    Your minidump crashes at win32k.sys. This is Windows Multi-User Win32 Driver. It has a bugcheck of 7A.


    A page of kernel data was not found in the pagefile and could not be read into memory. This might be due to incompatible disk or controller drivers, firmware, or hardware.

    It`s impossible to tell from your minidump, whether this is due to a hard drive problem.

    Test your hard drive with the manufacturers disk utility.

    Take a look at this thread HERE for a list of hard drive utilities.

    Regards Howard :)
