Getting many different STOP errors, and some other issues. Here we go:
I run a custom built computer, housed
inside of a RAVEN 2 case; EVGA p55 LE motherboard, windows i5 (2.66 when not OC) processor, 8g ddr3 Corsair RAM, 2 10000 RPM
Raptor Drives in RAID0, a third 600 gig drive, with backups, ect; lots of USB hardware, wacom intuos 4 large -- logitech g15,
belkin n52te, mx revolution mouse, hub's, gamepads, usb-audio, and some others.
Just installed logitech rumblepad
2 game controller, and a usb->audio/mic jack converters before error occured, after i installed them, i shut down computer,
it installed 1 auto update, don't know what, and i left it to shut down. when i came back the next morning, y CPU was at 47*C
and the computer had not shut down. I quickly shut it down and left to school. i usually run under 30C, but the i5 has been
higher than 50 and stable before.
Now when i boot up, i get an error message. I went to BIOS, disabled quick boot,
unplugged the USB logitech gamepad, and tried again. no luck, so i removed most of the usb devices, and tried again, fail.
Well damn, I kept trying to get into startup repair, and i believe i was able to restore the computer to before the drivers.
Startup repair would also give the errors, aswell as safe mode. I was able to get into safe mode once, and only once, where i
tried to get rid of the drivers (couldnt find, system restore thus worked). Now i am at a loss, cannot get into windows
i have gotten following errors (append an 0x000...) before:
7E normal startup failure
 too fast to tell, when shutting down from the 1 safe mode
7E Before any options
anther one too fast to tell
7e, 7e, 7e, once when trying to get to recovery options, safe mode, normal, ect
I Am fairly certain that
0x0000007E is the problem, because the other ones f4, d1 are no longer appearing.
So help? I have all of my files
backed up (including a disk image) to a third hard drive, and all documents there, on mozy, and on dropbox -- so a complete
restore is possible and acceptable, if highly annoying.
