parameters, which provide additional information relating to the specific stop error number
•Driver information is available if the source of the problem relates to drivers
Armed with this information, you are able to search online to establish the problem and hopefully a resolution.
In addition to the information available on the blue screen, if the system is able to be rebooted after the BSOD, either normally or using Safe Mode, it is useful to take a look in the System Event Log and view the error message. For example, a faulty driver during boot up usually has the stop error code STOP: 0x00000050 and an Error EventID of 1003.
If your system refuses to reboot successfully, or is trapped within a perpetual BSOD that restarts over and over again, you should take the following steps. Press F8 after the BIOS screen appears. From Advanced Boot Options, select Disable automatic restart on system failure, as shown in Figure 2-3. This allows you to read and make note of the information contained on the BSOD. You can then allow Windows to attempt a reboot. If the perpetual loop reoccurs, select another option, such as Safe Mode, from the Advanced Boot Options menu.

To disable the system from automatically rebooting, take the following steps:
1.Click Start, right-click Computer, and select Properties.
2.Click Advanced System Settings.
3.In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings.
4.In the System Failure box, clear the Automatically Restart check box.
These steps can also be configured if the system is booted in Safe Mode. There are over 300 unique stop codes, and most are quite rare. The full list
can be found on MSDN within the Bug Checks (Blue Screens) reference at

STOP: 0x00000034 blue screen error... says to disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing but I can't access windows it keeps restarting and going back to blue screen..... safe mode dont work,...


Hi,

This is a cache manager error or a missing DLL file error. This might have heppend as a result of some hardware of software changes that you might have made recently. You can either install the removed drivers once again or need to run a repair reinstall of windows to get the curropt dll files working again.

Laptop starts and after a while of using a blue error box falshes on the screen and turns off comp I can't even read the blue box its sooo quick!


That is called the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
try a chkdsk:


Chkdsk
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type Chkdsk C: /R at the prompt.

Or try a XP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
