I've been getting the blue screen of death (bsod) for quite some time now, but only occasionally when I put my laptop into standby. I would close the lid, it goes to standby, and a few hours later when I'm ready for it again, I get the bsod. However recently, I've been getting it in other instances. I have a Cruzer Sandisk 1g flashdrive. Sometimes when I put it in my computer, I get the bsod. Earlier when it did this, I manually turned off my laptop and turned it back on, logged in and activated the flashdrive. It worked fine until I properly ejected it like I've done a hundred times before and I get the bsod again. The flashdrive has NEVER done this before.
I've run multiple virus scans on my laptop and the flashdrive and I have no idea what's going on. Here's the technical error code the bsod gave me when I got the bsod from properly ejecting my flashdrive:
stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x806E494F, 0xF7AB0C30, 0xF7AB092C)
I have no idea what the code means, but hopefully somebody does and it can help. Thank you.
Aargh! I just got the bsod again! I was loading Limewire pro which has been perfectly fine ever since I got it and I get the bsod. Doubt there's a connection, but just want to be thorough. I was also on Bleepingcomputer too. Here's this new technical error message:
stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x804ED942, 0xF7AB8C34, 0xF7AB8930)
I had even tried putting my flashdrive in to see if I would get the bsod, and I didn't. I allowed some hope that this bsod thing was a fluke, but then I get it again . I have no idea what's going on, please help! I'm going to go into safe mode and run virus scans.
I will be using spybot s&d, adaware se personal, bitdefender 8 free, antivir classic, a-squared free, and superantispyware free. I've had them for quite some time so no, they're not interfering with each other and causing any probs related to the bsod.
Well, I finished the scans and as I thought, nothing. No idea what could be causing this random bsod.
I closed my laptop lid to put it in standby. An hour later, I open the lid to bring it out of standby, the screen is black for about a minute, then I see my background as I should (though it shouldn't take so long), but instead of the sign-on window, the bsod pops up . Here's its technical error code:
stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x806E494F, 0xF7AB4C30, 0xF7AB492C)
