    i have a toshiba with an operating system of windows xp professional
    everytime i try to turn it on it goes to a BSOD with the tech info of:
    stop: 0x0000007E (oxc0000005, 0x82293562, 0cF898E7E4, 0xF898E4E0)

    i've tried all the safe mode start ups and also F8.
    can anyone help me understand what's wrong with my laptop?
    step by step instuctions are welcome and probably needed.

    Hi

    Stop errors are not always easy to fix. You could google it and follow the instructions you find. Sometimes it's hardware. Often it is just a screwed up Windows which happens for no particular reason. One thing to try first is doing a system restore back to a point before this happened. Do you know you to do that?

    Is there anything else to the stop error. Any word messages or files mentioned?
    Did this start after you did anything? Like driver updates ore hardware additions?
    Do you have your Windows install discs?

    Next time you get the BSOD, see if it mentions a file name. That would help.

    Can you boot into Safe Mode ? ( Boot the machine, after the memory counting screen, repeatedly press F8. It should show a menu )
