Windows XP boot

Hello,

My computer was working fine earlier until I changed the settings in bios to load devices to the default setting.

Now I'm getting the following error:

0x0000007B (0xBA4C3524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

A blue screen comes up and windows keeps reloading

I'm minutes away from breaking this laptop. I have windows xp installed on it

Try booting into safe mode, also remove the bios battery to reset it back to normal.

check the hard drive configuration  - whats the config set to ATA/AHCI/RAID?

if its set to either AHCI or RAID change it to ATA and reboot see what happens

It sounds like you changed your boot device type setting. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103

In the BIOS, do you see a setting you can change related to boot devices? Try other options such as RAID or AHCI and reboot. Most likely your disk and OS are ok, you just need to tell the BIOS the correct way to access them.

Thanks for all responses.

LHT_ST: It's set to ATA

lee555J5: I don't see an option for RAID or AHCI. I've been having issues with my my network card all morning and I thought that was the issue. I disabled and restarted but i'm still having the same issue except I'm seeing errors "IRQ not configured - PCI on Motherboard" Bus 15 Device 00 Function 05 as well as other similar variants "Bus:02 Bus 03 etc

0x0000007B (0xBA4C3524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Thats the only thing being displayed. Also, when booting in safe mode there seem to be issues with partitioning

I still think it's that boot device BIOS setting. What is the make and model?

blknyellaCommented:
Are you using dual boot for the XP and Ubuntu? Have you partitioned the HDD? If so, the system may have an issue reading the correct boot partition depending on the initial setup.
