Windows 7 Blue Screen of Death Minidump analysis request

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I am helping a friend who has a Windows 7 laptop that has been experiencing the dreaded blue screen of death with greater frequency. I asked her to e-mail me the most recent minidump file, which I had her copy from the C:/Windows/Minidump folder, and which I attach to this question.

I ask that one of you wise wizards analyze the minidump file, so that I can form a plan of action to resolve her issue. Though I am grateful for all assistance, I ask for a specific analysis of the attached minidump file, rather than just general maintenance advice.

Many thanks in advance,

Zovoth

the dump is corrupt, so it holds no real value
Loading User Symbols
Missing image name, possible paged-out or corrupt data.
Loading unloaded module list
.Missing image name, possible paged-out or corrupt data

fyi, i attach the file

i would start by testing ram and disk - with UBCD
i believe you have this CD already Zovoth

Greetings nobus & alexgreen312:

Many thanks for your rapid replies. I had my friend copy and send several more minidump files from her ailing machine, which I attach now, and I am hoping that these are not corrupt. I am also sending a photo of the actual BSOD, which I am hoping will also help isolate the problem.

Alexgreen312, I read the article in the link you sent, but it speaks of a Windows Hotfix, though there was no hotfix link in the article.

I am hoping that these new attachments will help. Many thanks again for taking a look.

Well I managed to get some of the data out which is how I got 0x00000050 from it which is the stop code.

It would appear to be the SynTP.sys driver which is for the synaptics touchpad. There are quite a few posts out there where people have the same issue.

Cheers

Alex

EDIT

You need to unistall the Windows Update KB2670838 which is causing this problem.
