    Ok made a system repair CD on my other Win7 system but it was to no avail, started the repair and another blue screen, so very bummed about this. :(

    Any thoughts or ideas. I am in the process of purchasing a new DVD player

    Fortunately for RFP, no! :)

    Hardly iambic pentameter. ;)

    Were this my computer, which it is not, I would:
    1. 1st thing
    Boot to the W7 repair environment & launch system restore
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html
    See option 2 at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html

    2. Boot to the W7 repair environ & launch a startup repair
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html

    3. Put your W7 DVD into the computer you are using.
    Search the dvd for classpnp.s*
    It might be classpnp.sy_ or classpnp.s__
    The * is a wild card

    It might be in a folder called i386

    classpnp.sys need to go to c:\windows\system32\drivers

    We don't get many artzy types here, of which I am aware.
    ;)

    With that in mind, PLEASE, provide the exact error message.

    Did you make a 64 bit or 32 bit W7 repair disk?

    This is the FIRST day of my life in which I recall knowing about RainForestPuppy.

    :)

    So, no, I am now. Besides, if I were RFP & told you, I'd have to . .. ..
    Well, you know how those things work. :D

    Guys? What about the gals around here?

    Which diag?

    We're brilliant around here, but not psychic. :)

    ha ha, I'm more than happy to see if any gals respond. Typically I don't have to post questions as I can troubleshoot fairly well. Quite humbled actually.

    I don't know where or what RFP is doing, the RBN has pretty much filled the space he was in LOL.

    I am running two systems with Win7 64-bit. I made a recover CD from Win6 64-bit on my Optiplex

    If I can get at the drive I can provide the dump file. However, I cannot at the moment. Also, I ran all the recover tests and/or attempted to but get one blue screen after another.

    The diag was red for the Keypad test.

    Ohh I'm plenty artsy, that is for sure:D

    I can only make 64-bit on from a 64-bit system. I have the 32bit DVD but I made the repair disk using the system util via the command line.

    Excellent.

    Try this:
    boot using the W7 repair disk
    Select command prompt
    You'll probably be at X:\sources
    type: C:
    Press enter
    type: cd windows\system32\drivers
    enter
    type: ren classpnp.sys classpnp.ysy
    enter

    type: ren cdrom.sys cdrom.ysy
    enter
    type: exit
    reboot
    remove the W7 repair DVD

    Report the situation.

    Now, about that error msg. :)
    Hopefully renaming classpnp.sys & cdrom.sys will solve the problem.

    If we can access your W7 desktop, we can extract classpnp.sys & cdrom.sys from your W7 DVD

    Clever.

    But a little too deep, metaphysically speaking, for a computer repair forum!

    I could be wrong. UNLIKELY!
    :D

    I hope you are joking.


    Personal?
    NOT even close!
    :)

    There is nothing to forgive.

    Again, I hope you are joking.

    Hi Guys,

    I ran all the diag tests and everything came back clean. I honestly think perhaps it is the DVD. At the moment, I'm back online.

    Will try to copy that file you asked about.

    Thank you so much for all your help.

    Hello, here is the last dump from the minidump directory. The DVD sounds horrible.
