So story is this,

Working with friend on their Dell Laptop.

The Dell Laptop info:
Express Service Code: 38398119409
Model # PP39L
Studio 1557

When booting up, attempting to repair windows, etc... the following beauty comes up.
Code:
bsod Stop: c000021a 0xc0000001 0x001003f0

Every now and then we can temporarily get into windows briefly. But not long enough to do anything serious.

I've run a full checkdisk from win7 / forced me to reboot / ran it in a "dos like" screen. Came clean, hdd is dandy and fine.

Laptop is 1year out of warrenty almost.

Replacement parts... for mobo/cpu/ram, cost's as follows...
Code:
[SIZE="1"]All Prices in USD$$$

If you were to replace the motherboard alone. You need the following ordered.
Dell Part# : TR557 and this is available as refurbished for $344.99

Processor Replacement
Core i7 processor  - Dell Part# : G335R, the replacement for this is for $1274.99 (refurbished)

For Memory -- This is the compatible list for this laptop model. Virtually the cheapest replacement.

I'm going to be helping him with using Hiren's boot cd, and try some ram/cpu stress tests, etc.

I've already started him up with what drivers I could install from the site. (Pre downloaded on alternate pc, usb drive/xfer to the laptop to save time while it's temporarily up).

So far, no diff..

I do have a win7 disc (mine). Going to try using it to "repair" from disc, instead of the win7 install on hdd repair feat that bsod's anyhoo...


Does anyone have other suggestions? I've tried googling the error, but I keep getting references to drivers, diff equip failures, etc. Nothing "concrete specific".

Trying to preserve the OS install though... that's the hard part..
