  1. Just bought a new pc and a seperate copy of windows vista ultimate. I inserted the disk and I got to the screen that said "loading windows files" then after this it went black for a second the blue screen of death appeared.The first part of the error code was 0.0000007F and the rest were 0's. Anybody had this or know what it could mean? Here are the build

    G31-M7 TE motherboard
    intel quad-core 6600 processor
    4GB ram
    geforce 9800GT
    1TB sata hard drive

    When I read your issue I thought to myself, "That sounds like a memory issue." Here is the code and definition:


    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.

    Try this: Take out one stick of RAM at a time and try to load it. Any BSODs?

    Do this: The good thing about this test is it engages almost immediately as you boot-up.

    It could be your harddrive as well.
