I have a similar problem. I installed the Windows 7 beta on a Toshiba Satellite L45-S4687, with 2 GB RAM, 1.73 GHz Pentium Dual Core processor and 80 GB HDD. Now, it used to run on Windows Vista Home Premium, and experienced a couple of BSODs. But after I installed Windows 7, it is happening multiple times in a day. The screen says there is something wrong with the file '1gdkmd32.sys'. I googled that but couldn't find any literature on it. I also did a search for the file on my system, but coulsn't find it. And yes, I have already updated all the drivers. Any ideas on what is wrong?

The first post is a bit unclear on the problem. I recently did a clean installation of Windows 7 beta on my system, but am facing multiple BSODs in a day.

Update on this issue: I found something on this site itself (I used the search phrase '1gdkmd32.sys site:bleepingcomputer.com') and learned that this is a system file for the Intel Mobile 945 Express Chipset driver. I located the installation file for the driver on the Intel website (www.intel.com). However, the setup process doesn't complete since the Windows 7 OS isn't supported, and aborts.

Looks like I will just have to live with the crashes until Intel comes out with Windows 7 compatible drivers, or reinstall Windows Vista.

You must run the installer in Vista compatibility mode, and Run as Administrator in order for it to install.

I did do this. Right click 'Troubleshoot compatibility' and with Administrator rights. No go :huh:.
