I apologize if this isn't the correct forum for this issue. I found your site while Googling for similar issues and ended up here. The advice looks very promising so I'm hoping you can help me!

I received the following error on a BSOD after burning a data DVD last week. Now, when I look at the contents of a single data DVD, take the DVD out and replace it with another data DVD, Windows explorer locks up. Then, at shutdown, 3 files/programs don't shutdown and have to be manually killed: dvdlauncher.exe, tfswctrl.exe, and something called "Dummy Mixer Callback". I downloaded and ran hijackthis and have included the log it created.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The OS Error:

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

The 7E error can occur as a result of various things - software or hardware. Microsoft lists:

This issue may occur if a system thread generates an exception that the error handler does not catch. This may occur if one or more of the following conditions exist:

•If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is finished, the computer may not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows.

•If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is complete, the computer BIOS may be incompatible with Windows.

•Incompatible video adapter drivers.

•Damaged RAM.

•A damaged device driver or system service.

•If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it may be caused by a third-party remote control program.

If it was me, I'd do a clean reinstall first to check if it still happened. Then attack hardware piece by piece to find out where the problem was. But that's just me because I have my drive imaged and can recover quickly. If recovery is a problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling video and other drivers.


Wow! Thanks for the quick response. It sounds like I need to get Dell to do something. About a month ago, a USB port went bad and they sent someone out who replaced the motherboard. Is it possible that the new motherboard is creating this situation?


Technically, yes. But to fair: probably not :)

Dell will probably want you to recover the machine before they send anyone out though, won't they?


I'm sorry, but I have to support them on it :)

Their job is to get your machine working as quickly as possible and if they send out an engineer with a spare part, which doesn't work, and then requires recovery anyway, that's a wasted visit someone else could have had, and spare part that wasn't needed which costs someone somewhere money. Next time you buy a Dell, that'll end up being you ;)

I work in the same job for another company, and the recovery option is a diagnostic tool. 80% of problems can be resolved over the telephone in spite of our customers (not meaning you, by the way) often demanding engineers because they deleted something and think something broke inside. Doing the recovery first eliminates any possibility of software problems in the original configuration. And it only takes 10 minutes in most cases (though Dell might be one of the OS recoveries, if I remember correctly, so a couple of hours).

But a couple of hours is better than a couple of weeks waiting for a part that may not be needed.

Work with them and they'll work with you :)


I spent four hours peforming their extended diagnostic last night...no errors. Their solution now is to format the harddrive and reinstall Windows. I'm 95% certain this issue is related to the DVDLauncher software that they install as TSR. DVDLauncher is apparently used to view movies. I only use this laptop for software development; all DVDs are data only. I've had so many issues with DVDs and CDs as a result of the extra software/drivers that Dell installed (e.g. this one and Sonic DLA). Unfortunately, I don't have the expertise to determine where/how the drivers are conflicting or how to resolve the issue


How old is the machine and how long has it been working perfectly as far as this problem goes before it all went wrong?

If it was OK for a significant time, then suddenly wasn't, something has changed and it's that you've got to nail.

The reinstall technique is the final diagnostic: if it won't work after that there is a hardware problem. That's why they're doing it, and they appear to have tried everything else to their credit.

What else can they do? Send you an engineer? To do what?

Go along with them and the quicker it will get sorted :)
