I was using Windows XP: Media Center and computer crashed for no reason and i got this BSOD code: 0x0000007F

Restarted computer and it never booted to windows. the windows logo came up but then a BSOD screen appears, with this code 0x000000D1 and then it restarts and just cycles through that

Sometimes the monitor displays a distorted screen. Sometimes its like 4 screenshots all on the monitor sometimes the screen seems offset, not straight.

whats the problem.

Its an HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop with TWO 512mb Ram sticks and an Intel Centrino Dual Processor. Thanks for reading this

I googled the codes and i couldnt find a working solution.

nope, I cant get into windows period safe mode or regular or whatever. I only see the windows logo and then a brief very brief bsod screen and then it reboots to the bios then windows logo then BSOD (less than a second) then Bios and so on. and once in a blue moon windows actually boots into the explorer and stuff but it crashes in a few minutes. I dont even have enough time to run windows update. Sometimes it boots but with the messed up screen like i said earlier. I was having these problems before and i thought it was an OS problem so I installed a fresh new copy of XP and it worked flawless for a few hours and then it crashed and its been like that ever since.

Download a free copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a cdrom and reboot the computer with the dvd/cdrom as your primary boot device run the long and short test and see if you get any errors.

Sounds like a memory problem or overheating. Check for dust buildup inside the case, then try removing one of the memory sticks and run memtest again. If the test fails again swap the sticks and try again. let us know what happens.
