My Dell 8200 with Windows XP SP3 has a stop error 0x0000007E and a FLTMGR.SYS address F78512B2 error. After trying to reboot using the F8 key I can select Safe Mode but during the reboot it just gives me the BSOD mentioned above.
I got to this point, when I had another stop error 0x0000005? I can't quite remember the last byte. This occurred at somepoint during the night and the next morning the system was sitting at the BSOD. I could not boot from Safe Mode either and so I booted from my original XP install disk and selected Repair OS. Once this was done, I tried to reboot off of the HD and the 0x0000007E message with the FLTMGR.SYS message was thrown.
What do I do now? Your advice and guidance will be greatly appreciated.
I suspect that I have some sort of corruption probably due to a virus. I recently switched from Mcafee to Spyware Doctor and some viruses were found and supposedly cleaned. Things seem to be running fine for a few days and then the BOSD showed up.
