For the last week my Pentium 4 Windows XP comp occasionally crashes when I turn it on. I get a blue screen telling me I might want to disable Bios cache/shadowing options.

The technical error is:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF74A6629, 0xF8916EF4, 0xF8916BF0)

I went to the Intel website and used their automatic diagnostic tool to see if my drivers needing updating. It said I currently had 5.611.1231.2003 Wired Networking and that version 5.639.0118.2006 is available. So I downloaded it and chose "RUN" but I still randomly get the blue error message on start up and the Intel Driver Update Utility still claims my system hasn't been updated!

I'd be really grateful if anyone can help me.

Do you know what the second line says?

For example like this...


That will help narrow down what the cause is.


Gigabyte Z87X-OC | i7 4770K @ 4.4Ghz | Corsair H80i | 16Gb TeamGroup Vulcan Orange
EVGA 780 FTW | Creative X-FI Titanium HD | 500Gb Samsung EVO SSD + 4TB's of Storage
Corsair HX850 | Logitech G25 | Ducky Shine III | Deathadder 2013 | Wireless 360 Pad
