    Here's some info. on 7B


    Stop 0x0000007B or INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

    The Stop 0x7B message indicates that Windows XP has lost access to the system partition or boot volume during the startup process. Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware typically causes stop 0x7B errors. Stop 0x7B errors could also indicate possible virus infection.

    The second parameter is very important because it can indicate whether the 0x7B Stop message was caused by file system issues or problems with storage hardware and drivers. Values of 0xC000034 or 0xC000000E typically indicate:

    • Disks or storage controllers that are failing, defective, or improperly configured.

    • Storage-related drivers or programs (tape management software, for example) that are not fully compatible with Windows XP Professional.

    Possible Resolutions:

    • During I/O system initialization, the controller or driver for the startup device (typically the hard disk) might have failed to initialize the necessary hardware. File system initialization might have failed because of disk or controller failure, or because the file system did not recognize the data on the boot device.

    • Repartitioning disks, adding new disks, or upgrading to a new disk controller might cause the information in the Boot.ini file, or Boot Manager, to become outdated. If this Stop message occurs after installing new disks to your system, edit the Boot.ini file or adjust the Boot Manager parameters to allow the system to start. If the error occurs after upgrading the disk controller, verify that the new hardware is functioning and correctly configured.

    • Verify that the system firmware and disk controller BIOS settings are correct and that the storage device was properly installed. If you are unsure, consult your computer's documentation about restoring default firmware settings or configuring your system to auto-detect settings. If the error occurs during Windows XP Professional setup, the problem might be due to unsupported disk controller hardware. In some cases, drivers for new hardware are not in the Windows XP Professional Driver.cab library, and you need to provide additional drivers to complete the Windows XP setup successfully. If this is the case, follow the hardware manufacturer's instructions when installing drivers. Periodically check for driver and firmware updates.

    • Hard disk corruption can also cause this Stop message.

    To test hard disk or volume integrity

    Method 1:

    1. In the Run dialog box, in the Open box type:
    cmd

    2. Start the Chkdsk tool, which detects and attempts to resolve file system structural corruption. At the command prompt type:
    chkdsk drive: /f

    Method 2:

    1. Double-click My Computer, and then select the hard disk you want to check.
    2. On the File menu, click Properties.
    3. Click the Tools tab.
    4. In the Error-checking box, click Check Now.
    5. In Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box. You can also select the Automatically fix file system errors check box.

    If the volume you are checking is in use, a message asks whether you want to delay disk error checking until the next time you restart your computer. After you restart, disk error checking runs and the volume chosen is not available to run other tasks during this process. If you cannot restart the computer due to the error, use safe mode or Recovery Console.

    It is possible that you have a faulty or failing hard drive. Unfortunately, if that's the case there's not alot you can do other than replace it. It's also possible that there is a hardware error causing the problem. It is unlikely to be software related unless a software process caused a physical fault to develop.

    What were you doing with the computer just before this behaviour became apparent?

    The only way get rid of the blue screen, press the on/off button on your laptop.
