I have a DELL XPS M1330 for just about 6 month. Pretty much since day one I get random BSOD errors
(0x7E, 0xC5).
I got a few BSOD's right at the start and then it hasn't happend for a few month. They started to come back, 3 in the last week. The error message does not give me any indication where to look, no additional information. I also can't really determine what sets them of. One of the errors happend while the notebook was idle. (come back from lunch and found,  the notebook restarted). How can I isolate and find out what is causing those errors.

That's a rather general stop error (a number of possible causes).

See if you have a minidump file in c:\windows\minidump folder with current date. If so, attach it to your response.

Most likely cause is a driver.

I only have a full dump file at the moment and it is almost 2GB. Tool large to post. I will have to change it to the mini dump and wait for another crash. Any other recommendation
Thanks

Got it.

Driver fault. Faulting module is fwdrv.sys which is a firewall driver commonly used by Kerio personal firewall and some others.

I have kerio installed but it is not running currently. (disabled in services). Could that still cause the BSOD fault. I usually turn it on manually as required.

Thanks for your help. I would have never guessed. Saved me a lot of time and grief. I have uninstalled Kerio now. Hope all is well now.

Apparently so. Must be loading somehow.
