Cause and Solution for Vista Black Screen of Death (KSOD) KB Posted

August 7, 2009 – 2:57 pm

Microsoft believes that they have found the cause for many of the nagging KSODs reported over the past year.  Something about an event log looping.  I’m not sure I understand the issue nor do I think it is related to the KSODs that were far to coincidentally timed with Zenith SaaZ update but nevertheless if you have a Vista Black Screen of Death, this KB and HotFix may be for you.  Let me know if it works.

  2. The actual cause of this problem was ferretted out by a member of the Sacramento IT Pro User Group, Mr. Dennis Krohn.

    We’ll be toasting him tonight at our meeting.

  3. I’ve downloaded the MS fix for Vista SP2. Maybe a beginner question … how do I apply? I can go into Vista “safe mode” but then get the error that I cannot apply this in the safe mode. Maybe using recovery disk and via command prompt? Will give that a go … Thx for the solution via this thread. Rgds, Jadoo.
