    This is a driver fault or a memory problem. Since BSOD's tend to corrupt hard drive data, it would be wise to check your hard drive as well as your memory. You can find instructions here:

    The minidumps show:
    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    ok, thanks.

    i'll do a complete disk check right after this and memtest.

    one main problem is : it is a laptop and i will find it difficult to take apart the hard drive.

    " it is a laptop and i will find it difficult to take apart the hard drive"...

    You don't have to touch the hard drive, you use software to test it :rolleyes:

    "i found out that my first boot was from cd/dvd hardware. is it the problem?"...
    No, as long as you don't hit a key when you see "hit any key to boot from the CD"

    Did you run CheckDisk so that it would fix any errors like the directions said? If you did, you don't need to find the result

    English is not your first language is it?

    Are you still getting BSOD's? Do you have any more minidumps? 0x0000009c means nothing by itself

    We still need you to run memtest86 for at least 7 passes. The instructions are in the link I posted a day ago. Did you install a new hard drive finally?

    Still looks like a hard drive problem. Do this again:
    Run a complete disk check. Click start/run and type chkdsk /f /r and press the enter key. Follow the onscreen prompts and reboot your computer. Windows will check your hard drive for problems. Depending on the size of your hard drive, this can take quite some time...

    Watch the screen for a while. If you see files being changed or deleted, tell us, but let it finish

    You may have a virus or other type of malware infection... SPDT.sys is still associated with Daemon Tools

    while turned on my laptop just a moment ago, i still had blue screen.

    what action to do with sptd.sys ?

    Your latest BSOD is different as the blue screen showed. What is the laptops make and model? Is Windows fully updated using Windows Update?

    "i do not update for office 2003, silverlight, office 2007 sp2, etc"...
    Why not, don't you use Office. If silverlight will install, install it

    i have pre-installed office 2007 sp1 and i think there is no need updating it to office 2007 sp2. And why should i update for office 2003?

    You should remove Office 2003, and just keep current with the Windows Updates including the optional updates. Do this for Office 2007 if you use it
