  1. Hello,

    I have a Sony Vaio with: XP, P4 and 2G.

    My PC keeps randomly restarting.

    The event log reads:
    System Error - Category 102 - Event ID 1003
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    I have also attached the minidump file.

    Please help!

    There's a better way of saying that
    You just write "bump" as a single word reply, if there has been no replies after a couple of days

    BugCheck 1000007F, {8, 80042000, 0, 0}
    Probably caused by : Unknown_Image

    This error is very general
    But in most cases it's a matter of updating all your manufacture drivers
    Possibly running Memtest on your Ram
    And also uninstalling any 3rd party Antivirus or firewall, possibly using another one (I normally recommend Avira )

    By the way, pretty sure many of the regulars are away on holidays still, so we are not doing too bad with limited resource
