How To Fix This Error
Stop Error 0x0000007A (Kernel data inpage error)
This occurs due to a memory error from a faulty hardware device or virus.
your system freezes during Operating System installation, make a note
where the installation stopped. Often, you can narrow down your problem
by knowing when the freeze occurs.
freezes are caused by incorrect settings in the CMOS (complimentary
metal-oxide semiconductor). The CMOS stores special configuration
settings for your computer’s hardware and is used by the BIOS (Basic
Input/Output System) when your machine boots. Your motherboard or
system should have come with a manual that describes the CMOS settings.
If you don’t have a manual, download one from your manufacturer’s Web
page. To change the CMOS settings, press the keys as shown in your
manual or on your PC’s startup screen (often DELETE, ESC, CTRL-ESC, or
CTRL-ALT-ESC) immediately after you boot your computer. If you change
any of the CMOS settings, write down your changes and keep them in a
safe place. Then you can refer to the settings if you need to change
them back or redo them if you reinstall or upgrade to a new version of
Windows later on.
Incorrect CMOS settings for system cache
memory and RAM may confuse the Windows installer and freeze the system.
If your system freezes during setup, try disabling the system cache
memory. If you are able to install the system after your CMOS changes,
then you fixed the problem. If this doesn’t work, then try adding a
wait state to (or slowing down the timing on) your RAM. (Wait states
are periods where the CPU pauses while waiting for data from slower
components.) Adding a wait state causes the computer to address the
memory less quickly and often fixes unexpected freezing problems, black
screens, or unprovoked reboots. After Windows is fully installed, use
the new system for a while to make sure it is stable. Then, restart the
system and change the CMOS settings back. If the system remains stable,
keep the settings; otherwise return to the stable settings permanently.
RAM chips or a boot sector virus can cause inexplicable freezes during
installation. If you suspect your memory might be the trouble and you
have extra RAM chips around, try the installation with the other chips
instead. If you think you have a boot sector virus on your hard drive,
then use a bootable CD-ROM or diskette to check and clean your hard
drive using programs such as Norton AntiVirus (http://www.symantec.com
) or McAfee VirusScan (http://www.mcafee.com
