I had a power outage last night, and my pc shut down. Now when I restart it I get the blue screen with this stop message: Stop:0x0000007a (0xc0384068, 0xc000000e, 0xe101aa06, 0x00d1b880) Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error

So i am wondering if my hard drive has died or if it is just some data corruption issue. I can't boot into windows, but using a knoppix live cd I get access to my hard drive and all the files on it, but everything is really slow. I scanned the hard disk for errors, but no errors were found and no bad sectors. So is my hard drive done and i need a new one?

btw i run windows 2000 professional on an hp omnibook xe3 =/ and the hard drive is a Toshiba MK8026GAX. I searched for my stop message on windows knowledge base and goole but couldn't find anything that seems to be my problem.

Thanks for any info.

I did a google search too and this is what I found


This Stop error has the same underlying cause as 0x77 errors: a page of kernel data was not found in virtual memory (the page file). This might be due to incompatible disk or controller drivers or hardware problems, such as an improperly terminated SCSI device, bad blocks on the hard disk, or a conflict with the BIOS or other firmware on a disk controller. Run the Windows XP Check Disk. If the disk manufacturer has a more comprehensive disk utility, use it to do a thorough check of each physical hard disk on the system.


Go to Google and type in Stop 0x0000007a . I promise it will show you 88 different results.
Also try this http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&mkt=en-US&q=stop+0x0000007a

assuming that you may have corrupt data as U suspect. use your search eng. to find "repairxp.txt". if nothing else, download the file and read it CAREFULLY. it tells U how to reload the OS w/o loosing the important stuff such as liscensing, etc. the site itself also has info that I've found useful as I had to go through that myself. some apps may(and usually do) have to be reloaded for the sake of the registry, etc.
