Stop: 0x000000 errors Vista

Hello every one. My HP laptop running on Vista is getting a blue screen almost every time I turn it on and the times it doesn't it will become blue after about 30 seconds. At first the errors were Stop: 0x000000F4 and now they have changed to Stop: 0x0000007E errors. When they were the Stop: 0x000000F4 errors I ended up doing a system restore on my computer and looking to see if I could see if something obvious was the problem, well I couldn't find anything. So I installed all the updates available to Windows and hope it would fix it. It worked for about a hour then the Stop: 0x0000007E errors started happening. If anyone could help me out I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you very much, Joshua

I would try restoring your PC to  a point the error did not occur.

(for example two weeks ago)

OK I just did a system restore and start it from new and now I am getting a Stop: 0x00000024 error and a Stop: 0x00000050 all I have done with it is download the windows updates.
From the same page I quoted before:


0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
A problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of NTFS.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.

Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).
