Blue Screen with Error Message c000026c error.

Having issues trying to diagnose the "next" step.

This issue came up after we had a power surge.

Rebooted the PC and hit "F8" to load PC to last know good configuration. - Same blue screen with the same error popped up.
Rebooted the PC and hit "F8" to go into safe mode configuration. - Same blue screen with the same error popped up.

Not sure what else to do.

The system will not boot up at all. It will just keep going back to the blue screen with the error.

Just from a top level the c000026c error usually is caused by a device driver issue. This is usually due to new hardware being added to the system. Have you added anything to this computer recently in the way of hardware?

No  new hardware added. Just a power surge then the Blue screen.

What type of computer is this, does it have BIOS hardware diagnostics?

On boot, you will get a splashscreen, usually it is either esc or F11 to enter the boot menu, see if there is a boot option to launch hardware diagnostics or just tell me what your boot options are.
