what does bsod code 0x1000007e mean

Hi,

Over the weekend on a Windows XP machine we had a system scrash with the below bugcheck message:

Quote:
The bugcheck was: 0x1000007e (0xc0000005, 0xb954203c, 0xb8522bb0, 0xb85228ac)


Has anyone any ideas what could definitively cause this?

thanks

    Hi rockie_

    Thanks for your help on this - excuse my ignorance, but what is whoscrashed?
  3. Its a program
  4. bugcheck 0x1000007e = SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
    but the actual error returned was 0xc0000005
    Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 (3221225477) - The instruction at 0x%p referenced memory at 0x%p. The memory could not be %s.

    Basically a bad address was passed to a driver.

    normally, you would update the drivers, scan for malware, do a sfc.exe /scannow to look for corrupted OS files,
    do a chkdsk to look for file system corruptions. Update the BIOS or reset it to defaults and run memtest86 to check for hardware problems with your memory or BIOS memory timings.
