I have a vaio laptop given to me as gift..(used) model pcg-srx99k. turns on ok, then a blue screen theat says a problem has been detected and windows has shut down........... check for viruses on your pc. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controlllers. ck hd to make sure properly config. and terminated. run chkdsk/f to chec for hard ddrive corruption, and then restart comp. technical info: ***stop: 0x0000007b (0xf7baf640,0x0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) did the restart , but thats as far as I get..... need some advise how to proceed I am new at this comp. thing but would love to continue learning.
