win xp media center RRS feed

  • Question

  • Pc boots up then after about 1.5 minutes pc will shut down and restart cycling on & off.


    When I try to run win xp cd I get this error message.

    A problem has been detected & 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 be sure you have adequate disk space. if a driver is identified in the stop message,disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updated. try changing video adapters.

    Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as chachingor 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.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF76440BF, 0xF7A90208, 0xF7A8ff08)

    *** pci.sys - Address F76440BF base at F763D000, DateStamp 3b7d855c.
    I have tried everything I am at a loss.
