The only thing of note yesterday: I worked on a computer my dad brought home. It would get a blue screen of death (0x0000007F UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP) shortly after opening Google Earth. Every diagnostic I could run on the memory and graphics all passed. I did all the basic stuff, like updating the video drivers (they were already the latest version), updating DirectX, wiping out Google Earth and reinstalling it (it blue screened during the installation), but the problem still occurred. Even though the installer caused a blue screen, it had installed the program itself. I tried running it using OpenGL instead of DirectX, and it worked fine! I have no idea why DirectX would cause a blue screen, especially because this is a fresh Windows XP install. I was really worried it was a hardware problem. There still may be a hardware problem, but at least the software that's needed works. I guess I'll make this public so anyone with this problem can potentially find this entry.
