Blue Screen Of Death 0x0000007F

  1. I get the BSOD 0x0000007F when I try to play a game of mine. I have NEVER gotten this before. All my other games work fine, just this one. I also tried to reformat my computer with my xp disc and ALSO got the BSOD. I am using a laptop, so i'm not 100% sure if it's the dust, overheating, overclocking, or the memory. I attached 5 of my latest minidumps. If you need me to provide anything else let me know.

    All of your errors are 0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP

    One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode: (1) Hardware failures. (2) Software problems. (3) A bound trap (i.e., a condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept). Hardware failures are the most common cause and, of these, memory hardware failures are the most common.

    All of your files cited the ati3d1ag.dll which is an ATI driver. Do the following:

    1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro (free version) to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro. If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

    * By the way, what was the reason for reformatting?

    Thank you I will try that. I wanted to reformat to see if it would help at all.

    Also, how do I start it up in safe mode? And may I get a link to the Driver Cleaner Pro please?

    Google Driver Cleaner Pro.

    Safe Mode = Press F8 at boot-up. Keep pressing it.

    Reformatting is usually a last option. Especially since you only had this problem with one game. Reformatting is often done when there is no other recourse such as a heavily infected system.

    I tried everything you suggested above. Sadly for me, it did not work. I'm really starting to think it's just hardware failure or bad ram. And I cannot reformat because it just shows that dang BSOD.. Thank you for trying to help me though. If you have any other suggestions, I'll gladly try them.

    Run memtest on your RAM. This test test takes over almost as soon as you boot-up.

    1. Go to and download the latest ISO version. It is free and perfectly safe.

    2. Burn to a CD.

    3. Place CD in your drive and reboot with CD in drive. (You might have to place your drive as first bootable in your BIOS) The test will take over.

    4. Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    5. If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    6. Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.

    Well, first of all, I do not have a cd burner.

    Second of all, I am using a laptop. So I wouldn't really know how to take out the ram or anything inside it.
