Consider the following scenario:
*** Stop 0x000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
This problem may occur if your computer uses an add-on PCI adapter that has an integrated PCI-to-PCI bridge and graphics adaptor. An example of this type of device is a remote access adapter that has multiple, integrated devices such as graphics and integrated device electronics (IDE) or Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) controllers.
This problem occurs because the ISA Enable and VGA Enable bridge control registers may become incorrectly set. Therefore, the boot controller may not be assigned the correct PCI resources. If the boot controller is not assigned the correct PCI resources during the startup process, the hard disk from which Windows starts becomes inaccessible. Therefore, you experience the Stop error that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
