My laptop keeps going to the BSOD everytime I boot it up. The message says:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF8A7F528, 0xC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

Any ideas on how to stop this??

Ok, I'll start from the top of your reply- oh and thanks for replying!
Alright, so I'm using Windows XP on the laptop and, er... I'm just a little confused after that ;)

Thanks again!


Have you installed any new device drivers recently. Such as for a graphics card or some piece of other Hardware?
Have you reinstalled anything by Roxio? It normally comes as standard on some laptops/computers?
Also have you had a Virus or any other nasty recently? What Anti-Virus program do you run? e.g. Norton, AVG etc.
