Hi I am having a problem with vista. I get bsod stop code 0x0000007e. the pc is a hp pavilion. amd phenom x4 64 bit. It's vista home premium sp2 4gig of ram 500 gig hard drive. My problem is that it will run for a while then it will blue screen. I suspect it's vista because I can boot Ubuntu off my flash drive and it will work well. When I bought the pc it didn't come with a vista disk so I can't repair vista from that. I did get a vista recovery disk recently and it's no help. Any ideas how to fix this? If you have anymore questions just ask. Thanks.

Re: Windows vista bsod 0x0000007e

0x0000007e is usually a faulty driver. There is a free utility available online called bluescreenview. Download that and it should tell you what driver or system file is the culprit. Then you can pinpoint a proper fix.

Re: Windows vista bsod 0x0000007e

ok im sorry it took so long to respond I have been very busy. I tried that software and the problem is the PCIIDEX.sys driver. I tried those files in the bsod posting instructions and the batch file didnt work. So I dont know what to do. I did get the dump folder though. If I need anything let me know I will try and get it. thanks again for your help.

Re: Windows vista bsod 0x0000007e

Looks to me like your Symantec/Norton is the problem.
Please do this:
Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the Norton from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of Norton using this free tool: http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080710133834EN
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus, then check to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on.
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.
