Hi bleeping computers, i'm not good at introductions, so ill get straight to the point.
Yesterday, I was on my computer, booting it up, and I decided to get rid of AVG as it is annoying me out of my mind‚So, i uninstalled AVG from the directory that it was installed, and got rid of it. I then decided that I would try to fix the a safemode startup issue that I had.
So I went into the "msconfig" and went to the BOOT.INI tab. I selected startup safemode or what it was, and it asked for a restart.
I restarted the machine, and whoops, what do you know, i got a BSOD. Now, I wasn't worried, so I just restarted the computer. Whoops, again...And again, and again and again.
The error message was this *** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78BE524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).
I cannot boot from the operating system, safe mode, or anything else. I can only access the system controls i think it is? I can not even enter debugging mode.

Ill post whats up;
STPD.sys. Something to do with daemon tools.
*** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78BE524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) the reason it wont let me load up.


EDIT;

I have tried booting from CD. This wont work, as it says (device not found).




Help.
Please and Thankyou's in advance,
0isin.

This error means that the system isn't able to access your boot device. There are several reasons for this.

The first thing (IMO) would be to run a bootable diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive. Here's a topic with links to the most common one's: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/

Post back with the results of the test and we can move on from there.

If you can get to the recovery console run CHKDSK /R. If that doesn't work run FIXBOOT and/or FIXMBR from the recovery console. You may have to run recovery console from the xp cd if you don't have it installed.

Thanks guys.
I just got a new hard drive - Seagate 500gb and popped it into the computer, and you know what? It still wont work, i still get the same error code; *** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78BE524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

Currently trying what was suggested, be back soon.


EDIT;
I CANNOT EVEN INSTALL WINDOWS. it looks at the cd, reads it all, does its stuff, then when it says, booting setup, it goes to the error message. this sucks.

So i think i now what happened, I made it so that it would boot into safe mode, with the MSCONFIG/boot.ini option. It always wants to start in safe mode, but it cant, so its stuck in a repetitive cycle, now what?

Can you try this?

Drain your CSMOS?

Either by changing the Jumpers located by the Battery, or remove the Battery.

It sounds like an Upper Memory Virus, quite Common!

Edit. only that can affect a new HDD.

That would be Great if his Computer could Read the Disk?

It seems it won't?

I doubt if his HDD is also being Read?

New HDD? Same Problem?

Edit, Simple Solution, Drain the Upper Memory, ie, CSMOS, it is an Old Trick being used again now!

Basically, Its weird, cause I though that putting a new HDD in, and trying to install the operating system would work, but it doesnt seem to want to.
Thanks for your help.

EDIT;
Why does my computer not read the disc through the CD drive? Instead, i have to put in a usb cd drive. Whats up with that?

Happy to Guide you through, Mate!

Draining the CSMOS is no Big Deal
