Can you catch the error code on the blue screen? Also check all connections if new build or upgraded hardware/even recent software installs
Also does it crash, after being eventually pulled up by its bootstraps?

The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect, possibly the culprit is in another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

I think it may be a graphics card driver issuse,download the latest driver (not always the most stable) unistall old driver before installing new one After uninstalling, run a good reg cleaner and temp file cleaner (CCleaner does both very well), reboot, and install the new driver.
Might be worth a shot?

Nope, the problem is not the video card nor it's driver.

It is Zone Alarm. Please uninstall it to alleviate issues.


As a side note, you'll want to update this driver:

ET5Drv ET5Drv.sys Wed Nov 29 01:32:57 2006

Was this an upgrade or a "clean" install?

further to what torrentg has said I would advise remove Gigabyte EasyTune5 to clear that old driver ET5Drv.sys Wed Nov 29 01:32:57 2006

Trying ZoneAlarm and Gigabyte removal right now

Uninstall ZA and you will not get any 0x7f stops.
