Windows setup error.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Whenever I try to install windows XP it loads everything it needs to load, then it says "Starting windows" so you would think its done, but instead I get this error "A problem has been found and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer." (Stop: 0x000007B).

I have one SATA HDD in this PC and it was detected in the BIOS, I tried taking out every device I didnt need to run the PC to see if one of them was causing the problem but I get the same error everytime. Does this mean the HDD is damaged in some way or could it be the windows XP CD?

I'm guessing the message is displayed on a blue screen?

If so:

Have you installed any new ram? if not just take them out and put them back in.

It is displayed on a blue screen, and there is only a 1GB stick of ram in it.

This is a brand new custom build, it has never had a OS on it before. The microsoft help page for this error does not help me, since I cant run windows.

If my video card is causing this problem is there anything I can switch on my BIOS that would fix it?

I switched my GPU to another PCIe slot. At first it was getting a boot error but now it went to the windows setup...the exact same error came up.

That was the only thing I could do from that list in the link you gave me...

Try swapping another HDD and try. The HDD can be faulty. When you get errors installing Windows, it's most likely a bad HDD.

That was my original plan but I needed to make sure it wasnt just something I forgot to do.
