  1. I recently got a Blue Screen of Death in Vista. Since Auto restart was enabled, I can't get the exact details of the error, but it was a 0X000000F4. I converted the minidump file into a readable text file, but I don't really know how to interpret. Can anyone look at this and tell me what they think the error is?

    @almcneil, did you even read the Minidump? (no reply required)

    This looks to be driver fault

    Well, it's a friend's computer, and he said that it started to freeze alot and then it crashed a couple of days ago. It is a Dell XPS M1530 with Vista, not really sure of all the other specs since it's not mine. Was it iastor.sys that caused the problem? I have read a little bit about Dell having this problem, but most of the articles referred to XP.
