There's a couple of issues here that make this problematic to troubleshoot:

First is that there is an issue with the date/time stamps on your system files - so the Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular NTOSKRNL.EXE / NTKRNLMP.EXE / NTKRNLPA.EXE / NTKRPAMP.EXE) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds

Next is that it's an HP system - so there's a lot of older drivers that will need replacing (HP loads more drivers than may be needed for your system - HP DV4 Drivers ). The theory behind this is that the older drivers are more likely to be a problem - so replacing them is more likely to solve issues (In short, it's a guess). If it's an HP system that came with Windows 7 installed I tend to worry less about these drivers (because of the testing that HP puts the systems through).

So, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:
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 manufacturer links are on this page:

Here's the older drivers. Please pay particular attention to any dated 2008 or earlier:
