Im helping a friend fix his computer it is a Dell Diminsion 5100 with windows media center w/ sp2.

i have recently removed lots of virus and spyware from his computer. i used AVG and spybot, (both updated) and im pretty sure i have cleaned everything off, i have scanned it 3 times. but everytime i try to plug ethernet cable and his computer starts to acquire the network address or whatever i get a Stop 0x0000007e BSOD error. i looked into the error log and didnt generate any errors.-not for the BSOD error anyway. i reinstalled the network driver from the dell website. and ran a test using memtest 86. any help would be great, thanks.

Is the system properly updated for critical updates?

After your PC has been ravaged by several virus and spywares then they may leave some lasting system problems. You may find there is no other way to fix the problem than to reinstall XP, media centre, SP2 and all updates (if you have it all on a disk). Even Microsoft support doesn't always know whats going on in XPs 40 something million lines of code.

Anyway I wonder what would happen if you set up a different network connection and assigned IP addresses? Then it should skip aquiring network address.

Me, I would just uninstall the NIC (via Device Manager), let it reinstall and see if there is any change.

I might also do the On/Off routine with any router/cable modem, just to start anew.

ok i tried manually assigning the network address...didnt work, tried uninstalling and reinstalled the new nic drivers from dell support, updated the bios, updated the chipset. the only other thing is i need to get the new windows updates, but i dont know how to do that for sure since i cant get in the internet to use go to windows updates. i have tried using safe mode with networking and it does not work either. i think im going to try and put a different nic card in it.

For an 0x7e error, you should get back the name of the driver that caused it, either on the BSOD or in the !analyze results. That's normally the driver that needs to be replaced

sorry for the slow reply.

ok well i replaced the nic card and all seemed well...no problems, nothing. i finished the rest of the work on the computer, got all the windows updates and stuff now that i was able to get it on the internet. i probably had rebooted 10 times with no problems. i give the guy his computer back and first thing that happens is the bsod. im picking it back up from him in the morning? any more suggestions, im probably going to reinstall windows. except he has a dell. and i dont know if he as recovery disk or anything. i know i saw his windows CD key on the back of his machine. so. . . the new nic didnt work.

I found a temporary fix. If you do network boot when starting the computer, you won't get the blue screen but only for that session, and only sometimes. When you restart, u have to do it again. I guess it's useful if you need to download an update or something.

ya what i eventually did was reinstall windows. which is what i should have done in the first place...i thought it would be quicker to try and fix the problem. although i had to wait for dell to ship my the branded copy of xp media, it was not the oem version..but it works now thanks for the help
