The fact that this is an error in a Windows driver makes this more likely to be a hardware problem.
But this could also be a compatibility issue - or a low-level driver issue. It depends on what you've installed/haven't installed on the system up to this point.
Please see the Usual Causes section here: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000007E
Only 227 Windows Updates installed. Most systems with SP1 have 300 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
These devices have problems in Device Manager:
Not Available ACPI\SMB0001\3&11583659&0 The drivers for this device are not installed.
Not Available ACPI\HPQ6007\3&11583659&0 The drivers for this device are not installed.
Microsoft Watchdog Timer ACPI_HAL\PNP0C18\0 This device cannot start.
PCI Device PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_5229&SUBSYS_80B0103C&REV_01\4&16246919&0&0012 The drivers for this device are not installed.
The first one is either the Touchpad, Wireless Button, or Chipset drivers - try each one until one works
The second one is most likely The 3D DriveGuard driver
The Microsoft Watchdog Timer is the wd.sys in your BSOD - Get ALL Windows Updates.
The last one is most likely the Realtek Multimedia Card Reader
Please install the drivers for all of these devices
Beyond this I have these 4 suggestions:
1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
2. Get ALL available, compatible updates for your OS from the manufacturer's website.
3. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
4. If all of the hardware tests pass, then run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html
