Windows Vista Blue Screen of Death Minidump request

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I'm helping a friend with an aging HP Pavilion Slimline desktop running Windows Vista Home Premium with an AMD 2.0+ GHz processor and 4 GB of RAM. It produces the dreaded Blue Screen of Death every few months or so, and I'm trying to isolate this occasionally pesky issue. The BSOD seems to happen only on startup, and after a forced shut down, her machine then starts and operates normally.

I appreciate any help, but I am specifically looking to have the attached Minidump file analyzed (that I copied from the C:Windows/Minidump folder) so that I can isolate the issue.

Many thanks in advance,

Zovoth

it points to IMAGE_NAME:  ntkrpamp.exe since that is a kernel file, try repairing the OS :

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Greetings Nobu:

Once again you have shown the way... many thanks for illustrating the exact cause of the BSOD by analyzing and interpreting the minidump file, so that I may tackle the issue directly.

I'll try your repair link, with a full system recovery as the backup plan.

Thanks again and may the wind be at your back,

Zovoth
