BSOD due to ntkrnlpa.exe?

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum and am trying to help somone (remotely). Installed W7, 32bit (fresh install) 3 days ago... every time when in sleep mode we get infamous "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error. Anyways, all drivers are updated directly from Lenovo's website and there are no external devices attached. Here is the copy & paste of dump file generated by Windbg (I have 4 identical dump files). Any help is appriciated.

When Windows system files are involved in stop errors, we need to look at what caused the system file to go wrong. Please follow this to post the crash dump:

FYI - Open WinDbg, go to File...Symbol File Path
Delete anything in the box.
Then copy the stuff in the Code box below and paste it into the box.
Code:
SRV*c:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
Then click on OK to exit the dialog.
Then close WinDbg and answer Yes when it asks you if you want to "Save information for workspace"
