Symptoms

On a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista, you receive the following Stop error message. Additionally, the computer restarts unexpectedly.

0x0000007E (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Note

  • The parameters in this error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.

  • Not all "0x0000007E" Stop errors are caused by this problem.

  • This problem occurs when the Storport.sys driver is called to pause or to resume an adapter on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.

Cause

This issue occurs because the Storport.sys system driver passes some incorrect parameters to the StorPortResume function or to the StorPortPause function. Therefore, the system experiences the Stop error, and then the computer restarts unexpectedly.
