It's sad that my first thread in this forums is related to a crash, but I'm certainly stuck right now.
Well... the story begins like this: it's an old notebook from a client. Since she changed some time ago 1 GB. of RAM in replace of the original 256 MB. module the notebook have originally (that was damaged some time ago) and since she's not having money issues I decided to recommended her to buy Windows 7. So, she bought Windows 7 Ultimate (she wanted that, I've actually recommended just Home Premium) and I've happily installed it without apparent problems for a good couple of hours. Then, I've continued fixing some other PC's I've here for repair and that took me a while... like an hour. When I went back to the laptop, it had an BSOD with error 0x0000008E.
Anyway, I continued installing things and setting up everything keeping in mind the error and... nothing. So, a client called me at phone for about 45 minutes, leaving the laptop in idle... just the desktop and some wallpapers doing slideshow. When I came back, there was the BSOD again... other BSOD, acussing error 0x0000007F.
So, I suspected for power configuration and noticed that the coolers were off but the rest of the laptop doesn't.
My next move was pressing Windows+X for the Mobility Center and everytime I want to change the power policy, I got a BSOD with a random error.
The full system specs are: CPU:
AMD Sempron LV 3000+ (1.8 GHz.) RAM:
1 GB. DDR-333, Kingston Chipset:
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M (RS480M/SB450) GPU:
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M HDD:
Toshiba MK4025GAS (40 GB., IDE, 4200 RPM) ODD:
TSSTcorp Combo (DVD-ROM/CD-RW 8x24x24x24) Other:
- Texas Instruments UltraMedia Card Reader PCI xx21/xx11
- Broadcom 802.11g Wireless LAN OS:
Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bits, obviously
installed normally, except for HP Quick Launch Buttons who needed to download the Vista driver
and installed using compatibility with Vista.
Also, I've noticed that there in the hidden drivers is a Unknokn "Keyboard_Filter_01" and in the BIOS Setup, in "Advanced" section is a configuration for "Battery Setting optimization" that can be configured for "Battery life" or "Performance".
Memory and HDD went perfect.
I'm in a hurry right now and must to leave... NOW.
Every help is well received. I'm desperated!
