How do I troubleshoot a BSOD? I run VPCs inside of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I have a Vista Business 32-bit VPC that keeps crashing on me. What should I be looking at?

Here's the error message that popped up the last time I rebooted:

Problem signature:

OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.256.6
Locale ID: 1033

BCP3: 902CAD64
BCP4: 00000000

If you don't know how to do this:
Go to the Control Panel, and follow these steps:

1. System Icon
2. Advanced Tab
3. Startup and Recovery -> Settings
4. Enable Write an Event to the system log
5. Disable Automatically Restart
6. Select the following debugging information:
* Small memory dump (64 Kb)
* Small Dump Directory : %SystemRoot%\Minidump
7. Confirm all and restart the computer.

After that, you will find the minidump files (they are created after the computer crash / having BSOD)
in the system folder. Please Zip/Rar these files and upload them to your next post.

These files can help us (not always) to determine what was the cause for the crash / BSOD.

Thanks for the advice. I usually have easy access to that machine, but haven't had a chance to get back to it yet. At this point it may be a couple days before I do.

Finally had time to get back to this today. Changed the settings per your instructions. I have zipped the minidump. How do I upload it to this post?

Here's a screenshot of the BSOD:

I'm afraid that it's only apply to Windows XP.

Thanks for all the help so far. Haven't found anything that addresses my situation but it is helping me identify what to look for. I've been doing more research on Page_Fault_In_NonPaged_Area STOP: 0x00000050 errors and I'm beginning to think maybe it's the Integration Features that can be installed and enabled as part of VPC that are causing the problem. I haven't had time to test this theory extensively, and its not always easy to trigger the Blue Screen of Death so even short sessions without a crash don't necessarily indicate anything.

If you've got any other advice or links, whether new information or proving/disproving my theory, please keep 'em coming. Everything's been very helpful so far.

An update: I tried disabling the Integration Features. That didn't stop the BSOD. Then I went into to the device manager and rolled back the video driver. This basically un-did the Integration Features. I haven't had time to test extensively buy I haven't had a crash since. Unfortunately, I also lost some of the benefits of the features like getting the display to full screen or getting sound out of the VPC.

If anyone has seen this before or has any thoughts, I'd still love to hear 'em.
