Considering Ive run vista 64 on it for the last 8 months Im pretty sure my system can run 64 bit just fine.

Thanks but were talking about laptops that cannot be over clocked.

Just to let you know Toshiba released a bunch of new drivers for this computer 9/2/09. Unfortunately still getting the BSOD. Any other brave soldier want to give it a try? I also download the 30 or so windows 7 updates that are available between the two the drivers and the updates I got the same thing BSOD about every other reboot.

Yikes to mighty, I'm a MUv4 Updates Beta tester and I do not have a total of 20 Honest Windows 7 Updates, that is including Office 14.
WinDefender has the most... updates.

could you post a snap of your "Win 7 updates". Strange.

All the reference's to your stop error is related to "OVERCLOCKING" & OR
3rd party programs using -controlling part of the CPU functions. (sample: AMDs cool&quite, ) another is your HDD is starting to fail. last is revert the BIOS back to default. (stop tweaking it), the let MS do a complete DSKCHK. defrag your HDD, an restore all Drivers back to (WDDM)or default installed by clean install.
Other wise you are killing your system be loading some items which confuse the hell out of it ...

Thanks for the input. Its not overclocked its a laptop. I'm not saying the cpu isn't stepping itself but I am not overclocking it. HDD could be failing but works fine in Vista x64, Windows 7 x86. S.M.A.R.T. has not detected any errors in the drive. Theirs nothing to tweak in the BIOS I wish there was cause I would tweak some stuff off to see if I could get windows 7 x64 to work. It BSODs with and without installing anything, with default drivers and with the drivers posted by Toshiba, all have the same end result BSOD. Also all I have to do is install 7 x64 log in for the first time, reboot and BAM BSOD. I haven't installed anything, removed anything, nothing just install and reboot.

The updates were on this site, somewhere i will post if i find them. They have not been released through windows update yet.

Thanks again.

Apparently your system is NOT X64 compatible.

Looks like I am a tad late to the thread but could you fill out your system specs please?

Done sorry I didn't do it before.
Why thank you, and yes you are correct about your computer supporting X64 (the processor is x64 anyways).

I'm still going through the pages while eating my meat lovers pizza but have you checked for any BIOS updates? This sounds more motherboard related then anything else.

If you could, also try using a different hard drive?

I suspect the BIOS there isn't an update for it yet. I haven't tried a hard drive, I don't have an extra SATA drive except for the one in the PS3. It could be the drive.
