Windows 7: BSOD on PC Startup 0x1000007e

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
BSOD on PC Startup 0x1000007e

Hi everyone,

I have been having occasional BSODs, all of them occuring when my computer is starting up. I am running a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on a Lenovo Ideapad S215 Laptop. I have used applications like Blue Screen View to analyze what the BSODs are being caused by and from whatever I found, it seems like it has been caused by the Video Port Driver.
I am attaching a screenshot of the Blue Screen View Application. I am also attaching the zip file created by DM Log Collector for your convenience. Your help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Run the DM Log Collector again, there is a file missing.

Probably caused by : invalid_control_transfer

Followup: MachineOwner
 *** Possible invalid call from 88330f54 ( VIDEOPRT!VideoPortFindAdapter2+0xa5 ) <-- This shouldn't have happened.
 *** Expected target 88328037 ( VIDEOPRT!memset+0x0 ) <-- So this is what was meant to be called.
We have an access violation which indicates the CPU tried to access memory that it couldn't address for whatever reason.

88330f54 e8de70ffff      call    VIDEOPRT!memset (88328037)
88330f59 c70670000000    mov     dword ptr [esi],70h
88330f5f 8b83e4000000    mov     eax,dword ptr [ebx+0E4h]
88330f65 894604          mov     dword ptr [esi+4],eax
88330f68 8b83e0000000    mov     eax,dword ptr [ebx+0E0h]
88330f6e 83c40c          add     esp,0Ch
88330f71 894608          mov     dword ptr [esi+8],eax
88330f74 83e800          sub     eax,0
This, I believe is then the call that was invalid.

I'm struggling to find anything else.

You might want to try a later display driver version as this is a bit outdated.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol is known cause of BSODs, you will have to find an alternative as there is no way around this.

How to remove sptd.sys from system

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
3. Double click the executable to open it
4. Click the button shown below

If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.

Thank you so much for all the trouble. I have uninstalled Daemon Tools and have downloaded a new driver from the AMD site and have already installed it. Now is the time to wait and see if the BSODs are coming back or not. I will let you know in case of such occurrences. Thanks again!
