Hello,

After previously using and donating to this site on an older computer, I am glad to be back! (sort of!)

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-N250E laptop that is about 2 years old running Vista 32 bit previously running SP2, prior to wipe running Avast free edition, now I am running Norton internet security

The computer will sometimes start to go slow and then BSOD will appear, that saying it was BIOS error, saying that the computer has been shut down to protect from hardware errors. Sometimes the computer would still stay on with the BSOD, , other times it would shut down right away. The computer also has start up errors where it will say "windows did not start up correctly, or windows did not shut down correctly . Sometimes it will start normally, other times I would have to start in safe mode.

Start up repair, and reverting to a restore point did not work. I have the system recovery disk,, so I completely wiped the computer and did a restore to factory settings.

I have not reupdated this install to Vista SP2 yet as I am still having the BSOD randomly as well as the sluggish performance on and off.
THe only log information I have been able to obtain is what I saw on the BSOD before I wiped my laptop

0x0000007E, 0xc00000005,0x894e752B, 0x85a04390, 0x85a0408c

I have an additional 1GB of Kingston ram in my computer, and two Western digital external hard drives, and two USB hubs hooked up. I get errors even with no USB devices hooked up.
SInce it has been wiped clean I dont believe its a virus?
Here is a log of the problem after start up:

This is what the Bluescreen said upon freezing:

A problem has been determined and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time youve seen this stop error, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

The BIOS in this system is not ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios.

Technical Info:
***Stop: 0x000000A5 (0x00000003, 0x8684c728, 0x8684c728, 0x06050203)

Vista tried to diagnose the problem and it is saying that it is an intel display driver for a Lenovo computer?


Where should I go from here ?

Thank You!
