Windows 7: Stop c000021a

07 Aug 2009   #11

 

AS per always. not 100% but since Win95 98% of all BSOD is due to DRIVERS.

You might try setting install mode in Compatibility mode for Vista.

I would not say 98% because I've seen alot of hardware BSOD's

As far as drivers go you would think that the drivers included on the windows 7 dvd would be compatibile with the OS. I BSOD with out installing a single file all it takes is a reboot after the install finishes.


I have talked to Toshiba and it looks like they will be supporting the L355d-7901 in windows 7. The girl I talked to pretended to be knowledgeable although she didn't know that Toshiba had started releasing drivers for 7 already. I think its going to take a BIOS update gentlemen.

I'm back to Vista X64 for know.

I'm only relating info from MS. I actually thought it was higher myself. but 98% of the problems are not MS (OS) related. They say the problem is manufacture.

Hardware is like Devices. they all need drivers. ?Still all in all the c000021a error goes back to Win95 and 64Bit OS. and that is a lot of OS's that have the problem or is it the other manufactures that feel its not worth there time to fix.

Hope he gets it fixed.

I *think* this is the stop code I sometimes get and it's related to my attempts to overclock just a little bit more.

Well I finally got windows 7 to work on my laptop, but I had to install 32 bit, someone else mentioned it I think, it has to do with 64 bit and driver enforcement.

Ahh. The problem is not MS but, yes, the manufacturers. Example, when vista came out and people were lacking drivers, everyone was quick to say MS and Vista is s**t. Sorry, didn't know MS had to release ATI graphics for your card.

It's not MS's fault if the manufacturers can't keep up with them...

It IS MS's fault though when they provide generic drivers that cause the PC to bluescreen before you can even install windows.

MS doesn't "provide" the drivers - they reposit the drivers provided by the manufacturers. The reposited driver does not fail on all systems. In your case, it seems, you a system not capable of 64-bit.
