There was only one minidump file in the collection and as you had previously posted, the error is a Bugcheck code 1000007E.
Since this is a new Windows installation, make sure that you have all Windows Updates installed, then go to the HP website
, enter your notebook model number (sticker on bottom) and install any updated drivers, especially chipset driver. It's good, as you have pointed out, to stay away from Windows Updates and third party driver download utilities when updating drivers. I see that there is a newer BIOS for your system.
Since a bad memory module can cause varied BSODs
or computer freezing, it would be worth while testing memory. It is best to test memory outside the Windows operating system, so please follow this post: Windows 7 - RAM - Test with Memtest86+
to either create a bootable CD
(Method 2) or bootable USB flash drive
(Method 1) to run the test.
BSOD Bug Check Code
- Once the computer is booted from the CD or USB flash drive, MemTest86+ with start automatically and continue until you stop it by pressing the ESC key.
- My recommendation would be to run MemTest86+ overnight; 12 hours rather than just 7 passes.
- There should be NO errors reported.
- The test can be stopped by pressing the ESC key as soon as an error is reported or to stop the test after 12 hours.
- See Part 3: If you have errors.
- Caution: If your computer is still under warranty, opening the case to remove memory for testing purposes, may VOID that warranty.
