This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
use .trap on that value
.trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
(on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arg2: 801dc000
Arg3: 00000000
Arg4: 00000000

pretty much the same WMP causes ataport and igxpmp32.sys to fault. Is there any way you can NOT run WMP?

Windows 7 RTM Professional

You haven't been reading my posts then.
I have used VLC and it completely freezes my system.

I have used K-Lite Codec Media Player Classic and it gives me the runtime error I listed earlier.

I have used WMP and get either a BSOD or it completely freezes my system depending on which driver I use.

No video player I have used works perfectly with these drivers. I have only been able to get a BSOD from WMP with the newer driver.

Yep I have read both pages multilple times. We haven't talked about upgrading the bios, have we? there is something that causes the same files WMP, ataport, and the intel video accelerator to be in almost every dump.

I have the latest BIOS (version A10 for the ME051 System BIOS) for my Inspiron 1300 laptop. They haven't released a new BIOS for it since April 2007.

I also never had a problem with this in XP Home or Vista Business, which I had on my laptop before doing a clean install of Windows 7 Business.

Im just touching all bases I have an inspiron 1405 with A10 (32bit) and it is starting to show its age. I dont even have WMP installed so I cant even test it against ataport and the intel accelerator (which I also have).

I cant think of anything right now but let me think about it for a while.

So, I did some more extensive troubleshooting. I tested my hardware using the Dell Diagnostic boot partition--it came up clean. I then remove my video driver and went to the one provided by Dell on their website for my laptop ( instead of provided directly from Intel). This gave me a little better experience. I noticed that I couldn't get a BSOD with this driver--at least I couldn't yet. I could only get it to completely freeze my system if, in the process of dragging the window quickly from one screen to the other, I managed to touch the "Aero Snap" areas. This would immediately freeze my system, both in WMP and VLC.

In the process of dragging the window, WMP would stop playing the DVD for about 10 seconds before it would continue in the new location of the window (if I didn't touch any Aero Snap areas). If I used VLC and got it to completely freeze my system (I never got VLC to give a BSOD), the sound would continue playing for minutes (without any video obviously because my computer was completely frozen) before I would finally use the power button to hard reset the system.

I reinstalled K-Lite Codec Pack yesterday and then used their media player classic today to troubleshoot with. Instead of completely freezing my system when I moved the window from one screen to the other I got the following fatal error:
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program:...iles\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information."
I don't know if that sheds any light on the problem, but thought it interesting none the less.

I have attached another blue screen minidump to see if it's any different. I believe this was from WMP before I rolled back to the older driver.

So, to me it's looking like a bad set of drivers from Intel. It looks like there's a bad and a worse driver that I have access to. It's too bad too, because the newer driver from Intel has a "scheme" feature making it really fast and easy to switch between using dual monitors and just my laptop.
It would be wrong to assume that the BSOD (which no longer happens) and the 'mplayerc.exe' crash share the same root cause. In fact, it's highly likely that they don't.

I'd like to try to contribute to what you and ZigZag have been doing, but I'm dog tired presently and I need a nap.

My suggestion would be to treat the media player crash as a (bad) codec issue.

haha, oops. It's actually Windows 7 Professional. I keep getting confused between Vista Business and Windows 7 Professional. I got it through the MSDNAA program at my school. I believe they got it on August 6th.

Does the current symptom manifest itself if you temporarily go into "basevideo" mode?

- rebooot
- test

(Afterwards, to revert to your standard video driver:

- reboot
