    Your errors is 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.

    Before you test your memory, do you get BSODs at any other time?

    I actually got a blue screen while registering for this today and i found out that it isn't just for the game.

    Okay, then let's test your memory by using Memtest which is free and perfectly safe.

    See this link:

    * Let it run for a minimum of 7 Passes (there are 8 individual tests per Pass).

    * Get back to us with the results.

    No system specs given so this could be helpful, probably not..

    So here is a guy trying to help..

    If your using a Nvidia GeForce video card and are running 4gig RAM on Vista 32-bit, there is a known problem to cause blue screens. Take it down to 2gig and it should work fine.

    Just trying to help..
