I recently had cleaned my windows XP (sp2) pc (Abit Ic7G intel P4 2.4ghz) using the following guide (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=139313
) as it was hanging after logging in.
After I fixed that problem and then went through this guide (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=44525
) to keep my pc free from rubbish. Still booting fine so I made a restore point.
Next I Installed the XP updates/patches...which I hadn't done for a while. After installing 70 odd updates/patches (including sp3) the machine rebooted only to come back with a BSOD with the following error:
*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x805ED9A7, 0xF78C93B0, 0xF78C90AC)
I then tried booting in to safe mode and it produced the same BSOD...it came up after or during loading 'agp440.sys.
So I googled the fault an tried the following fixes (note: I can only get in to the recovery console now from boot off my windows CD)
1. Turned off the agp440.sys service from loading (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324764
2. Removed some suspect patches: (http://en.community.dell.com/forums/p/19321239/19663986.aspx
KB977165 (note: this wasn't installed on my machine but does seem to cause a the same error)
3. Removed sp3 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950249
4. copied a old system restore point...which I made before downloading the updates (http://www.myfixes.com/articles/system
Now I'm stuck and its still producing the same fault...please help.
