I have been working on a Dell laptop for the past few days. During an OS install I kept receiving a BSOD, I tried swapping the HDD and the memory to no avail. Finally I removed the wireless card and the installation completed without a BSOD. (I should mention the BSOD happened at the end of the install during a reboot and would only flash for a split second). I figured the wireless card was bad and needed to be replaced. But now it is Blue Screening again about 75% of the time on startup with this message


Stop: 0x0000007B (0X80606BA0, 0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0x00000000)

From what I've found is it is a inaccessble boot device, but it would BSOD on a restore with a new hard drive. I'm thinking the hard drive controller might be going out, but I want to be sure. Any ideas?

You followed the Dell procedures for restoring to factory conditions?

Did that system come with a restore/recovery partition on the original hard drive?

Actually I have a Vista OEM disc that I used. Never had any issues with this disc before, restored plenty of computer with it. I didn't think that would be an issue. I even burned a new copy of it to make sure it wasn't the disc.
