Hi XxKOLOHExX,

A BSOD is when a system failure happens. For different reasons, could be hardware failure, software compatibility, memory problems,etc.

Here is a little information about BSOD's.

Try to take a picture of your BSOD and post what it says.

Your BSOD does provide some information to help, sometimes simply searching the error code in a search engine will provide an answer. These failures are common when you're trying something new, and its failing.

Have you recently installed new hardware? New software? What was the last thing you did before you noticed the multiple BSODs?

System restore or other repair utilities are out there, but they can messily fix your machine. If you're not an expert though- and you think it may be software related- try system restore, to a point when you remember it working fine.

here is a Microsoft Support article on your error.
General causes of "STOP 0x0000007F" errors


This error message can occur if either of the following conditions exists:
  • Your computer has hardware or software problems (hardware failure is the most common cause).
  • You try to over clock the speed of your computer's processor (for example, you set a 150 MhZ processor to run at 187 MhZ).

Seems to point towards hardware, do you overclock at all? Just curious- what is your experince would you say with computers? I dont know if you like to change a lot of settings or not. Have you installed any ram recently? Have you recently installed new hardware? New software? What was the last thing you did before you noticed the multiple BSODs? Are you getting this error when your are doing something speciffically. Sorry a lot of questions, but BSODs represent a lot of errors.
