Memory management probably caused by a driver.

You have drivers from as far back as 2006.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Please run these two tests after updating the drivers

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Driver verifier

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

Well I've been trying to replace all the drivers, got through many of them. Before I could finish the problem got worse (more frequent). Now I can't boot at all - tried everything I could find on the web (safe mode, alt-F10, boot from Windows installation disk, recovery disk, etc.).

With the recovery, boot, installation disks it either says "bootmgr is missing" or I get a Windows Boot Manager window that says Windows failed to start, repair it with the installation disk and says:
File: \windows\system32\config\system
status: 0xc0000001
Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt

Thanks for the reply.

I booted with "ultimate boot cd" and ran some tests - one of the memory dimms gave a LOT of errors, when I replaced it I could boot with the Windows CD.

Everything was gone from my hard drive (I tried some system restore that was for the Vista system that came with the laptop) I think that may have wiped it. I figured I'd have to reinstall anyway.

Reinstalled Windows 7 and everything is working fine (I will make sure to update drivers).
