I am sometimes getting stop error 0x0000007E. I get around the problem by starting up using F8 to Advanced startup options and selecting last know good configuration.

How do I eliminate the stop message? I am running windows xp home edition. Is there a patch? I have never installed sp2.

The full message I get reads as follows:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to see if you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check your hardware vendor for any bios updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

If you need to use safe mode to disable components press F8 to select advanced startup options and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xCoooooo5, 0x8059360D, 0xF8C8694C, 0xF8C8664C)

Here's a link to the STOP error: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x7e

As you can see, there's plenty of causes for this error. As such, I'd recommend searching your hard drive for files ending in *.dmp or *.mdmp. When you find them, follow the instructions at this link to perform an analysis of the dump file: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246

Post the results back here and we'll see if we can figger out what's causing it.

I have never installed sp2.


There are many causes for an 7e stop, usually it hardware/driver related. As usasma has said, to see the possible cause, you need to inspect the minidump file.
Graphics card driver conflicts are common and it may be worth updating these. I would certainly recommend updating to SP2 - providing you are certain your computer is free of malware.
