    Your minis all point to ntoskrnl.exe driver which is a critical process in the boot-up cycle of your computer. You are experiencing a driver conflict.

    Your minis are also pointing to ACU.exe driver; the acu.exe is a process belonging to the Atheros Client Utility (ACU) which is a program that allows additional for configuration and diagnostic functions on HP and Toshiba's range of wireless communication devices. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

    Your dump error is the same in all minis: 0x7F


    There is a hardware or software problem.

    This error is usually caused by a hardware failure. One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode:

    A condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept (also known as a bound trap)

    Software problems

    Hardware failures.

    * I would do two things: 1) See if there is an updated driver for your wireless communication device. This is the simplest and easiest route and may very well take care of your issue.

    2) Microsoft has information on ntoskrnl.exe errors and how to correct this issue. Do option one first and see if that resolves your problem.
