My laptop has failed. Will not charge or run off AC.
Will be out for 2 weeks.

So what to do? I have cloned the drive for use in a desktop.

All my work is on there and numerous programs and settings are stored so I hoped that I would be able to use the hdd drive in an old desktop computer.

Problems is. Blue screen on boot.

Error message:
STOP: 0x0000007e (0xC0000005, 0xF77CC756, 0xF7A4342c, 0xF7A43128)

I have tried:
- Repair with WinXP CD on boot.
- Fixboot
- Bootcfg/ Rebuild.

I can start in safemode but not normal. I have two windows partitions on the disk. The one I am trying to repair no longer works in safemode because the repair needs to start up in normal mode and that still fails. so I am writing this in safemode on the other windows partition.

Both partitions have the same error message on boot in normal.

Need help, I cannot do my work!
