BSOD Win 7 Problem

Posted on 2012-08-20
Last Modified: 2012-09-03
If you could give me any guidance as to how to go about resolving this problem, I would be most grateful.  

I am running a Lenovo x200 laptop with 3gb memory - Windows 7 Professional - build 7601 - SP1

I got the BSOD on Friday with a non page error.  This is what BlueScreen View gave me.  I have attached the actual dmp file as well.

    This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs.

    Try to run memory test and check your hard disk for errors (run chkdsk).

    Probably caused by : Apsx86.sys ( Apsx86+3984 )

    This driver belongs to the ThinkVantage Active Protection System. You can find an update for it on the Lenovo site.

    I think I accidently came upon the solution which may very well have been the apsx86.sys problem.  I tried a number of things and finally got the PC up in Safe mode.  After trying a number of solutions, I was able to update Norton and Lenovo.  Unfortunately, I missed suggestions #2 and #3 which would have probably been helpful so I am accepting those two solution and I thank you both for the help
