OK, I've been getting some BSDs lately. I thought it was a RAM issue....so I went out to Crucial and bought (2) 16GB kits of RAM to max out my Dell XPS 8700 running Win 7.

Funny thing happened to my way to RAM bliss...I got a BSD (Blue Screen of Death) within 2 clicks of my new desktop running 32 GB of RAM.

I got it back up again but the OS is acting weird. I can't burn a disc and I can't see parts of Control panel windows...like backup and restore.

So, I'm stuck.

I put the old RAM back in again...but now looking to plan out how to do a clean install? Or should I try to surgically repair WIN 7?

Who is up for the challenge?

OK, next step....

Researching about this Kernel Power 41 - error let me to the URL:

http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cras...-failed-3.html

where poster Saammy gave the following possible solution:

I have the solution for the problem.
Searches on regedit for the following entry: DeviceMetadataServiceURL
There you change the URL in the following: http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc
after you have closed the editor is saved the change.
Now the problem is solved and it will also re-loaded device information.


As instructed, I used regedit and searched for "DeviceMetadataServiceURL", and it's value was set to:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Link...69&clcid=0x409

I changed the value to "http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc" now I will reboot to see what happens...
