I recently got a 0xc000007b error whenever I tried to run some application software. I found that CHKDSK for C drive might be a solution. When I tried to do it from C drive properties, it said the drive was in use and asked to schedule CHKDSK at the next reboot. I clicked OK.
When I restart, I experience a BSOD. I waited for 10 minutes but still nothing happens. So I forced a shutdown (laptop) and again booted up the computer and got a BSOD for just 5 or 10 seconds and system boots and works with no problem.
I repeated all these steps four or five times and yet with the same results.
- Is there any other way other than CHKDSK to solve the 0xc000007b error?
- If not, why is CHKDSK not working at boot up? Can I force CHKDSK on drive C: to perform while the system is on?
Platform: Windows 7 64-bit.
