Ok so ive had my laptop for about a year and a half (it's a compaq cq60-215dx). came with Vista, used my free upgrade to 7 last october (2009). Its run flawlessly until yesterday- ive started getting this BSOD randomly. No single action seems to trigger it, no amount of time before it comes up, anything. a few times i booted and used the comp for about 2 hours before it came up, and a few times it came up within 10 seconds of startup. I have the minidump files, but they are on that comp (im on a different one because of said issue) and i'm not sure how to zip them.. thats how ive seen everyone else attaching them.
Anyway, i have the error codes from the bottom of the BSOD, i sent them to a techie friend and he said it was something with my video card driver- which i went ahead and reinstalled, to no avail.
Incase anyone here can do anything with them, the error codes from the bottom read:
STOP: 0x00000001 (0x00000030, 0x00000002, 0x00000000)
athr. sys- Address 8f46a8a5 base at 8f428000.
I have a screenshot of the BSOD taken with a camera if theres anything else you need from it to diagnose.. any help is appreciated!
