Installing an upgraded version of the Windows operating system enables you to use the advanced features added in it. While the upgradation process benefits you in many ways, it might also result as a STOP error message when it fails. The occurrence of STOP error message makes the system unbootable or halts it (when the bootup process is already finished) making all the data inaccessible. The best possible way to restore the data in such situations is by using an up-to-date and valid data backup. However, in case of absence of an updated backup, you need to opt for advanced data recovery software to completely recover and restore your lost data.

Consider a practical scenario, where you upgrade your system from Windows 2000 to Windows XP. When you bootup your system after upgradation, you encounter the below error message:

"STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x804E518E, 0xFC938104, 0xFC937E04)


WUSB54GCx86.sys- Address 92D89498 base at 92D7c000, Datestamp 45c04cc9

The four parameters in the above error message differ with the computer's configuration.

WUSB54GCx86.sys is the name of driver file that might cause the error.

You encounter the same error message each time you attempt to start your system.

The above error message mainly occurs if your computer generates an exception that the error handler does not catch. This exception can be caused by any of the following:

• If the STOP error occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup or after Setup is complete, the system might not have sufficient hard disk space to install Windows XP.

• The computer BIOS (Basic Input Output System) might be incompatible with Windows XP and it needs to be updated.

• The video adapter drivers might be incompatible with Windows XP.

• A device driver or a system service might be corrupted or damaged.

• If the problem is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it might be caused by a third-party remote control program.

To troubleshoot and resolve the above issue, you will need to follow these steps:

• Make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space

• Update the computer BIOS

• Disable the device or update device drivers

• Remove unsigned drivers

• Remove all third-party drivers

• Remove third-party remote control service

But, if all the above resolutions fail to resolve the STOP error message and the data still remains inaccessible, then you need to use go for a clean reinstall of Windows XP. A fresh reinstall erases all the data from the selected partition. In the absence of an up-to-date data backup, the data recovery software can recover all your lost data. Such data recovery tools apply high end scanning algorithms to completely scan, recover and restore the lost data from formatted hard drive partitions.
