Greetings all. Found your site while googling for help for my error message and thought I'd drop in for some assistance. Seems like a nice friendly group. I like to work on computers myself, but more along the lines of helping my friend set up their network versus troubleshooting BSOD. A little background: I had a HD failure. Managed to get a backup image before it completly died on me. Insert new harddrive, and restore image. So far so good. Start doing windows updates that I missed while I was down. No problem there. Update my graphics driver.. It seems to update okay, doesn't even ask for a reboot. Next time I do reboot... Boom. Steps so far: System restore is useless, tells me that the system drive doesn't have protection enabled, and when I go to system protection, it pulls up the system -properties- instead and gives me no options. I can get into safe mode, and have uninstalled the display adapater and tried to install a different driver. No good so far. Computer is a gateway M-1617 laptop with a ATI X1200. Said with the understanding it may be something else and just bad timing with the graphics driver update. My Info: Code: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.768.3 Locale ID: 1033 Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 1000007e BCP1: C0000005 BCP2: 8C45E06D BCP3: 88F5F894 BCP4: 88F5F590 OS Version: 6_0_6000 Service Pack: 0_0 Product: 768_1 Files that help describe the problem: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini060309-01.dmp C:\Users\Paladin\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-104562-0.sysdata.xml C:\Users\Paladin\AppData\Local\Temp\WERD9DB.tmp.version.txt Thank you for any help in advance. I've gotten really frustrated with this and decided I better ask for help before taking a shotgun to the thing.
