Windows 7: BSOD after restarting from sleep mode

Lot's of different errors with no resolution - suggests running Driver Verifier.
Lot's of Driver Verifier errors with no resolution - suggests a hardware error.

So, let's try this procedure (there's 2 others after this one):
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, 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 Startup Repair feature).

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 waitfor 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.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn offDriver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

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.
If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line.

I ran driver verifier and it just crashes before i can log into windows. And sadly, the dump file it makes is about 100megs and i can't seem to get my debug program symbols working properly for me to see what is wrong.

Zip up the dump file and upload it to a free file hosting service (I use | Simple Online Collaboration: Online File Storage, FTP Replacement, Team Workspaces ~ Free Version )
Then share it out and post the link here.

You can set the system to make minidumps using this link: Set MiniDump
You can fix the symbols in your debugger by using paragraph E in this link: WinDbg Analysis Report
