Welcome to Computer maintenance advice
We provide advice and news on computer maintenace and stopping computers suffering from malware and viruses.
The Stop 0×7A message indicates that a webpage of kernel information was not discovered in the paging (virtual memory) file and couldn’t be read into memory. This might be because of an incompatible disk or controller drivers, firmware, or even hardware.
1. Stop 0×7A can be a result of bad sectors in the virtual memory file, disk controller error, viruses, or memory hardware difficulties. In very rare cases, depleted nonpaged resources can bring about this error. If the first and third brackets are zero, the standard signature in the kernel stack is absent, an error typically created by defective hardware. If the I/O status is bad and the paging file is on a SCSI disk, have a look for cabling and termination issues. An I/O status code of 0xC000009C or 0xC000016A shows that the requested data could not be discovered. You can attempt to correct this by restarting the computer. If a difficulty with disk integrity is live, Autochk, a program that tries to mark problematic disk sectors as defective so that they can not be used in the future, begins automatically. If Autochk fails to run, you can perform the integrity check yourself by using the instructions to run Chkdsk offered in “Stop 0×00000024 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM”.
2. Another thing which leads to Stop 0×7A messages is defective, difficult, or failed memory hardware, such as memory modules, Level 2 (L2) SRAM cache, or video adapter RAM. If you have new hardware lately, eradicate and replace it to determine if it is bringing about or contributing to the problem. Run diagnostics software offered by the system manufacturer to find out if the component has failed.
We offer loads of tips about how to improve your computer.
A healthy hard drive is key to an efficiently running computer. It’s therefore so important that you leave some space on there. It’s often thought that around 500mb is the lowest amount of space you must have on your drives at any time, but I often to err on the side of safety and leave a good couple of GB’s free. Why you should leave free areas is because Windows can get full and clogged up if you let your hard drive fill to maximum and start dropping data. If you leave plenty of drive space then you won’t be in danger of losing data and it would also be able to find files and folders more simply.
Don’t turn off your computer until Windows has shut down.
It can be desirable at times when shut down is taking much more time than usual to simply switch off your computer using the power switch. But the few seconds saved by switching it off like that can mean hours of distress the next time you turn it back on. Windows can shed files or discover that they’ve been corrupted, and you could lose documents or folders just because you were too hasty to wait a few more seconds. In some (but rare) cases you can even cause long lasting damage to your drives.
