Hello everyone,

I decided to clean the inside of my PC since it has been a while.
So I opened the case, removed the processor, replaced the thermal paste.
I removed all the dust on the fans.
Then I removed the graphic card to remove the dust on the fans.
I put back everything in place just like it was before and then booted it.
Everything seemed fine, but as the Windows 7 logo start appearing, the computer does a very brief blue screen and restart.
Then it asks me if I want to repair windows or if I want to boot it normaly.
When I try to boot it normally, it simply does another quick blue screen and reboots.
I tried the windows repair but after about 40 minutes, it says that it was unable to repair it.

Also, I stopped the computer from restarting when on the blue screen.
The error message says:
stop: 0x0000007b (0xfffff880009a97e8, 0xffffffffc0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

 

I'm going to sleep now..

I hope someone will be able to help me, i'll be back tomorrow.

That Code is an issue with the Hard Drive Controller - Driver.

 

Try also in Bios and ensure AHCI is selected and not IDE ,  if you did default it.

 

Double check all your cables and hardware Slots are clean.

 

Post back any results and then someone will assist you further.

 

* Was the PC working fine ? Prior to you cleaning it.

Wow okay. I wasted about 6 hours yesterday trying to fix the computer. All I had to do is to selected AHCI instead of IDE in the Bios.

This is weird because I didn't change it. I simply cleaned up the inside of the PC.

 

And yes, the PC was working fine prior to cleaning it.

 

 

Anyway thanks a whole lot man!

 

 

And i'm curious, can I ask you what changing IDE in AHCI did? I'd like to know if something similar happens.

It was an educated guess on my behalf with the AHCI setting, depending on your hard drive types and how the operating system was setup originally.

As no specs were provided in your original post , that was the conclusion i came to as a try or fix.

 

You can Google Ahci - Ide to give you some explanations , and can become technically involved in interpretations.

Although others may have more time to give you a full explanation and their expertise advice , when dealing with hard drive controllers , Bios , Mobo configurations etc.
