I do so love it when this happens :( OK, so I restart my laptop and I get a blue screen while it's booting. This happens every time I try and start up. I've tried using system restore points but that does nothing. Same thing with trying to open in safe mode. Blue screen. I've researched the error code it gives me, and apparently Microsoft supplies a hotfix for this kind of problem. The problem is I don't know how to apply it when I can't download the hotfix onto my laptop in the first place :uhoh: Can anyone help out? Please? The error code is 0x0000007B, on the off chance someone has experience with this error in particular.

Help would be greatly appreciated, I head off to university on Wednesday and kind of need my laptop for lots of things. span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; }

It could be a number of things causing this error such has driver issues, hardware issues, device issues and so on. About two years ago I continuously received a blue screen while starting up my computer I then found out it was my drivers, they won't operating correctly.

If you want to get rid of this, you may as well go for the more basic approach meaning a whole system whipe. Or, if you like, you can manually try fixing this issues by downloading a hot fix, as you said. There's also another basic approach meaning a re-install of drivers, devices etc.

Anyway, here is a Link to Microsoft's website were they have published a troubleshooting.

Thanks for the help, but I should of mentioned that I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop. Is there a similar guide for this error in Vista? span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; }

i did a fix on xp for something very similar to this by using the cd, going to recovery console and replacing the entire system directory however im not sure if its the same in vista

also have you tried reseating the ram? because if im right it is a hardware BSOD, in which case its rare, but sometimes a lil dust or something gets caught on a connector, and if you pop the ram out blow em off and put em back in it will fix it
