Greetings wise wizards of EE:
I am helping a friend with a Dell Windows 7 laptop, which produces the dreaded Blue Screen of Death shortly after the Microsoft Windows "splash" screen, right before the desktop appears.
All methods to restore this machine via the built-in recovery tools (such as System Restore) have failed, so I pulled the hard drive and connected it to a healthy computer via a USB to SATA adapter. I am backing up his data, and I recovered the latest Minidump file from the C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
I am requesting an analysis of the attached Minidump file, so that I may properly tackle his dilemma, once the cause has been determined. Though I am grateful for all assistance, I would ask for a specific analysis of the attached Minidump file, rather than just general security or maintenance advice.
Many thanks in advance,
