You can purchase a usb hotswap device for around 40 dollars which will allow you to plug your hdd into another computer as an external hdd. in some cases even though your operating system is corrupt you can still access your data if it is used as an additional hdd on a separate pc. You dont neccesarily need the hotswap device but it is the easiest solution. The alternate is to plug your hdd into another pc as an additional hdd and you can access it just as you would a thumb drive or a secondary partition

Dear,
there are some software, either in market or u can download from sites.
but they works only if u just formatted your drive and then i became normal.
if u have a fully corrupted driver either having physical or logical bad sector then it seems to be difficult ot get back your data.
i had a software that can cure the logical bad sector in drive but unfortunatly i lost that due to some reasons.
you can try it on sites name as "LLF" (Low Level Formation).
it is very small dos based software that can do its work.
it either cure your bad sector or will permanatly fix . after that no data will be written or view from that part of hard.

regards,

dont forget to rate it, hope u understand the matter

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 If the drivers to your hard drive controller are outdated, incorrect, or corrupted then the STOP 0x0000007B error will likely occur.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

Missing or corrupted system 32 wont install off windows xp disk


try going to the bios and change the boot sequence for hard drive to cd
put the copy of xp in the external hard drive and reboot the computer
when it powers up it should boot up off the external hard drive
if that works go to computer --device manager and find recovery section
you may also go restore to a previous date and try for a fix from there
go google and get to microsoft and find that file download for xp and install it
if all that works shut the computer down and reboot back to bios and change back to reboot from hard drive
remove the disc from the external hard drive

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

My computer is stuck on bluescreen stop message 0x0000007B and says INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. I have 3 RAM chips installed. I removed them all and installed each one separately in slot one and rebooted...


This is typically unrelated to the RAM. STOP 0x7B means that the OS can't find the Windows partition on the hard disk, either due to driver or other issues. In most cases with XP that I've seen, the problem is with the boot.ini file pointing to the wrong partition. If you've recently worked with the hard drive(s), or added a new hard drive, make sure they were plugged back into the same plug on the same cable, as the master/slave detection is usually automatic, and having a different drive plugged into the same place on a cable that the system drive was originally can cause this problem.

STOP 0x00000024, 0X0000024, 0X24 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM = this stop error means that your NTFS file system is corrupt and this is practically impossible to fix - absolutely everything on your hard disk is trashed. The only reliable way to fix that is to reinstall Windows.

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.

Error while trying to install windows xp Stop: 0x0000007B on a dell Optiplex sx270


The most popular Blue Screen of Death error in Windows is the STOP 0x0000007B error, sometimes called the 0x7b error or the "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD.
This BSOD (which is actually the common name for a STOP Error) could mean that there's a serious hardware problem with a hard drive controller, a driver issue, or even a boot sector virus.
In your case though, this is most likely one of 4 capacitors that are known to blow out on any SX270. Slide the bar at the back of your PC to the remove cover side and look inside for swollen caps. Remove the fans and cpu cover as well and check around there. Replace any bad ones you can find with old caps borrowed from an old motherboard if you have one, or new ones from any decent electronics parts warehouse. This fix has worked for me on every SX270 I have ever had.
