As the topic title states, I can't seem to access my desktop. When I boot up the computer it gets as far as the Windows XP splash screen, sits there for a couple seconds loading, and then quickly flashes a blue screen before rebooting. This happens constantly. I can, however, boot into safe mode just fine. I'm not sure if this is relevant but I recently replaced the power supply in this computer.
I disabled "automatic restart on system error" so I could read the blue screen. Here's most of what it said:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters."
*** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF46FE03E, 0XF78E256C, 0XF78E2268) ***
So it seems there is no driver being identified. Here's what I've tried:
- I've tried using the windows xp cd to repair the system. The repair completed but I'm still experiencing the same issue.
- I've removed/swapped my ram sticks to try and see if it was faulty ram. Ram doesn't seem to be having problems.
- I placed the old power supply back in and have removed my video card (radeon 3870) from the mobo, now using on board video. Still same issue.
- I'm now in the Recovery Console and performed the chkdsk /r command (waiting to see if this works)
Any help/suggestions you guys could provide would be much appreciated. I've been at this god forsaken thing all day lol.
Thanks in advance.
Edit #1: Btw, I'm running SP2
Edit #2: chkdsk /r did nothing. Still the same issue.
Edit #3: Performed a housecall free scan - Found no malicious items.
Edit #4: Performed Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware quickscans - Found nothing in Malwarebytes and about 6 tracking cookies in SuperAntispyware (logs available upon request).
