1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.

Good luck!!!

From your request, the question is very general.

Code Stop 0x0000007B, it means "inaccessible boot device": Windows is not able to read from the device it's supposed to be booting from. That device would normally be your hard drive - but if you're getting this during Windows installation, it could be something wrong with your CD or DVD drive..

The Stop 0x0000007B error message will be displayed on your screen with a lot of other information in what is know as the "Blue Screen Of Death" or "BSOD".

Different PCs have different "IDE or Sata interface default settings" depending on the OEM manufacturer specifications. Check your OEM motherboard require any BIOS updating.

If your PC is a desktop, remove all the PCI devices installed on the PCI slots.

If you can access to the CMOS BIOS, reset the settings to default, save the settings and reboot your computer.

If the your PC can access to windows, do a "chkdsk /f/r" from the "Command Prompt".

If not you have to reinstall the OS.

if resetting the bios does not work, you either got a nasty virus, or the hardware has an issue. my suggestion, if resetting bios is not the solution, backup your data and reinstall windows

Error Message while booting with blue screen


Basically this occurs by virus hit.. Now better install new operating system and never download cracks or keygens from any sites, most of them will contain virus which causes this.. and note while using pen drives too hold shift key when it is being inserted, this prevents automatic execution of virus.

My Hp Pavilion dv5000 crashed! XP cd displays error message!


If you are facing this issue while installing Windows, Most probably there is an issue with the memory card. If you have two memory modules try to use one of the memory modules in each slot at a time. If you have only one memory stick then try to use it one by one on each slot. If you it does not work then probably you might have to replace the memory stick.

Hope you find this information helpful.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

An error to my microsoft


Try putting the computer into safe mode.

To do this shut the computer down.

As the computer gets ready to start booting up, hold down on the F8 key.

At the menu, move the arrow keys on your keyboard to safe mode and press enter.

Once Windows finishes booting up in safe mode, restart the computer in normal mode.

This can repair the message.

I cannot reformat my pc windows xp,there's an error


If you are getting an error during installation its not good :(

Its prob either yor ram or hard drive faulty. Download memtest and test ram 1st as thats the most likely cause. Check that optimised defaults are loaded in bios also.
