    Hi all plz help if you can.

    My specs.

    mobo - Asus cusl2-c Intel 815 EP chipset
    cpu - Intel P3 1 Ghz
    ram - 2 x 128mb Kingmax
    video - 32mb Geforce 2 mx
    h/d - Quantum fireball 13 Gig
    cdrw - sony 32x8x4
    sound - s/blaster live value

    I was running win98se with no probs.
    Went to upgrade to XP Pro with error:

    Stop - 0x0000007e (0xC0000005, 0x80845B83, 0xF9E853D8, 0xF9E850D8)

    Happens in same spot all the time.

    fdisked and reformatted to go back to win98se but new error comes up as : MSGSRV32 caused invalid page fault at kernel32.dll etc etc etc. (detecting h/ware and s/ware 18 minutes to go.)

    Funny thing is I can install win98 1st edition no probs.

    I've tried swapping h/drives vid cards and ram around with no luck. i saw a previous post with similar probs.

    I suspect my mobo but can ne1 confirm my worst nightmare.

    many thx in advance.

    Instead of doing an upgrade install of XP, try a fresh install. Sometimes an upgrade to XP doesn't turn out the way you would like. Someone else may have some ideas here.

    Try a google search for 'Stop - 0x0000007e'. Have a look through the results.

    Try taking all cards out of your system except video and do a clean XP install. Once that is done, update your drivers for mobo, video card, etc. Once that is done, try adding in other cards and see if problems arise.

    lol, you might try a dual boot setup too. Make a tiny 1-2 gig primary partition for Win98, and then install XP on the next partition.

    it's working

    it's installing so far much further then before. my gosh it might just work !!!

    What I did was slow the FSB and sdram ratio from

    133:133:33

    to 100:100:33

    and now it's working yippee.

    There must be an issue with the 133 FSB speed

    ne1 know of any similar issues.

    Gee I haven't got any h/ware out of the ordinary have I ??

    The google search came up with bad ram.
