I have a network (Workgroup) that has 6 computers.  At about the same time 2 computers started acting slow and locking up.  They both run Win XP.  I have run UBCD disks on both for memory and hard drives.   On the hard drives (Seagate) it says that there may be a firmware update available.  I ran Combfix, Hitman Pro and Malwarebutes to remove malware (There was some, not a large amount).  I then tried to run a repair with two different Windows XP cds .  I get blue screens about 2 mins into trying to run the CDs.  I put a new hard drive in and I get a blue screen at the same location.    Any ideas?

Try to restore those PCs to earlier point where they didn't have issues.

If that doesn't work, then just run the repair using ur XP media.

What is the source of your XP CD's?

Do these PC's have SATA hard drive(s)?  Are they running in IDE mode, or AHCI?

If SATA, do you have SATA drivers slip-streamed into those XP CD's?
Remember, "stock" XP disks did not support native SATA drives!

This is the main cause of BSOD when reinstalling XP on newer PC's!

The Blue screen says "A Problem has ben detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer".  If this is the ....   follow these steps:

Check for viruses .....and then restart your computer.

Technical Informaion:

*** STOP:  0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

n2fc No I don't have them slipstreamed.   Can you point to directions for this?

Stop 0x0000007b is generally controller related. You see it mainly when swapping a windows install from machine to machine.

I would nip into the bios, and see if you can change the SATA operation. It will be set to either Compatible IDE or AHCI , just swap it and see if the install works.

As another suggested, you can of course change your BIOS settings to have the SATA drive(s) run in IDE mode...

For a reference in how to slipstream in the SATA drivers, see:
