Let me try to replicate and get the BSOD again.
Do a new fresh download of win7 (7100 or else depends on you).

Default Bsod

Guys, I managed to get the BSOD again. It happens only when the laptop is running on battery. It doesn't happen when it is connected to the external power supply. Screenshot of the BSOD:

We kinda got what we need- the sdbus.sys is the driver for the SD Card reader- you need to figure what brand it is and find an updated driver for it (I happen to have a Texas Instruments reader). The latest Vista compatible driver from the computer manufacturer's website is your first bet.

There is also an option to manage the power for the SD Card reader in my Toshiba, which gets listed only if I install something from Toshiba- I have not installed it.

Did you install ANY drivers at all after installing Windows 7? (If you did, and if the SD Card driver was one of them, then you may want to see if things work without installing the drivers).

Rule of the thumb for now- go with the drivers that comes with 7, or those that get installed from Windows Update- only install device drivers that do not get automatically installed. Hope this helps

Its a built in card reader and I didn't have to install any driver. Windows detected the card reader and installed everythign by itself. I didn't install anything additionally for that. And the card reader is working fine too. I've been taking photos on my cam and transferring it to the laptop through that only. Anyways, I'll hunt around for a driver for the card reader.

check the device manager for anything weird. Like, an exclamation mark or red cross. Windows 7 is bad in drivers which doesnt support vista.

Why don't you disable the card reader and then reproduce the issue. I'm sure we could have more substantial proof of the driver incompatibility issue & then wait for a good amount of time to get an update from your vendor. You will be lucky in case your laptop vendor supported vista, then you will already have a compatible driver for the same.


BTW, what make is your laptop?

It's an HP Pavillion DV5 - 1050ee. I have both Vista and Windows 7 on dual boot. This problem doesn't occur on Vista. Only on Windows 7. The card reader brand is JMicron.

This is the latest Vista driver (32-bit) from the HP's website. It is version 1.00.20.07 A, dated Feb 2009- check the device manager to see what date/ version is installed. If you have an older version than this, you know what to do

Also check the Device Manager to see if its a JMicron 38x series card reader- if it is, here is the driver link from JMicron's website- note that this seems to be for Win 7.

I have a HP Pavilion laptop as well running windows 7 and the card reader is working fine.

Please check the HP support website for an updated BIOS for your machine. I recall there was an updated bios specifically for the card reader support.

Now this brings up another question. Is your Vista and Windows 7 both x86 version or a mix of x64 and x86?

My thoughts all laptop owners- get rid of all non-essential stuff that comes pre-loaded. This includes almost all OEM/ Manufacturer software. They only duplicate something that the OS has (albeit make it a bit easier), and take a toll in terms of performance, and at times stability

Thinking about it, this applies to branded desktops too!

Seems Win 7 free downloads are ending today Aug 20th 2009. Existing users allowed to used it until March/April after which it may require frequent reboots.

Vista is 32 bit and windows 7 is 64 bit. But the driver which HP has on their site (same as the one ph03n!x has provided the link to) works on both the Vista 32 & 64 bit. I installed this driver a couple of days back. Till now, I have not faced the problem. But earlier too I had installed this driver and still the BSOD appeared. That was when I uninstalled Windows 7. I shall wait for a few more days to confirm if it has really solved the problem or not.

@ph03n!x, thanks for the interest shown in helping me out here.
