Vista Home Premium 32 bit is generating a BSOD during the shutdown process. This was the error code that came up at the BSOD:


Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007A (0xC04EB648, 0xC000000E, 0x12ADB860, 0x9D6C901F)

*** spsys.sys - Address 9D3C901F base at 9D649000, DateStamp 49b69f04


I used BlueScreenView to be able to view the BSOD dumps and this is the latest one:

Have you already run chkdsk?

This particular problem may indicate a failing hard drive. Do you know which brand it is?

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
