I have a laptop that was working normally until one day I turned it on and got a BSOD. The error said:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information:

*** STOP : 0x0000007B (OxF78D2524, 0xc0000034, 0xc0000000, 0x0000000)

I bought a new hard drive and installed it into the laptop. I moved the old hard drive into an enclosure. I reinstalled the OS (Windows XP Home) and it worked properly for a day. I plugged the old hard drive (now an external hard drive)into the laptop to confirm I was able to access the data on it. The hard drive worked properly, (it autoplayed as normal)but I did not access any files or run any programs. This morning, I got the exact same BSOD. I am unsure if I moved a virus from my old hard drive to the new one, but I do not believe that is the issue. For some reason, I suspect it is a hardware issue. Does anyone have any insight they could give me? Any and all information would be appreciated.

<<Check for viruses on your computer.>>

I see no mention...that you actually followed this suggestion at all.

Generic info on 7B STOP errors, http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm :

"0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
Windows lost access to the system partition or boot volume during the startup process. Typical causes: Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware, or a virus."
