Hello everyone,


     I am working on a computer at the office, and I am receiving a stop error code of


 0x0000007B (0xF9973524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

  When booting into the O/S it will go to the Win2k loading screen, and then pull up the error screen. I have removed the RAM and Hard Drive out of the system and replaced it with new components. Also, I have flashed the bios to the most current version (Asus P4BGL-VM Motherboard). However, when I use my Windows 2000 or XP startup discs to install a fresh copy of Windows it will detect new hardware then go to the screen where it's loading drivers, but when it says 'Setup is starting Windows' it kicks me to the error message.

 I've run out of ideas where to turn to as far as what could be wrong with the system. It's obviously a hardware issue, but I don't know what it is exactly, perhaps it doesn't like the memory in the system. None of the caps on the board look bulging or popped, and everything in bios is set to default. There's also no other pci or agp cards in the system.

Take a look at the following web page,

The board is defective. It is the only part still left in the system when it's giving the error messages.
