My computer had gotten the blue screen every so often but I would restart and all would be ok! This could be from something I did when reinstalling a year ago?
Today when it starts it goes straight to the safemode screen and no matter which one I pick (safemode,normal,last known config) it crashes and restarts!
I changed the restart feature so I could write down the blue screen error here... stop: 0x0000007b (0xf79e5524,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000
I went into the bios (i guess because I am kinda new at this) and did a hard drive test (or whatever test it let me do) and all came out ok!
I had reinstalled with xp professional disc about a year ago due to hard drive failure. That is what the computer is suppose to run originally! I used a larger hard drive then what came with it originally!
Here is a link to the problems I had when I re-installed last time over a year ago. I ended up using a windows xp professional disc after trying the recovery disc that microsoft sent me because they were for Media center edition and this had xp professional on it before!My link
