When loading Windows and yet to reach my desktop, I get this error on the blue screen.
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 to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.
If problems contine, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory optiosn such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x00000074 (0x000000003, 0x000000002, 0x80088000, 0xc000014c)
I had been running the computer all day yesterday and had no problems. I woke up this morning and turned it on and it counted my RAM and then it froze their. It never said Detecting IDE drives... So I restarted and it got past that but then I got this error message when loading Windows. I installed a scanner which had worked in the past and several basic Software Applications (Winzip, Kazaa). I tried following the blue screen instructions in the message. I disable caching in BIOS memory and shadowing was already disabled. I also tried going into Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration but it would not let me get in, no matter what I keep getting this message when loading Windows.
Now, after I wrote all of this down with pen and pencil to go downstairs and e-mail you, I figured I give it one more try. I powered off the computer and powered on and it get to the second Windows loading screen (it usually froze on the first), this is the screen witht he Windows XP logo and I got a new blue screen error message. It had the same instructions on how to fix it but here is some of the different things I saw:
0X0000000A (0xFFBDFC58, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x80509120)
Beginning dump of physical memory.
It counted to 100 and then restarted. Also, I noticed this yesterday but it went off the screen too fast to read it and I thought nothing of it because the computer was working. But, I took a closer look and under Detecting IDE drives... and then it lists the drives, it says this:
Primary IDE channel no 80 conductor cable installed.
Now this could have something to do with the blue screens I am getting and I have gotten these in the past. When I was using Windows 2k, I rememeber my computer would restart for no reason and I would check the log and it said Physical Memory Dump. Also, I had gotten many of those screens when loading Windows in the past but they usually went away when I restarted. Do you have any idea what is wrong?
