Windows 7 laptop restarts unexpectedly (BSOD BCCode : 1000007e)

Hi Experts!

I tried to research it and it appears to be a graphics card error?
Pretty confusing. I included the info that pops up after the restart.
Please help!

Sure... Put back in the old RAM and if you re-boot unexpectedly, you will know for sure.
Ben HartCommented:
I found this reference..

Maybe verify the latest graphic drives are installed, and if possible check the bios for memory allocation, like can you alter the amount of system ram dedicate to graphics and if so assign the maximum amount.

First thing to do would be to replace the RAM in your laptop.
Until you know for sure that the RAM is good, you will spend chasing a lot of "possibilities" that can all be masked by bad RAM.

I'll replace the RAM and let you know what happens.
How is your laptop?
abdurrazSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
I'll know soon as the RAM gets here and I can install it. Thanks for asking!
abdurrazSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
I put the RAM in and the laptop and it hasn't restarted unexpectedly yet. Any way I can test it to make sure?
