Hey, I was on this forum a week or two ago, and since that time i replaced my hd and done a clean boot. Haven't had any problems since then, but i was dual screening (laptop and lcd) and I got a blue screen. Now, I was playing Civ4 (1024x768 and on Low graphics) windowed on my laptop screen, and aim on the lcd. Probably a bad idea, lot of stress on computer. My specs are a 1.5 ghz Centrino, 1.25 gb of ram, 80 gb hd 5400rpm, and a 128mb Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo. Heres the error log:

Thanks for the error description - it makes it much easier to help figure this out.

Here's a link to the 0x7f error description:

Now, this seems to be a "funky" problem that has many causes.

So, here's my take on it. If this only happens when using the LCD and CRT - then don't do it! Problem solved! :thumbsup: Seriously, if this causes it, then it's not good for your hardware.

Since it's a laptop, it's very difficult to troubleshoot since we can't swap parts out. But, I'd at least check your memory out by using one of these free, floppy based memory testers (there are CD versions available also):


Let the test run for at least 2 hours (overnight is better). Any errors are no good! (others will say that a few are OK - but do you want an error in the middle of balancing your checkbook?). Let us know the results and we can continue from there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
