    Legal copy of Windows 7 P rofessional

    It is possible that Windows 7 Professional was pre-installed on the laptop by Dell. Is it possible to get an oem version, so that I do not have to call Microsoft to get it activated?

    Legal copy of Windows 7 P rofessional

    The product key is on the COA sticker. T he laptop is running Windows 7 Professional. I Have not received the laptop yet in the mail. I would assume that the seller, which is a computer recycling company, activated windows with the product key on the COA sticker or it was already installed...

    Legal copy of Windows 7 P rofessional

    I bought a laptop from eBay that has a COA sticker. Where can I download a legal copy of Windows 7 P rofessional that is authorized by Microsoft as genuine? I know it is possible through a torrent but not recommended.

    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    Your bsod occurs within the first minute of login and occurs within a kernel driver therefore the kernel driver is the victim rather than the cause. Does this also happen in safe mode.

    By the way, H2SO4 is sulfuric acid in chemical terminology. Another glimpse into his sarcastic nature.

    Brand new machine, unexpected shutdowns

    I am not insulting anyone. I am telling you that crash dump debugging is way over your level of expertise. H2SO4 knew it. I know it. And anyone with a professional computer background knows it. You will solve a few bsods here and there, but your techniques(not having a trained professional...

    Bend the facts any way you want, he did not have much respect for bsod analysts. His sole reason for being there was to bring some respect to the forum through his posts and stickies. He attempted to train you guys in os internals. It didn't work and he left. Edit: Basically he gave up. It...

    Brand new machine, unexpected shutdowns

    H2SO4, with his knowledge of os system internals, did not have much respect for so-called bsod analysts. I can remember on one occasion that he said to the op sarcastically "If you don't agree with me, then I will let someone else look at your problem". This during your stay at SevenForums...

    Trouble, no one asked for your two cents. I don't need your sarcasm. The ops problem was Zone Alarm and was already solved. I have to wonder why he has remained quiet during this whole ordeal. It never ceases to amaze me that those who know the least are the first to open their mouth. If you...

    Here is your original post: The question is whether 3rd party symbols are on the symbol server or not. You say that my information is incorrect and try to prove it with an example where you claim you found a faulting driver. Well good for you for finding a faulting driver, I am sure that it...

    How can you say that the symbols were pulled from the driver on the system,itself when the information clearly states that no symbols were found. I have highlighted the area in case you missed it. It's just one more error in the comedy of errors and misinformation I have observed. Your...

    For anyone interested about my remarks concerning the third party symbol table and why it is not included in the cache of symbols placed on your computer during a debugging session from the Microsoft symbol server, you only need to read this article: Symbol table - Wikipedia, the free...

    As far as symbols being incorporated into the executable module, that is news to me. If that is indeed true, Microsoft may have allowed that capability especially for drivers in Windbg. After all they have a server devoted to the symbols in the first place. They may not want third parties...

    I stand by my statement that just because there is no symbol table it does not mean that the module is problematic. I wish you knew more about how executable modules are created and the whole compile,link and execute process. A course in compiler construction would be appropriate as I...

    License question -- international versions

    Now that you are experience at installing language packs, and if they are a whole lot cheaper over there, we could make a lot of money selling Chinese bought pcs with the english installed language packs. We could split the difference in price.

    BSOD Win7- I've tried so much.

    Whenever you make a call to a module and it is not there, the stack becomes corrupted because the return address, args to child and stack pointer which have all been pushed onto the stack are no longer valid. Where it goes from there is anybody's guess, however a kernal stack overflow (7f)...

    BSOD Win7- I've tried so much.

    You began getting the 7f exception after renaming the gearaspiwdm.sys driver. Renaming drivers is not recommended, since a program may be trying to call that driver at execution time. In this case, it would need to be dynamically loaded into memory and not found. I am not saying this is what...

    First of all, I would like to say thank you to Kemical for reversing the ban placed on my account by Torrentg. At least someone appreciates my efforts in trying to help people. I am not here to win any awards as I know others are. I do not mean to be arrogant, but when everything I say and...
