ThinkPad T23 Windows XP SP2 blue screen BSOD STOP 0x7E crashing on startup
Posted on 2006-07-13
My IBM ThinkPad T23 laptop running Windows XP SP2 has just begun crashing with a blue screen BSOD STOP 0x7E crash on startup:
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer."
STOP 0X0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF70214D0, 0xF79C3FEC, 0xF79C3CEC)
The computer starts properly in Safe Mode--but it crashes on startup with the STOP 0x7E in Safe Mode with Networking.
Here's what I've tried so far, unsuccessfully:
1. System Restore to a restore point when the computer was working
2. msconfig with both diagnostic startup and selective startup with everything disabled
Apparently something in networking is causing the problem, but the msconfig options above don't disable it.
Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
