Hey everyone,

I have a Vista desktop that I built customly. For the past two years it's been running fine but today I got a BSOD. After the Vista loading bar, it flashes to this screen very briefly, and then reboots. This cycle continues.

I have this error on the screen:

STOP 0x0000007e (0xc0000006, 0x889F6510, 0x8DF9E7B4, 0x8DF9E7B0)

Anyone know what I can do? Because I can't even boot into safe mode without this happening...

No, I don't have a Vista DVD. I used the OEM DVD to install Vista. Any advice on what I should do?

If you have Vista DVD...

If you don't have Vista DVD...

1. Create Vista Recovery Disc.

Option 1:

Option 2:
Download Vista Recovery Disc iso image: http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/
Burn it to CD, or DVD: http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/G/Burning+ISO+Images+to+a+CD+or+DVD

2. Boot from created disk.
At first screen click on Repair your computer:

This will bring you to a new screen where the repair process will look for all Windows Vista installations on your computer. When done you will be presented with the System Recovery Options dialog box:

After this, it will present you with a list of options including startup repair, system restore and command prompt:

Try System Restore, first.
If that doesn't work, try Startup Repair.

I tried the above, neither worked. When I tried Startup Repair, it failed, and same with System Restore.

If you have more than one RAM stick installed, try to start the computer with one stick at a time.
