Every once in a while out of the blue my laptop will crash with blue screen error messages. I don't know if my hd is failing me or i've got registry errors or what, but they're getting annoying. The blue screen messages are as follows. "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again , follow these steps. Check to be sure there is adequate disc space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with manufacture for updates. Try changing video adapters. Check with your hardware vendor for any Bios updates. Disable Bios memory options such as caching or shadowing.If you need to use safe mode to remove/disable components, restart computer , press f8 to select advanced start up options, then select safe mode. Technical Info: Stop: 0x0000007E(0xC0000005,0x804EF268,0xF79DA7B8,0xF79DA4B4. Another variation to this error mssg screen is one that has this message at the begginning. "A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated." Will do some scans to see if anything shows up.
