Bad Hard Drive? BSOD 0x0000007b

Q: Bad Hard Drive? BSOD 0x0000007b

Background... my idiot ex-bf hooked up an antique power surge protector to my Dell Studio XPS running Windows 7. The surge protector caused my computer to do a few cold shut downs and after one of these it came back with a black screen displaying this error message... NOTICE - Hard Drive SELF MONITORING SYSTEM has reported that a parameter has exceeded its normal operating range. Dell recommends that you back up your data regularly. A parameter out of range may or may not indicate a potential hard drive problem.
Press F2 to resume

Pressing F2 took me to a blue screen that appeared to have options for BIOS(I am not very educated in these things). If I hit ESC, then confirmed that I wanted to Escape by hitting F10, it would boot up normally and I could use my computer with no problems. So this has been my procedure for the last 6 months or so. Yesterday I do a warm shut down and it comes back up with the usual error message, but this time after hitting ESC and F10, it took me to a BSOD. I tried Start Up Repair which said it could not fix the problem. The specific error message is 0x0000007b.

Trying to repair from my Windows install disk gives me this error...
Start Up Repair Error
problem event name: startuprepair offline
problem signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
problem signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
3: unknown
4: 209
5: AutoFailover
6:1
7: Baddisk

Attempting to run Check Disk gives this error...
The type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected

I was ready to chalk it up to a bad hard drive and start saving up for a new one, but then something else off began happening. It seems like after a certain amount of time, my monitor says it is going to sleep and then proceeds to do so. The odd thing is that it won't wake up. Says No VGA Signal. Also, it goes to sleep regardless if the mouse if moving or not. I tested that out by leaving the mouse in my daughter's swing so it was constantly moving, and monitor was asleep 10 minutes later. Only way to get the monitor to turn on without shutting back off after VGA error is to reboot the computer. I was going to try running some hard drive repair programs on Knoppix, but am unable to do so because of the monitor going to sleep.

Is this likely a bad hard drive problem or could it be something else? Thanks in advance.
For help with Windows 7 BSODs, follow these steps, create a new thread in the Crashes and Debugging forum, and add your dump files zip as an attachment. I did read that post, but can't get Windows to load up at all, so am unable to retrieve any dump files.

Preferred Solution: Bad Hard Drive? BSOD 0x0000007b

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello!

I have recently built a brand new PC from the ground up, I am now at the point of installing a new OS, in this instance Windows XP Pro SP3. I was able to format and install the OS when booting from the disc, then it was fine booting by itself to complete the installation, then finally trying to boot up windows to use and i get the blue screen of death with the error message:

STOP: 0x0000007B (0xBACC3524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I tried placing the hard drive in a separate working PC that was already running Windows XP and booting it there, same problem, I then booted the other PC normally with the new hard drive as a secondary, booted fine, then ran error checking and chkdsk, all turned out fine apparently. As the hard drive is new I doubt it is nearing the end of its life like other people have written. I have also tried reformatting it using the latest stable version of GParted Live CD yet the problem remains. Please help me, it would be a shame to see the computer null when I'm so close to completing it.

When I tried to resume Windows from Hibernation this morning, I got a BSOD with 0x000000E4. Upon trying to restart, I got a different BSOD with 0x0000007B stop code. I have attached pictures of the Blue Screens and the SF files. Thank you for any assistance you can provide. Surf1000

A:Restarting from hibernation get BSOD 0x000000E4 and BSOD 0x0000007B

These two BSODs are pointing to two totally different things. A stop 0xE4 is memory related issue and a stop 0x7B is a storage related issue.

Do three bootable tests stated as below:

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

► Test the HDD using Seatools for DOS.

► Scan the system for possible virus infection with Windows Defender Offline

Also, update the WiFi network driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/

Let us know the results.

I've never gotten this error when installing any version of Windows on a clean hard disk and I hope there is a solution as, otherwise, it's a bad board. This system originally came as a Dell factory-downgraded Windows XP installation (from Vista).

Here's the system.

I've swapped the hard disk, memory, DVD drive, video card, power supply and even tried installing XP, Vista and 7, all resulting in the same 07B stop error. There are no add-in cards aside from the video.

Any suggestions?
 

A:STOP 0x0000007B on installing XP on Clean Hard Disk

From what i read about that error its caused by a hard drive problem of some sort or if you are going from say vista back to xp the setting in the BIOS has to be either ATA,SATA, IDE, or compatability to install and run xp. AHCI is for vista and windows 7.

Hi all,

I am having problems with my Thinkpad T500!First off It's been having problems installing the most basic of drivers.

I went to the Lenovo site and downloaded all the most up to date drivers. On doing this and installing some updates from Lenovo it has caused me real problems! My laptop gets to the windows screen just before the log on prompt it then freezes and gives be a BSOD message then reboots. I then get the repair windows option or just boot to windows option, I tired the repair and it doesn't seem to work. I've tried a chkdsk /f chkdsk /r and that reports no problems. I then tried the SFC/ SCANNOW command and it gets to 30% and says windows could not start the repair service! The only way I can get back to Windows is via the F8 option then using last know good configuration I've used this option to get back to Windows and get the SF Diagnostic tool and get the dumps.

I am running Windows 7 Professional 64bit OEM Edition. I have no recovery CD as this as it came preloaded on the laptop. I hope I am not up the creek without a paddle on this!

Hi, OK, I guess I should have waited for an answer to my MBR question of a few hours back. I didn't and instead after doing some searching here decided to download MBRFix.

I ran it on a spare computer with the failing (but still booting) HD in a USB enclosure and copied the MBR. I then swapped in the original non-booting Vista (which the failing HD was an image of) and used MBRFix to restore the MBR. Now I get the BSOD.

I really do not want to have to do a clean install as I have been remiss with backing up.

The joke is the BSOD says,
"Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption"
"STOP: 0x0000007B (0x80E03BA0,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000"

How can I run chkdsk if I can't get to the command prompt?

Can anyone please assist on where to go from here?

2) Restart the system, OS does not boot.
3) Startup Repair tool solve the problem

A:BSOD 0x0000007b

Hello Shiho, welcome to SF!

A question to see if I understand correctly...
You FIRST bought it with operating system??? It is not clear. I'm guessing you did not buy it with windows8 on it

You then installed W7 which gave problems?
And then Windows8, which is what you are using now??

As the upload of info is very limited it is hard to say what to do next.
From that upload, it is clear that you miss multiple device drivers and need to do a checkdisk on your HDD.

But IF I understand your story correctly... I'd do a clean install.

I am experiencing a BSOD on a Dell Inspiron 1520. All attempts to boot to SAFE mode also result in a Blue Screen
I ran MEMTEST and all of the memory appears to be OK.
I cannot get to the hard disk to retrieve any additional error information.

A few weeks ago this PC was infected with the "Internet Security 2010" virus, which I cleaned up. Not sure what has transpired since then. This is a friend's PC and I know she uses it for some kind of work.

First Blue Screen is 0x0000007B (0xBA4CB524, 0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
Other Blue Screen codes are 0x0000007E (0XC0000001D, 0X8053600C, 0XBA4CB3C8, 0XBA4CB0B4)

I'm looking for some guidance - should I run a fixmbr, or could this be something else ? I can't get to the hard disk to back it up, but it's still accessible when I use my XP CD (built from a different PC with XP3 slipstreamed). I don't want to do a repair install and risk losing her data files. I'm still in a learning mode with this.

I work in an enterprise environment and have come across three different machines in the last few weeks with this BSOD error (0x0000007b; 0xf78ca524...)

One on a desktop (hp/compaq dc7100, 60GB sata drive, 2GB RAM, XP sp2) another on a laptop (hp/compaq 6910p, 80GB sata drive, 2GB RAM, XP sp2).

Drives are encrypted with SafeBoot 4.2 and repairing the installation is not an option. I can boot to a pre-windows environment and copy files from the drive. However, I can't boot to windows either regular or Safe Mode. Error comes up both times. I've run checkdisk which didn't find any errors.

I'm just wondering if there are any other options beyond building a new drive. My search results came up with virus, driver, and drive controller for possible causes. The drives have been in the system for at least a year, no new drive or driver so my only thought is virus but I'm not even sure which one or how to scan outside of windows (limited tools available).

This is just a last gasp, reaching for straws, shot in the dark to see if anyone has any brilliant insights (or humorous comments). Thanks...

So i get YET ANOTHER Win XP PRO, boot it up and when it says "Loading Windows" on the bottom of the screen a second later i get the 0x0000007B BSoD error AGAIN. Ive tried a couple other win XP cds, and none of them let me go past the "loading windows" thing.

Now alot of you are gonna say "Google it" or "Search" well i did, ive been googling and reading forums and trying to fix this for the past week, and no luck at all.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Take out RAM module and clean contacts with rubber and DIMM slots with brush...
If you have more then one stick of RAM, test it separatelly...

I am getting a Blue Screen with the above error message every time I power up my computer. I installed an upgrade to Bestcrypt 8. When I rebooted after the install, I got the BSODs, in all modes (safe, last known good, etc).

The BSOD occurs within a second or so of the Windows Logo appearing on the screen. Not long enough to start generating a bootlog. Always the same error codes.

I'm running XP Pro SP2. My single 1TB hard drive holds two XP partitions, with fairly different software and setup configurations. I can still boot into the other partition, which to my mind rules out basic hardware problems.

Furthermore, I cunningy (and painstakingly) retrieved the default, SAM, SECURITY, software, and system files from the second partition, and used UBCD4Win to copy them to the inaccessible first partition. Voila, I could boot-up to the first partition again.

But the problem is that the configurations are so different that the mismatched registry is not much use. Of course, I still have copies of the original registry files.

So the evidence suggests to me that the problem is a rogue registry entry, rather than a corrupt driver file.

One course of action I've tried so far is as follows:

I booted to the first partition, with the mismatched (but sorta working) registry. Then I installed BC8 and took a snapshot of the registry using Advanced Registry Monitor. Then I uninstalled BC8 again (the reboot produced no problems this time), and took another snapshot. Most of t... Read more

Hi there.

So recently, a friend of mine had their laptop fail to load their Windows XP operating system earlier today. They found that they had a blue screen error appear. After some basic rigorous checks, whilst testing Safe mode, System Restore, Last known good configuration and Safe mode with Networking, all of these different options ended up with the same blue screen error appearing before windows had a chance to do anything. System restore, however, did briefly show it's general system restore background before ending up in the blue screen situation again. We've looked around the internet pretty well, and we can't find much on our actual issue. However, we do have information on the bluescreen of death error.

We think the cause is a result of my friend being notorious for closing a laptop down by holding the power button, I personally believe that she may of corrupted a critical system file whilst an installation was occuring on her computer.

I am experiencing a BSOD on a Dell Inspiron 1520. All attempts to boot to SAFE mode also result in a Blue Screen
I ran MEMTEST and all of the memory appears to be OK.
I cannot get to the hard disk to retrieve any additional error information.

A few weeks ago this PC was infected with the "Internet Security 2010" virus, which I cleaned up. Not sure what has transpired since then. This is a friend's PC and I know she uses it for some kind of work.

The original BSOD was 0x0000007E (0XC0000001D, 0X8053600C, 0XBA4CB3C8, 0XBA4CB0B4)
First Blue Screen is 0x0000007B (0xBA4CB524, 0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

I'm looking for some guidance - should I run a fixmbr, or could this be something else ? I can't get to the hard disk to back it up, but it's still accessible when I use my XP CD (built from a different PC with XP3 slipstreamed). I don't want to do a repair install and risk losing her data files. I'm still in a learning mode with this.

I have had someone recommend the ERD Commander. From within ERD, I have tried system restore to 3 different restore points with the same BSOD (0x0000007B)

Thank you for your help.

Well I got this error yesterday and I will try to explain it to you guys. So yesterday I was messing around with the computer when It started going very very slow. Nothing seemed unusual in the processes list so I did an avg 8 scan. Nothing was noticed by avg so I decided it was time for a reformat. So I got my windows xp boot disk that came with the comp. Turned off the computer and Started the cd. I deleted everything off of my 2 hard drives. Then I installed windows on my first hard drive. I set it to a normal ntfs format and it installs. after about half way the computer restarts and then it asks to put in computer name and the time and date and then continues installing. Then it does another reboot and as soon as it gets to windows sign it goes to the bsod. Took out the disk and tried that does not work, tried safe mode in all configs and that does not work either. Its stops at mup i think. What should I do? This computer is not brand new,, and I have reformatted it many times. WhAT WENT WRONG?

A:BSOD 0X0000007B How is this possible on my computer? and how do i fix it?

I would try these steps in this order: (Try booting after every step)

- Reset BIOS to defaults.
- Remove any non-stock hardware such as user-added video and storage devices.
- Unplug all drives (from SATA/IDE cable) EXCEPT the master hard drive containing Windows.

Are either of your hard disks making any strange sounds?

It is not possible to boot into Safe Mode or any of the other 10 available modes.

Since I can't boot into Windows at all, I am unable to run the SF System Info Tool and the SF Diagnostic Tool. No new dump files are created by the SF How to Configure Windows to Create a Dump File when you get a Blue Screen of Death.

No help seems to be achieved from Startup Repair (1-on system, 2-OS disc, 3-Repair Disc), System Restore, Memory Diagnostics, Bios reset, Dell Drivers and Utilities DVD scan, CHKDSK, SFC, BOOTREC, BOOTSECT and other commands - maybe they weren't used exactly as required.

Hi,

Do you still have windows installed in any of your HDD partitions?

If the Disc is Dynamic ... how many partitions are there? A dynamic cannot boot windows.

Download Partition Wizard bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD. Boot into it following these instructions. Then when you are on the GUI of the PW boot CD, take a camera snap of the screen (try to make the snap clear, readable) and upload that picture for us.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 and am experiencing a problem with re-installing Windows XP Pro. After completing the initial install and setup routine, the PC re-boots to start Windows for the first time I get a BSOD with the following message:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

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.

When I select the driver on the floppy disk, the windows setup routine attempts to run windows and the BSOD appears.

That's a duzey. Could be a boot sector virus, could be a corrupted boot sector... or a corrupted boot file.
 
run 'chkdsk /f' from the command prompt in safemode. then 'chkdsk /r'
 
That will take a while, but might get you on your feet again.

I also forgot to mention that whenever i turn the computer on, around 50% of the time the power light stays orange, and around 50% of the time it turns green and i see the mobo loading screen on the monitor.

Also around 50% of the time when i boot, it just says "Floppy diskette seek failure" and doesn't let me load from the XP installation disk at all.

This is windows XP by the way.

Well; Just a fyi this is more of windows 7 help forum(s) then xp; But!; we can still help(hopefully). It sounds like something got corrupted either in the install process or the finalizing of windows xp installation. Try booting off the zp disk if you have it and see if it will let you do a repair of computer from the disk. If you can that may resolve the issue by repairing any corrupt files etc. if that does not work you may have to do a complete re-format of the hard drive and complete reinstall of the operating system.

I then plugged the hard drive back into the laptop and used system recovery to bring it back to factory settings.

So I decided today I wanted to install a SSD into my system and install a copy of windows on it (It is the OCZ Agility 3 60gb). Anyways I format the drive correctly in order to install windows onto it. I insert the disc and start installing windows onto it from original boot drive (I think that was a mistake). So I leave for 10 minutes or so and a come back to a standard BSOD with the error 0x0000007B (0x80786B58, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) so I reboot but every time it started the "Starting Windows" screen it BSODed with the same error. So I assume it must be something to do with the SSD drive, so I removed it but it still BSODed with the same error. I go on the internet looking for solutions, but non of them worked. Then I noticed it was trying to boot into a partition called Windows Setup Rollback, with that information I open up the boot manager with F8 and press Esc then I selected Windows 7, still didn't work so I used startup repair on it, but now it BSOD's on boot with error 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A97E8 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034 0x0000000000 0x0000000000).

I can see the files on the hard drive when mounting it as an external drive to my laptop. I tried Windows XP CD too, but the only choice is to install windows XP that overwrites my existing folders. I would rather keep the applications I have installed in the drive, so I haven't tried this option.
 
What else can I do? Thanks!

A:Windows XP can't boot: BSOD 0x0000007B

It may be possible to get the computer to boot by changing AHCI mode in BIOS to IDE mode. STOP: 0x0000007B can be a mass storage driver problem. If this does not solve the problem, do you have another XP computer?

Hello to all fellows here,I?m Ron from Germany and I studied a former case regarding this BSOD in this forum (raised by robert, closed by elise025)It would be highly appreciated if I get some help because this BSOD really sucks.. spending a couple of days to find a solution, without success.A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers.

A:BSOD *** STOP: 0X0000007B ,new topic

Me again,

poor that there were no answers, but I solved it anyway.

After a couple of retries with chckmbr.exe which says : no valid mbr record found
I tried to create one with it but it failed.

Then I reboot with my Dell Win Xp CD, go to R for repair and enterd
fixmbr at the windows command prompt.
A new mbr was created successfully, it says..
won??t believe that..
so I run fixboot..

and

REBOOT WAS SUCCESSFUL

Hoorahh!!

Happy now..

STOP 0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICEUsual causes: Hard drive, File system, Boot sequence errors, Device driver, Virus infection (in particular check the MBR)In your case you report a Stop: 0x0000007B (, 0xC000000D, , ) error in which the value C000000D = STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETERThis is most likely the result of partition table &/or boot file corruption (based on previous experience) ... most often caused by malware.What was happening on the system prior to this problem developing?Were you aware of any possible malware infection on the system before this problem arose?
Were you attempting to remove malware when the system became unbootable?Have you had to deal with malware on the system recently?If not malware, was there any other issue evident with the system or were you doing anything unusual that may have inadvertently caused this problem?

Hello, so yesterday I decided to upgrade my computer with a new motherboard/cpu.
But I wanted to keep the old hard drive since I have all my files there, and everything was going smoothly until I actually tried to boot it.

When I boot Windows 7 it gives me this bluescreen error:

Code:
STOP 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)
I have tried to reinstall windows on another clean hard drive, but doesn't want to boot that either.

Specs:

Power supply: The one I had in my old HP Pavillion, 460w
Motherboard: Asus M4A88T-V EVO
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 200GB 7200 ST3200822AS
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 460 1gb


Windows 7 Ultimate x64 full retail
The hardware is from 2010 or so.
The age of the os installation is 2011.

If you need more information just tell me.

So, you are saying, that besides the drive you originally had installed Windows on, you tried do a clean install on another drive and it would not work as well? If that is the case, are you getting the same STOP code?

I managed to fix it.

I was following the instructions from this link:

Step 3 solved it for me, which means the registry was corrupted or damaged.

Hello,
I have a PC with Windows 7 64 OS as my only OS on a bitlocker encrypted SSD for a while now and suddenly, it seems out of nowhere, I am getting 0x0000007B BSOD erros when booting the OS. I did not do any hardware and software changes (including
updates) prior to this BSOD showing up. I have upgraded my motherboard two months ago (including correctly updated drivers), but all worked flawlessly since then, so that is probably not the cause. I have also been tweaking around with network drivers recently,
but again, that does not seem like it would give a BSOD (even in safe-boot without networking).

The full error code is 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A97E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000).
Apart from not being able to boot into the OS using normal boot, I get the same BSOD with the safe-boot option also so only option for not getting a BSOD is a) using System Recovery tool (from DVD) or b) booting from USB with linux-based tools/distros (including
GParted).

So far, I have tried without success the following:

Startup Repair using Win DVD,
Checking AHCI was not changed to IDE/RAID in BIOS, Replacing the SATA cable and changing the SATA port (+ removing all other non-OS harddisks)chkdsk /f :C returns "no problems" found.Bootrec.exe /FixMbr and Bootrec.exe /FixBoot still return "Total identified Windows installations: 0" with /ScanOs

Hello.
Getting a BSOD on startup.
Error code in full:
0x0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009497E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

My system setup:
Crucial m4 256GB is for Windows and a few programs/games
WD 1TB Black is for media, games and other stuff that I don't want loading like it's on speed.

Gigabyte x68x UD4-B3.
Corsair 1600MHz RAM, 16GB (4x4 GB). <- I did have some BSOD's, that seem to relate to memory, but this specific issue I think is not related to it.

Initially, when booting up, Windows wanted to do a startup repair, I didn't notice any BSOD before this when booting. I let it do it's thing. I come back and I see the BSOD and it reboots loop. So I tried a few of my own things. Chkdsk and the like, to no avail.
I did stop the infinite loops by forcing a disable on BSOD rebooting stuff.

I also tried Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery. No luck.
I did a Google. Some things point to my SSD. Others aren't exactly related.
Using Bootrec.exe /RebuildBCD it doesn't find any Windows installations. Yet on the C: drive, I see all of the usual Windows folders like System32 and such.

Startup repair also can't fix. Here's the full result (after it trying to do it twice and apparently "fixing" things.

I've overclocked my pc to 4.5GHz

In the BIOS I've made the following changes:

At first AHCI gave me problem booting, although I Enabled Device Driver in Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci,
but also had to Enable Device Driver under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV to be able to Run SSD true speed.

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

I want start of by apologizing for my lack of knowledge regarding computers. This is also the first time i?m using a forum like this so please forgive me and redirect this thread if it is misplaced. It could be a hardware problem.

The problem i?m having is that when i try to boot my computer and windows is starting i get BSOD. I get the error message 0x0000007B. The text is only on the screen for a fraction of a second before the computer restarts and i had to record and watch it frame by frame to manage to read it. I was using the computer yesterday night and it was running just fine. I did download Eclipse to my computer that night but i cannot think about anything else. Here is a link to the site from where i downloaded http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/indigo/SR1/eclipse-jee-indigo-SR1-win32-x86_64.zip.
However when i started my computer this morning the problems started. The computer had been turned off during the night.

To try and solve it myself i have done nothing but restart the computer, resetting to default settings in BIOS, tried running with last known working configurations. I have also tried turning of the computer and unplugg and then replugg my hard drives. I have noticed no change with any of these actions. I have not run anything like combofix.

I have a home built computer. I use a SSD drive as a cash memory.
