X61 BDOS STOP: 0X0000007E after Standyby Resume - but only when docked.

2008-07-11, 16:34 PM
Product: ThinkPad X61 7674-74U   

Operating system: Windows XP

 

I've been plagued by this since upgrading from an X41 to an X61.

Only today did I finally get around to determining what causes it, and capture the Windows XP BSOD error message:

 

*** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005,0X804EF15F,0XA74DEB8C,0XA74DE888)

 

To cause:

1) When running while docked, and clicking on: Undock Computer

2) Wait for undock to complete.

3) Undock the laptop from the docking station.

4) Enter Standby mode.

5) Re-dock the laptop.

6) Press the "Fn" key to Resume Windows.

7) On mine, I press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Novell Windows Client, and enter my ID and password.

8) Shortly after, the BSOD appears and causes an automatic re-boot.

 

If I (remember to) Resume Windows before docking the laptop, all works well.

 

Our company laptops all run with SafeBoot, so I cannot just upgrade to a new BIOS without losing the hard drive (been there, done that).   SafeBoot appears to alter BIOS, so BIOS changes can prevent access to all the files (all encrypted via SafeBoot).

 

Has anyone else experienced this Undock/physically-undock/Standby/dock/Resume BSOD?  Is there a known solution to this **particular** problem (i.e. not just blindly applying various service in the hope that it may resolve the problem)?

It is never advisable to make any changes to hardware while the computer is in standby...  When you come out of standby the OS doesn't know what happened...  A limitation of the OS and NOT a problem with your computer...

Thank you, Dan.  It all makes sense -- now.  And thanks for the link to the other docking posts.
