I have a HP 8665C Pavillion running Windows 2000 Pro. This computer has not been used in a while and as I was checking some of my CDs, the BSOD appeared with the following: *** STOP :0x0000007B (0xED41B84C, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

This now occurs on every start up. I have not changed or installed anything. I have looked several places on line to no avail. Help!

There are literally dozens of possible problems that product that generic error message. Here is a MS article that describes most of them.
How to troubleshoot "Stop 0x0000007B" error messages in Windows 2000.
Is there anymore information provided with the BSOD? Can you boot to Safe Mode?

I cannot get past the BSOD to boot up. The rest of the error message reads,

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 for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Refer to your Getting Started manual for more information on troubleshooting Stop errors."


I do not have a recovery disc or a repair disc. There was no Getting Started manual when I bought this unit in 2000 as it was a display model.

I am beginning to think I have a mother board issue. There are times that my monitor does not recieve a signal from the computer. Earlier today, I made a disc to start up in DOS and the computer did come up into DOS. Very shortly after start up, the computer froze and when I shut down and tried to restart, the monitor no longer recieved a signal. If I have no visual cues from the monitor, I am dead in the water. Any suggestions?

Couple of questions.
1) Does the computer boot you just are not receiving a signal to the monitor? Hard drive, CD, floppy, lights blink?
2) Do you have onboard or a stand alone video card? Do you have an old video card laying around?
