My other computer will not stop restarting at the desktop. I turn it on and it boots like normal then it gets to the desktop then 2 seconds later it restarts. I do not have this problem in safe mode. I scanned for spyware and viruses in safe mode and it didnt help me. I turned off auto restart after system failure and a message came up when it crashed again. That message stated that it had completed a physical memory dump and that there had been an error. IT IS THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH! NOOOOOOO!! *puts on grim reaper costume*

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. You are receiving the stop message 0x0000007E, or 0x7E for short. There can be many causes, both hardware related and software related. Think hard back to when this first started. Do you know the date?

What changes did you make to your computer just before this started? What software did you install? What program did you update? What hardware changes did you make to your computer?

If you can remember, change things back to what they were before. You could also attempt a System Restore back to the a date before the BSOD started appearing. Here is how:

If you can, start in safe mode with command prompt and type in:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

and press Enter.

Choose a date from before this problem began.
~~~~~~~~~~~

Following is a link that will take you to the Microsoft Knowledge Base concerning this particular Stop Message. You will need to read each individual article to at least find one that fits your situation. This will help you diagnose the stop message's cause, even though it will require quite a bit of research on your part:

Did system restore start and complete or ?

Did you have earlier dates highlighted in it?

Have you installed or removed any hardware or software in your computer recently including adding RAM or adding any program?

Have you had any updates recently? (before the probem began?)

You don't want to download SP2 just yet.

Your power off when the system was booting probably corrupted some files in the registry.

Start in safe mode and choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

If that works, run several online scans to make sure you are malware free.
Once you are sure of that you can download SP2.

If you install SP2 on a computer that is infected with malware you will have to reload Windows. Make sure it is clean first.
