0x0000007B error on XPS
had this error ever since I got my new XPS M170. I never got into windows, so I thought it might be a bad installation. I used the dell diagnostics cd, chkdisk, scandisk, fujitsi diagnostics and finally a fujisti low lvl format and then again a full system check. everything went without errors. then (after 6+ hours of wiping and testing) I was going to reinstall windows... yet again that error!! now while it is loading the hdd/raid drivers (after the 'press F6 to blabla' line).
I also searched on the net for a driver copy from the hdd, but didnt manage to find one. every source stated that winxp already had the driver.

any advice? seems like doa to me though.

smells like a case for dell support

you probably already saw this one?

or this?

here somebody fixed the problem by using checkdsk /p

Normaly there shouldn't be problems, but try checking the BIOS (it can always happen, my dad ones received a server for review that had the L2 cache disabled in the BIOS :rolleyes: )

latest bios version already on it --> dell support.

thx for the tips though!
