Windows 7: BSOD shortly after startup - 0x0000007e

07 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Starter 32-bit
BSOD shortly after startup - 0x0000007e

This error is occuring on an Inspiron HP mini laptop. The problem only happens when doing a normal windows boot, it does not occur when in Safe Mode. Windows will start up, and after a short period (usually 1-5 minutes) I will get the BSOD error. I've attempted uninstalling updates that had recently been applied to no avail. I imagine that there is a driver error occurring but I am not quite sure and have difficulty "reading" minidumps. I was unable to run the SF_Diagnostic tool during a regular boot but tried running most of the commands in Safe Mode.

Unfortunately, restore points were never set up on this machine either. Any guidance into what the minidumps might be suggesting would be greatly appreciated.
